“There’s no higher honor for teachers and schools than to be praised by the students who are being impacted by their influence every day,” said Carlo DiMarco, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships and Development, mtvU. college professor rating site (comScore), reaching its highest trafficked months ever in April 2012 (7.5 million unique visitors) and May 2012 (7.4 million unique visitors). Owned and operated by MTV’s college network,
mtvU, the site consists entirely of student generated ratings of current or former professors, featuring more than 7,500 schools, 1.7 million professors and 14 million ratings. The site uses a five point Likert scale as well as a binary scoring system for students to rate professors. Below is a summary of the overall methodology used to compile the 2011 2012 rankings:
Each individual professor rating is first standardized and subsequently the standardized scores for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011 are weighted,
putting more weight on recent years and fewer weight on ratings from the past (15 percent for 2009, 25 percent for 2010, and 60 percent for 2011). Using the weighted score, professors are ranked from high to low. Only professors with 30 ratings or more are included to provide statistical significance.
In an attempt to break ties, professors with a greater number of ratings were ranked higher; the rationale is that a larger amount of information typically results in an estimate closer to the true parameter. professors with the same score and the same number of ratings) still occur. In that case,
if two professors are tied for the same place say 5th then the next available rank is 7th.
It should also be noted that school size does not affect the outcome of the lists nor does it give professors from larger schools an advantage over their corollaries from smaller schools. RateMyProfessors performed a regression analysis on school size vs. number of ratings and found no noteworthy correlation. Data analysis was conducted with the help of Professor Wolfgang Jank, Associate Professor in the Department of Decisions, Operations Information Technologies at the University of Maryland’s Robert H.
