The explantion of APR is as follows:
"To calculate the APR, every student-athlete is tracked by eligibility and retention, the two most reliable factors in predicting graduation. Those who do well in the classroom and stay in school earn two points. Those who pass but do not return to school earn one point. If a student-athlete fails academically and leaves school, their team loses two points. If a student-athlete returns to school later and graduates, the school earns one bonus point. The team's APR is calculated by dividing the total points earned in a year by the total points possible."
"The NCAA annually calculates an APR for every team at every Division I school, using data collected over a rolling four-year period. Teams can receive two points per player, one for retaining the athlete in school and another if the athlete makes successful progress toward a degree that year."
"The Jayhawks have the top Academic Progress Rate scores of any of the 65 teams participating in the tournament.....The KU menís basketball team has an APR of 1,000, using data from 2004-08, according to a study done annually among the menís basketball tournament teams."
Off the top of my head, the following players did not graduate from ku during that period:
"Those who pass but do not return to school earn one point."
Wouldn't that under the best case describe the players I listed?
"The team's APR is calculated by dividing the total points earned in a year by the total points possible."
If two points are possible and ku has a bunch of 1's, how does that result in a perfect score?
