APR Scores For The Big 12's Football Programs Are Out

Here are the APR scores for the Big 12's football programs.

Academic Progress Rate scores for college athletic programs came out today.

The APR, implemented in 2003, is a way to judge how a program is doing on the academic side of things.

Here's how it's described, by the NCAA:

Implemented in 2003 as part of an ambitious academic reform effort in Division I, the Academic Progress Rate (APR) holds institutions accountable for the academic progress of their student-athletes through a team-based metric that accounts for the eligibility and retention of each student-athlete for each academic term.

The APR emerged when Division I presidents and chancellors sought a more timely assessment of academic success at colleges and universities. At the time, the best measure was the graduation rate calculated under the federally mandated methodology that was based on a six-year window and did not take transfers into account.
