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!

Did You Know...?


  • Seven out of 10 students say they have a lower opinion of a school that was recommended to them, based on a poor website experience.
  • Seventy percent of students indicate that college websites are the best way to find information on academic programs.
  • Tuition, costs and financial aid was the number 1 desired resource by a margin of 20%.
  • There are many more statistics that you can't afford to miss!
