ANAAA is currently using 10 standards and 108 indicators to determine the university ranking, among them are vision, mission, methods, outcomes, quality, student excellence and the objective of the program/course itself in order to line up with the vision and mission of the institutions.

The Executive Director of ANAAA, Edmundo Viegas said, the evaluation results for the public and private higher education institutions are 14 in totals, but the four mentions institutions are the top-ranking universities with the scores of 70-89 percents, which have fulfilled the requirements given by ANAAA.

Canossa Professional Institute (IPDC), has attained 75-89 percent of grades based on the courses the school has offered which are Administration Management, Technical Computer and Computer Information (IT), these three programs ANAAA has given grades B to two programs while one is C.
