Abstract

This report analyzes current methods of ranking college programs, and compares them to the preferences of students, educators, employers, and other individuals. Ranking sources are located and classified by the ranking criteria used. A survey is conducted of the general population that determines attitudes towards various ranking criteria. The paper concludes with a comparison between attitudes of survey respondents and the actual criteria used by ranking sources.
