I promised a look at Tech’s APR scores yesterday, but the Da’Shawn Hand news got my content schedule all out of whack, as Frank Beamer would say. Today we’ll take a quick look at Tech’s scores across all sports.
All the data in this report is multi-year data from the Academic Progress Rate scores of the last four years: 2008-9, 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12. The sport is listed, then the multi-year score. A perfect score is 1,000, and a program can be punished by the NCAA if they fall below 900.
The APR is not a calculation of graduation rates. Instead, it tracks whether or not student-athletes are on track to graduate.
We’ll start with the men’s teams…
Cross Country: 1000
Indoor track: 979
Outdoor track: 982
All of Virginia Tech’s men’s sports rank well above the NCAA low point of 900. None of those programs are in danger of drawing the eye of the NCAA.
Here is how the women’s programs stack up…
Cross Country: 992
Indoor track: 945
Outdoor track: 958
Those multi-year scores are all well above the magic 900 mark. On the whole, Virginia Tech’s APR scores are in very good shape.
