On stability of educational rankings

Grzegorz Koloch, Tomasz Kuszewski, Tomasz Szapiro


The paper deals with the problem of decreasing the imprecision in multicriteria evaluation of objects. The evaluations of educational institutions presented in form of rankings are investigated. In this context the role of ranking and sources of vagueness are discussed. The general, mathematically based concept of stability of ranking is introduced and used to describe the stability properties of an educational ranking.
