No IU team with lower than 963 in APR

Men’s basketball’s perfect score of 1000, arguably the highlight of the Academic Progress Report for Indiana, was announced last week with the Public Recognition Awards. That was only part of a very strong performance across the board for IU, as evidenced Tuesday when the rest of the report was released. Football’s score of 963 was the lowest for all teams. That’s still a healthy number for a sport with 85 scholarship athletes and significantly more walk-ons and it was only a point down from the football team’s score a year ago. A release including the rest of Indiana’s scores follows.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – With 11 teams earning a perfect 1,000 APR for the 2011-12 academic year, Indiana University’s 24 sports comfortably exceed NCAA required standards according to the NCAA’s most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rate report.

The 11 programs earning a perfect score for 2011-12 were men’s basketball, men’s cross country, men’s golf, men’s soccer, men’s tennis, men’s outdoor track, wrestling, women’s golf, women’s softball, women’s soccer and women’s tennis.  With perfect multi-year scores of 1,000, the IU men’s basketball, men’s golf and women’s tennis programs are tied for the top score nationally and in the Big Ten Conference.  IU’s men’s basketball program was the only league school with a perfect score.

“I want to congratulate our student-athletes, coaches and staff for embracing this high priority for our department,” said IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass. “These are successes of which all of Hoosier Nation should be proud.  We are truly entering the next “golden era” of Indiana University athletics.”

Last week, the NCAA also recognized the IU men’s basketball, men’s soccer, men’s golf, and women’s tennis programs with an APR Public Recognition Award, which is given to high-performing teams that posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in their particular sports.

The Academic Progress Rate is a real-time measure of eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team.

Noting The APR • The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.

• Under the revised penalty structure, the Division I Board of Directors has set a cut score of 900 (out of 1,000) as a threshold for teams to meet or face possible sanctions. That cut score will increase to 930 in a few years. An APR of 930 projects a 50 percent Graduation Success Rate (GSR).

• The goal of the NCAA’s academic performance program is improvement, not punishment. Not only does the program ensure accountability for student-athletes, teams and institutions, but also it provides fairness by considering individual circumstances per team and school.
• This year marks the10th year of APR data for most teams. The APR is a multi-year rate based on the most recent four years of data.
