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. University of Wisconsin-Madison
  3. Johns Hopkins University
  4. Georgetown University
  5. Carnegie Mellon University
  6. Emory University
  7. University of Notre Dame
  8. Northwestern University
  9. Yale University
  10. Rice University

Congratulations on all the candidates that made it into the Top 10 this month, and special mention to the University of Wisconsin-Madison (entering at TOP 2) and Carnegie Mellon University (entering at TOP 5).
