Infographic: Washington APR Continues to Rise
June 20, 2012
The University of Washington's athletic programs charted high marks on the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate data released Wednesday.
The Academic Progress Rate (APR) is a term-by-term measure of eligibility and retention for Division 1 student-athletes that was developed as an early indicator of eventual graduation rates.
UW's women's soccer, gymnastics, and men's tennis programs charted perfect 1,000 scores, and received public recognition from the NCAA for their APR marks.
"We are pleased with our APR scores, and congratulate our teams who have exemplary results, Kim Durand, Associate AD for Student Development, said. "We will continue to strive for improvement across the board, as it is our goal to continue as a leader in the Pac-12 Conference and nationwide."
The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years. The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each quarter 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.
