Transparency about multidimensional activities and performance: What can U-map and U-multirank contribute?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Two new, user-driven and web-based transparency tools for higher education are presented: U-Map, a classification of higher education institutions according to their actual activities, and U-Multirank, a multidimensional ranking of higher education institutions’ and study fields’ performances. The chapter sketches their principles and state of art (preliminary results). U-Map and U-Multirank respond to much of the criticism against conventional league table rankings. The tools are described following a brief discussion of horizontal and vertical diversity, and of process and product, concepts which underpin U-Map and U-Multirank
