Two small updates on college ratings

Two tidbits on the upcoming Education Department college ratings from Deputy Under Secretary Jamie Studley's session at the Education Writers Association conference, via Twitter:

  1. The Education Department wants to expand the window for considering earnings – meaning they're either going to need retroactive data or the ratings won't be complete for a long time
  2. Timing is "next few months." Earlier promises: "late spring," "midyear." We seem to still be looking at a summer or early fall release.
