ROOSE-ANDERSEN RATINGS Unlike other classifications used in this report (AAU, Carnegie and R&D expenditures), the Roose-Andersen ratings apply to individual departments rather than to entire institutions of higher education. Also in contrast to the other categorizations which rely on one or more objective indices, these departmental rankings are based on the judgments of raters. The ratings were developed in 1969 and departments may have changed since then. Nevertheless, these ratings are applicable for the period when the most recent (1977-1978) science Ph.D.'s began their graduate training. The following pages present the leading institutions, rated by quality of the graduate faculty, for six selected science fields: MATHEMATICS PHYSICS CHEMISTRY MICROBIOLOGY PSYCHOLOGY SOCIOLOGY Source: Kenneth D.
