America’s Top Colleges 2016 Rankings Methodology
To formulate their listing, Forbes partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity to assess schools. There are several factors used for calculations, each of which fall into one of five general categories. The general areas are: Student Satisfaction (25%), Post-Graduate Success (32.5%), Student Debt (25%), Graduation Rate (7.5%), and Academic Success (10%).
According to the magazine: “This list of 660 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by our belief in “output” over “input.” Meaning, we’re not interested in what gets a student into college…. Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college?”
