While shedding light on the ranking criteria, the Management of Webometric, a leading Spain-based Institutions ranking organisation stated that four ranking factors were used which include; openness rank, impact rank, presence rank, and excellence rank.
It noted those four factors were the criteria used to determine which Polytechnic tops the table out of all Polytechnic Institutions in Nigeria.
The Ranking Web or Webometrics is the “largest academic ranking of Higher Education Institution” based on the assessment of Composite Indicators and Web Impact Factors”.
“The original aim of the Ranking is to promote academic web presence, supporting the Open Access initiatives for increasing significantly the transfer of scientific and cultural knowledge generated by the universities to the whole Society.
“In order to achieve this objective, the publication of rankings is one of the most powerful and successful tools for starting and consolidating the processes of change in the academia, increasing the scholars’ commitment and setting up badly needed long term strategies,” Webometrics said on its website.
