Education Department Releases College Scorecard Data

The Obama Administration has released new data and metrics for its college scorecard system, designed to help families understand the value of higher ed spending based upon graduation rates, job attainment and other areas of institutional merit.

Like many ranking systems, the federal college scorecard ranks elite colleges and universities high for upper-tier scores in completion rates and post-graduate employment outcomes, while negatively grading for-profit and minority-serving institutions.
