Thanks for the info. If my memory serves me correctly, one of your data points means, together with a comparison of Alabama's 2008 and 2009 peer assessment scores, that that fine institution raised its peer assessment score as much as any school in the last year (.2).
I know it is fashionable to lambast these rankings, but in the case we use particular data points the surveys provide (as Leiter suggested), and particularly in the case of the peer assessment data (which had a 70% response rate) I think there is something to be learned. Like, for example, that Alabama is making substantial improvements in overall faculty quality--something I agree with from my internal perspective.
