US Universities A11Y & HTML ranking

We’ve checked the candidate sites using the latest versions of the axe-core accessibility engine and the W3C Validator on up to 100 pages from each site.

Based on these checks we’ve applied a score, where we take the average number of issues per page, and where errors are counted twice and warnings are counted once.

So, the lower the score, the fewer access barriers a site has - so the site is ranked higher.

These sites are scheduled to re-check monthly, so it’s a live leaderboard that will reflect changes in the rankings.

Without further ado, here is the current TOP 10 US Education A11Y & HTML Leaderboard:

  1. De Anza College
  2. Johns Hopkins University
  3. Georgetown University
  4. Emory University
  5. University of Notre Dame
  6. Northwestern University
  7. Yale University
  8. Rice University
  9. The University of Texas at Austin
  10. Washington University in St. Louis

Congratulations on all the candidates that made it into the Top 10 this month, and special mention to De Anza College (almost zero issues on their site!) and The University of Texas at Austin (enters at TOP 9).
