We know many of you have been eagerly anticipating our latest Rookies Global School Rankings as we understand the significance of these rankings to you, your institutions, and your students. This is why we'd like to share the following news:
A Slight Delay with a Big Reason
This year, we are making significant enhancements to our Rankings that will redefine your experience. These enhancements are geared toward creating a brand-new user experience while ensuring a seamless transition for our legacy content. Our goal is to provide a dedicated space for showcasing your remarkable achievements for years to come, and will be seamlessly integrated into our main website, no longer tucked away on our Discover blog.
We're launching in October. We understand that this timing may not be ideal for everyone, but we greatly appreciate your understanding as we work toward the bigger picture.
Looking Ahead to Next Year
Next year's rankings will be an even more exciting experience. We'll be able to announce rankings much earlier, giving your schools ample time to prepare marketing campaigns and maximise the impact of the announcements.
Additionally, the SEO improvements and development updates we've implemented will drive more traffic to our platform, translating to greater visibility and recognition for your institutions.
Removing Perceived Bias
From the very beginning, our commitment has been unwavering - to provide an impartial and equitable ranking system that transcends school size. Our rankings are meticulously crafted based on objective criteria, with a particular emphasis on Median student scores. This approach accurately reflects students' capabilities, prioritising their achievements over the institution's size.
While we've always integrated bonus points into our rankings, we've recently taken a monumental stride towards enhancing fairness. These bonus points have been refined with carefully calculated weighting, ensuring that recognition is distributed with the utmost equity among all schools, regardless of their student population.
We appreciate your patience and support as we work to make our rankings even better. Thank you for being part of the Rookies community, and we look forward to sharing these enhancements with you soon.
