The U.S. Department of Education outlined its framework for rating colleges in a report issued earlier today, as reported by the New York Times. It plans to group schools into one of three categories: high-performing, low-performing and those in-between.
The article is interesting for two reasons: first, it provides a preview for how the government plans to assess college performance, and second, it's an instructive example of guarding against "false precision."
