Ranking Systems Clearinghouse

A serious attempt to help us all make sense of all this difficult league table business.

The Institute for Higher Education Policy’s (IHEP) Ranking Systems Clearinghouse provides a road map of this complex rankings landscape, offering annotated links to these national and international ranking systems and to research about rankings world-wide. It is an outgrowth of ongoing international efforts by IHEP, UNESCO-European Centre for Higher Education (UNESCO-CEPES), and the International Rankings Expert Group (IREG) to make rankings transparent and applicable for current higher education dialogue and for all engaged in this work to learn from each others experience.

The Ranking Systems Clearinghouse which is part of the rather respectable-looking IHEP certainly seems to have comprehensive coverage of the international tables. Most valuable though are the references (as implied by the title) to a host of articles covering a wide range of rankings-related topics.

Really useful stuff.

  1. Useful site, thanks.

    I collected the results from the various UK newspaper league tables, and some international ones, and added them to a spreadsheet, the idea being that it should ‘average’ out the results and remove the quirks and failings of each methodology.

    I mainly did it out of self interest, but looking at my web stats it seems quite a few people have found it via Google.

    Feel free to take a look.
