Education in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) occurs at institutions of essentially every Carnegie classification, at three basic fundamental levels: baccalaureate, graduate clinical, and doctoral research. Unlike in collegiate athletics in which the National Collegiate Athletic Association proudly embraces stratification of university athletic departments sponsoring the same sport, stratification is not assumed across institutions of Carnegie classifications offering the same degree program. Without core benchmarks and valid assessment tools to illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of each program, we are reduced to anecdotal information and rhetoric to describe program quality. U.S. News and World Report has provided annual rankings of graduate clinical programs in CSD for each of the past 5 years. However, this ranking is based exclusively on responses to a single subjective question and is limited to accredited clinical programs.
