United States Education A11Y & HTML Conformance Leaderboard

This leaderboard reflects the current status of the major United States universities and community colleges, based on the number of access barriers found on their sites using the latest versions of the axe-core accessibility engine and the W3C Validator on these pages.

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.
