University rankings often include surveys that involve self-assessments, but little is known
about the effects of these self-assessments on results. This paper tests for the existence of
leniency effects and differential leniency effects, terms borrowed from the performance
assessment literature, with a data set of ratings and rankings of Australian university
disciplines by Australian academics. It finds support for the leniency effect – these academics
rate and rank their own universities higher than others do. It finds less support, however, for the
differential leniency effect – academics at the lower-rated universities do not seem to overrate
their universities more than do academics from the higher-rated universities.
