9/29/2010: IR has posted a spreadsheet of UO’s NRC rankings here. If you use the numerical ratings alone (i.e. ignore the reputational survey) and use the midpoint of their confidence range, then divide by the number of programs evaluated in that discipline, you get a crude percentile rank. Here’s that data for UO. So our Psych department is doing the best of all UO departments, at 16%. 11 of our 21 programs are at or above the 50th percentile in their field. Not bad for a university that continues to pay its full professors 84% of the average, and which spends
63% 63.25% of the average on research.
Note that the NRC only bothers to evaluate a subset of the best PhD granting programs, and these percentiles are relative to that subset, show showing up on the list at all is not too shabby an accomplishment.
