The rankings in the “Top U.S. Colleges & Universities for Teaching” are based on what Database calls “only the most highly respected, authoritative data sets” from the federal government and the Carnegie Foundation.
Managing Director of Communication and Partnerships Teresa Mullins offers a “very well deserved ‘Congratulations’ to Chadron State for its high ranking as well as “a huge thank you for being a fantastic educational option for thousands of students.”
The The College Database is a free, non-commercial website dedicated to providing current and future college students and their families with accurate and valuable college and career-related information.
Mullins says their primary sources and partners include two key government data sets: NCES – the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education; and IPEDS – the primary federal source for data on colleges, universities, and technical and vocational postsecondary schools.
From the private side is the Carnegie Classification - widely used to show and adjust for differences between schools, and to design research studies to make sure the sample adequately represents the institutions, students, or faculty being studied.
