Results -Are you wondering how a specific educational  institution has been historically preparing their students for sustained student success, performance improvement outcomes?

Review the information below. I will be adding to this on an ongoing basis. If you find information specific to performance improvement that can be added to this list please let me know and I’ll add it, as appropriate.

Note that some of these lists limit themselves to butts in seats information like, admissions, retention, and graduation, the real objective of education is measurable advanced student success, performance improvement outcomes; measured, documented:relevant curriculum, relevant adaptive learning methodologies, relevant graduation, relevant job placement, relevant sustained individual student contributions to society.

The above items may be lacking, but they are critically important to understanding if and how an education organization will directly assist you in receiving a positive return (outcome) on your educational investment (time, money and opportunity cost).

“More than 90 percent of graduates placed in jobs, or graduate school within a year of graduation. In fact, 2015 University data indicated a 97 percent job/grad school placement rate for 2014 University graduates”… Education must be much more specific on documenting relevant, individual student, graduate,  job placement, outcomes, that result  in relevant,  individual student performance improvement outcomes, that achieve sustained, relevant, individual student, contributions to society

“College Factual offers an alternative, in rankings, data, analytics, recruitment and marketing. Our goal is to get students into the colleges and majors that fit them best so they can graduate on time and begin careers they are passionate about. We want to work with colleges to make that dream a reality”

These institutions from the U.S. and nearly 60 other countries have been ranked based on 12 indicators that measure their academic research performance and their global and regional reputations. Students can use these rankings to explore the higher education options that exist beyond their own countries’ borders and to compare key aspects of schools’ research missions. These are the world’s top 750 universities.
