"universitynavigator" startet in Kanada - Vorbild ist das CHE-Ranking

Mit ist ein webbasiertes Angebot für einen interaktiven Hochschulvergleich in Kanada gestartet. Das Angebot schafft nach dem Vorbild des CHE-Rankings die Möglichkeit, Hochschulen auf der Basis von unterschiedlichen Indikatoren nach persönlichen Präferenzen zu vergleichen. Es ist auf Initiative des Educational Policy Institute (EPI) in Kooperation mit der Zeitung Globe and Mail entstanden.

Alex Usher, Vize-President von EPI, stellt bei der Begründung der Initiaive die Vorzüge des CHE-Rankings heraus: „The Centre for Higher Education Development has come up with a set of web-based “rankings” which are, for the moment, unique. As in other rankings, the CHE collects data on a range of indicators through student surveys and third-party indicators. Unlike other [rankings (d.R.)], they do not weight the indicators, nor do they aggregate them to create aggregate “winners”. Instead, users select the indicators on which they wish to “rank” institutions, enter them into the system, and the web-based server automatically creates a ranking of institutions according to the selected criteria. Even better, it’s done on a department-by-department basis.

This, to my mind, is the future of rankings. It compares institutions at the level they should be compared at and it does so in a flexible way, not according to some pre-ordained, one-size-fits all weighting formula handed in an essentially arbitrary manner. Most importantly, it shows that there are many different possible answers – all of them valid - to the question “which university is the best?”, because there are literally millions of possible combinations of rankings depending entirely on which criteria one chooses to judge “quality”. In fact, we at EPI were so impressed, we’ve decided to try something similar.”
