The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the most recent four-year period, encompassing the 2009-10, 20-10-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.
The NCAA national office also announced the 2012-13 NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) data, as part of the annual NCAA Division I Academic Performance Program (APP). The searchable database can be found here.
