Mocs Continue to Show Improvement in APR Numbers

The NCAA released updated Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores today, and the Chattanooga Mocs continued to show improvement in their performance in the classroom.  Nine programs had a perfect single-year score of 1000 and all 17 were above the NCAA requirement of 900. 

Single-year scores released today were from the 2011-12 academic year, while the four-year scores encompassed the 2008-09 through 2011-12 cohorts. 

“Our student-athletes, coaches and support staff have done an excellent job getting to this point concerning our APR performance,” stated UTC Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn.  “We need to continue to provide the support necessary to make sure all of our programs are well above the NCAA requirements."   

The NCAA will increase its four-year minimum score from a 900 to a 930 next year.  With that in mind, UTC set a minimum score of 950 as its internal goal for all sports.  Currently, 12 of the 17 sports at UTC are above the 950 goal and only one is below a 930.     

This is the second year in a row all Mocs teams have been penalty free from the APR requirements.  After receiving a postseason ban in football in 2009 due to poor APR scores, the UTC Athletics Department developed and implemented an improvement plan that is currently showing tremendous progress. 

Football posted a single-year score of 966 and increased its four-year total to 936.  Men’s golf had a four-year score of 1000 for the second straight year, while men’s cross country was also recognized by the NCAA last week for its multi-year average of 1000.  Men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track & field also had a single-year score of 1000, along with soccer and women’s tennis.

According to the NCAA, the APR provides a real-time "snapshot" of a team's academic success each semester by assessing the current academic progress of every student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility and retention as factors in the calculation and provides a much clearer picture of the current academic culture in each sport.

The soccer team saw the largest jump in its multi-year score, going from a 915 in the previous data released in 2012 to a current four-year score of 947.  Men’s cross country increased 24 points to get to its 1000, while men’s indoor and outdoor track each saw an increase of 22 points to a 968.

Below are the single-year APR scores and the four-year scores for each program at Chattanooga.
