UNIVERSITY RANKINGS Value Added

Which universities get top marks for going the distance with their

students? In this output measure, consulting statisticians from McDougall Scientific Ltd. juxtaposed two sets of figures. The first includes measures related to the incoming student: average entering grade and the percentage of entering students with averages of 75 per cent or higher. The second examines two measures of student achievement:

the proportion who graduate and student awards.

Finally, the statisticians identified those schools with the greatest difference between the two figures.
