SJSU APR Scores Continue Trending Higher
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention, and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. The 2012 report covers the 2008 through 2011 academic years.
"Our APR progress, improvement and positive results continue. It's a tribute to our student-athletes, coaches, academic advisers and tutors, and the university faculty and administration that we are reporting our best scores in many cases," says Marie Tuite, San Jose State University's interim director of athletics.
