Schedule Planning Just Got Easier.
Students needing help picking their classes is something that happens at universities around the nation. ClassRanked.com was designed to alleviate the stress around the registration process and give students data behind which classes to choose.
Co-founders of ClassRanked, Hayden Hall, Dilan Trivedi, and Max Labaton are familiar with the difficulty of course registration. The three friends founded the site after spending hours going through outdated reviews, asking others for advice, and messaging different groups on campus to find their perfect schedules.
They then built the ClassRanked platform to offer students a way of seeing data provided from universities to make more informed decisions on course enrollment. Now, the site is available at over 400 colleges and universities, allowing students to see grade distributions to understand how students in past semesters performed in classes.
“We had faced the same problem millions of other students face each semester when choosing classes,” co-founder Hayden Hall said about the creation of ClassRanked. “We realized that students are left in the dark and wanted to give them a way of using objective data to perfect their schedules.” ClassRanked provides that solution to students: the ability to see past grade distributions by class and by professor, coupled with user reviews and course recommendation tools.
Unlike the typical class review sites, the ClassRanked platform does not rely on word-of-mouth experiences left by often disgruntled students. Rather user reviews can be used to contextualize the historical grading data that is offered by class or professor. “For the first time ever, students can see how past classes performed and can use that to predict the difficulty and viability of a class for their schedule,” Hall continued.
Hall encourages students to join the more than 250,000 ClassRanked members who rely on the site as a must use utility for students who are planning their academic futures and making the most of the investment they are making in a higher education.
Launched in 2019 by classmates from Duke University, ClassRanked is a technology enabled platform that unlocks value for students, employers and higher education institutions through building the largest data set of students’ actual academic performance in courses offered by more than 300,000 faculty at more than 400 colleges and universities.
