U-Multirank indicates how universities perform by showing their position in five performance groups (“very good” through to “weak”) for each of some 30 different indicators. For this, it uses five rank groups. The rank groups refer to the distance of the indicator score of an individual institution to the average – or rather the median – performance of all institutions that U-Multirank has data for. With regard to the grouping procedure there are three different types of indicators and rank group calculations:
a. “Regular” quantitative indicators
b. Rating indicators
c. Student survey indicators
