Ali Baykal

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Although the higher education is not compulsory even in the highly developed countries almost every citizen has a chance to get access to universities or colleges. In developing countries however tertiary education is a privilege for the citizens at the upper level social strata. It is an investment to be made for social mobility upward. Is there a significant correlation between the quality of higher education and the quality of secondary education of the countries all over the world. The simplest and most repetitive measures of the quality in higher education and secondary education are world university rankings and country rankings in PISA respectively. In this paper the world university rankings of Times Higher Education (THE) and QS University rankings for the year 2018 are brought together. The final rank of any country is assumed to be the rank of the university at the highest rank from that country. The reason why for this choice is the fact that there are some small countries represented by a small number of universities in the list but on the other hand there are some countries represented with relatively large number of universities at relatively lower ranks. The final country rankings for higher education are matched with their rankings in PISA 2015. The rank order correlation has been found to be highly significant but far from being perfect unity.
