Among World's 100 Best Schools Brazil's USP Advances 26 Points

USP, Universidade de São Paulo Brazil's USP, the University of São Paulo, was considered the 87th best university in the world in the Webometrics ranking. Of the 500 institutions mentioned, USP, which climbed 26 positions in comparison with the list produced in July 2008, is in the first place among the Brazilian universities.

The methodology of the ranking considers the quantitative analysis of material made available on the Web, especially those related to processes of generation and academic communication of scientific knowledge, evaluating scientific activities, their performance and impact.

The top ten positions in the Webometrics study are occupied by institutions in the United States. They are, respectively: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford, Harvard, California Berkeley, Cornell and Michigan Universities, the California Institute of Technology and the Universities of Minnesota, Illinois and Texas.

Among the Latin-American universities, the National Autonomous University of Mexico came in the first place, in 44th in the general list. After USP, among the 300 best in the world, came Unicamp (159th), the University of Chile (234th), the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (285th) and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (299th).

USP also rose ten points in its position among the 300 most researched repositories in the world. The second edition of the Ranking Web of World Repositories places the USP Digital Thesis and Dissertation Library in the 76th position.

Both the researches, promoted by Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientí­ficas (CSIC), a Spanish public research organization, are disclosed twice a year, in July and January. Over 16,000 higher education institutions were analyzed worldwide.

Ch.c said: "THE USA HAVE THE WORLD BEST 10 UNIVERSTIES!!!!!!"

You are aware Harvard University now hands out A's to students like it's candy? It's rated as one of the top Ivy schools in the United States. My university is no where rated "top" like Harvard but I have a professor in one of my classes who boasts how many students (seniors no less) he gives D's and F's to.

Excerpts from Fox News story.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,39277,00.html
Quote:

A Harvard University study issued this week confirmed reports of grade inflation at the prestigious Ivy League school, revealing that about half of the grades issued last year were A's or A-minuses.
The report tracked grades given at Harvard for the past 15 years and documented a steep increase in top grades in the last decade. A's and A-minuses accounted for 33.2 percent of all grades in 1985 but a staggering 48.5 percent last year. Failing grades, D's and C's made up less than 6 percent of all those given.
Quote:

"I'm very glad the university is discussing the matter and is going to do something," Mansfield told Fox News in an interview. "It is a scandal -- and this is proof. It's bad for our reputation because we look so lax."
Some of the factors driving professors' generosity with grades were pressure to grade similarly to colleagues, fear of becoming known as a "tough grader," and pressure from students accustomed to higher grades, the Harvard study said.
A monkey could get an A in Harvard. It's a school for pumping out America's elites - you go to that school and your future is set.

First of all, ch.c. faggot, shut the f**k up. your biased rhetoric bores the hell out of me.
Ch.c is spending so much time here writing shit just because he was dumped by his brazilian boyfriend... that was what he said before and that is why he's so against a nation...

Why don't you find yourself another boyfriend? but this time a swiss one... or if you are not capable, just buy a young one from Asia...

"Webometric indicators are provided to show the commitment of the institutions to Web publication. Thus, Universities of high academic quality may be ranked lower than expected due to a restrained web publication policy."
That is funny as hell. The title of this article is a complete and utter lie. Can the newsroom get over their inferiority complex?

My midget country with a population of 7,8 millions has 6 Universities ranked within the World Best 200.
Not that bad...AT ALL....wether you like it, admit it, or not !

Last but not least :
My midget country is ranked WORLD FIRST for patents on per capita.....wether you like or not !

And about your insinuation of corrupted country....YOU BETTER CHECK THE CORRUPTION RANKINGS FIRST....JUST THE WAY YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND OUT THE USA HAVE THE WORLD BEST 10 UNIVERSITIES !!!!!!
And then write down the ranking of my country and YOURS....the USA you are so proud of. The country who wants to dictate
everything to everyone and continually end up shooting in their own rear at the end.
I just remind you that your currency LOST 75 % OF ITS VALUE against my currency.....since 1970 !

Why dont you come back on those 2 rankings of patents per capita and corruption ?
No doubt.. YOU WONT !
iF YOU DO I PROMISE TO SHIP YOU A DOZEN CONDOMS. Females condoms you could put in your rear !

I bet that you are a TV ! Male the day....TV at night !

First of all, ch.c. faggot, shut the fuck up. your biased rhetoric bores the hell out of me.
Second, it's great that we (USA) have the best universities in the world, (above that corrupted swiss area), but to bad not many americans can't afford to go there. of course Ch.c. will laugh like a little girl again, but that's all what she, oh i mean he can behind the computer. In real, I'll bet with everybody here, it, Ch.c., is a wimp. Anyway, great to read that Brazilian universities are doing well and have the will do to better.
