Ranking Of Universities In Nigeria From Our Proposed Ranking System (2020) by gabonsky: 4:41pm On Mar 06
This Proposed Ranking System was developed for the purpose of ranking all tertiary institutions in developing nation (A Case study of Nigeria Universities). Nine existing ranking systems were considered in this study and aggregated to form a unified system. Twenty-two criteria were identified as a result of the aggregation but only seventeen criteria are used and percentage weights were also assigned objectively to each. Web crawling algorithm was employed to extract the value of each criteria that are available on the university website while other criteria that are not available are sourced from the National Universities Commission official website http://www.nuc.edu.ng (Nigeria Statistical Digest Report, 2018) are manually input into the proposed ranking systems. System implementation was carried out in PHP and Python. The best five universities from the proposed ranking system are University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, University of Benin and University of Ilorin. The proposed ranking system will give a better and reliable ranking result for universities in developing nations than other existing ranking systems because it contained more robust parameters. Hence, it is recommended as a tool for ranking of tertiary institutions in developing nations.

UNN is in 7th position and they did very well in the proposed ranking system because they have high web impact and presence.

That is why its called proposed ranking system, what i want you to look at is the criteria description and its assigned weight. you can download the full paper https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rt4mWHQkgv4acoT6SXUC5dqEqawOTfBE/view?usp=sharing

I am proposing this ranking system to be the yardstick or benchmark for ranking universities in Nigeria because we don't have one yet, we depend on foreign ranking bodies for position of our universities in the league table like Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), Webometric Ranking of World Universities (WRWU) and QS World University Ranking etc.

you can't just vouch and consider criteria for determining the top universities without educating us how you derived it

which criteria description and assigned weight do you used in your ranking model and which formula do you used?
