A SAMPLING OF THE NRC'S RANKINGS
In its most recent rankings released yesterday, the National
Research Council used a new methodology to characterize
how Ph.D. programs stack up against peer programs nation-
wide. Unlike prior years when a single rank was assigned to a
program, this year's rankings use ranges to more accurately
reflect the relative quality of Ph.D. programs. The first set of
ranges, the top line for each department, are based on facul-
ty perception of peer programs' reputations paired with data
collected from those programs. The second set of ranges, the
bottom line, reflect faculty opinions on how important each of
the 20 criteria considered are to the programs' overall quality.
The number to the right of each pair of lines is the number of
schools nationwide that have that department. The NRC's data
was drawn from the 2005-2006 academic year.
This is a sample of the rankings,
