German Sociological Association: Yes to Evaluation, No to University Ranking (June 21, 2013)

On 21 June, the German Sociological Association has published a statement against the CHE (Centre for Higher Education Development) University Ranking which is a subject-level classification covering a range of academic disciplines that has been published annually since 1998. According to the GSA, the CHE ranking

“…has serious methodological and empirical deficiencies, […] withholds vital information from prospective students, as its declared target audience, and […] gives rise to wrong decisions on the part of science-policy decision-makers”.
