Posting this here only because more folks read this category.  Here are the 2017-2018 APR scores.  I don't understand how track is reported in the database, so I don't have conf. ranking notes on track teams.

The school's press release on APRs is here: https://portlandpilots.com/news/2019/5/8/general-pilots-remain-in-good-standing-after-latest-apr-announcement.aspx

The release references comparisons to PSU, UO and OSU, but does not mention any comparisons to WCC peers.

Okay, I'm not a math or numbers guy (obviously), but to me the APR is just a bunch of numbers and I see little meaning or significane to any of them.

What does 1,000 or 975 or 930 mean in real terms? How are those numbers an indication of how well a school/team is doing academically day in and day out?

"The APR (was) created to provide more of a real-time measurement of academic success than graduation rates offer, (and) is a team-based metric where scholarship student-athletes earn one point each term for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating."

A point for remaining eligible and a point for staying in school or graduating?  Isn't it clear to anyone who has attended various schools or knows someone from different colleges across the US that the criteria for matriculation and graduation varies markedly from school to school?  When I was an undergrad student at UP, you either passed your courses and played, or didn't pass and you went back home...how is it different today with the APR?

If a student-athlete doesn't do well, is it a reflection on the recruiter, the professor, the tutor, the coach, or the student-athlete...or a combination of all?

I guess some NCAA bean counter loves this stuff, and I guess I'm proud of UP for not being penalized for something, but really, I'd just like to see the UP Pilots MBB team have a winning season...now that would mean something!!

This number I can understand: On Sunday, 52 undergraduate and 5 graduate UP student-athletes representing 28 different majors across all 5 schools received their degree at UP Commencement.

More understandable numbers and a few highlights from the 2018-19 academic year:

• 3.28 Athletic Department GPA (highest since fall of ’16)
• 93 student-athletes (35.6%) received Dean’s List honors
• 76.63% of UP's student-athletes had a cumulative 3.0 or higher
• 26 student-athletes earned a 4.0 GPA

• 76.63% of our student-athletes had a cumulative 3.0 or higher
• 26 student-athletes earned a 4.0 GPA

What was the entire graduating class average GPA?
What percentage of the graduating class as a whole had a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher?
Just curious how the student-athletes measure against the student body in general.  I'd say getting a 4.0 GPA while spending a significant amount of time on a sport is very impressive.  Even if they did get a business degree. jocolor
