TEXAS - The Brookings Institution has released “Beyond college rankings: A value-added approach to assessing two- and four-year schools," highlighting the value added by Texas universities.

“A lot of popular rankings will take into account a lot of things about a school and maybe some things about the students who go to that school, but we’re looking exquisitely at what happens to graduates once they graduate,” said Siddharth Kulkarni, an author of the report.

“These rankings are a lot less biased by student characteristics.”

Below is a snippet of some Texas universities, ranked by mid-career value added in salary.
