The 2016 Elsevier University League Tables results have been published and the department has again been rated first in the Netherlands (followed by Amsterdam, Utrecht, Leiden and Nijmegen).
The tables rank facilities, teaching, programme, staff, assessment, and organisation and communication. With the exception of Assessment (where Groningen received the second highest grade), the department was first or joint first on all other measurements. With the exception of one score that remained the same, all of the other scores increased.
These kinds of tables are never 100% accurate measurements of things, but they give students and potential students some idea of the strengths and weaknesses of particular departments.
