Enrollment Power Index® (EPI) - Website Grade and Functionality
Enrollment Power Index® is an evaluation of every college website in the country, scoring each one for the presence or absence of vital components necessary to take a prospective student to an enrolled student.
Your report shows your grade, as compared to the nearly 3000 sites rated on 38 different criteria, along with recommendations for improvement. As a bonus, you will also receive a listing of the schools that were rated "Head of The Class" sites for each of the different categories.

How do we do it?
- Over 100,000 college-bound high school students are asked to participate.
- A focus group identifies the functional features of each site.
- Benchmarks are research-validated and reviewed each year.
- Statistical tests determine the relative importance of each feature to students.
- Institutions are initially scored on a 100 point scale, then letter grades are assigned using a traditional curve.
- And that's not all, this project takes us months to put together each year to make sure we get it right!
