APR numbers out — Huskies, all Pac-12 schools, escape penalties

Today marks the official release of the latest Academic Progress Rate numbers, which assess, well, academic progress and athlete retention.

As expected, Washington’s football program was safely above the 925 threshold when penalties can be assessed, checking in with a four-year APR of 946 (the more important number) and a single-year number for the 2009-10 academic year of 930 (here’s Washington’s official page and that for UW coach Steve Sarkisian).

That latter number is the lowest among Pac-12 schools but is certainly due in part to the attrition in the program incurred in the change in coaches from Tyrone Willingham to Sarkisian. UW has reported that its winter quarter 2011 grade point average of 2.76 was the highest for the football program since 2005. (And since I mentioned it yesterday, worth noting that the single-year number is below the 950 needed for Sarkisian to get a financial bonus). The single-year number was 934 for 2008-09.

But as noted above, the more important number, since it judges a longer period of time, is that assessing multi-year performance (that’s the one on which penalties are based). UW’s last four multi-year numbers are 948, 954, 948 and 946.

Interestingly, the overall four-year average for all Division-I football programs was also 946 (the overall average for all athletes is 970).

And it was a good year all around for the Pac-10 as no programs at any schools suffered penalties.

Here are the four-year numbers for all Pac-12 football programs (1000 is a perfect score):
Stanford, 977
Oregon State, 959
UCLA, 956
Utah, 956
USC, 952
Arizona, 951
Cal, 949
Washington, 946
Oregon, 941
Arizona State, 940
Colorado, 929
Washington State, 925

Here are the single-year numbers for the 2009-10 academic year:
Stanford, 977
UCLA, 969
Oregon State, 965
Utah, 960
Colorado, 958
Cal, 949
WSU, 944
Arizona, 942
Arizona State, 935
USC, 932
Oregon, 932
Washington, 930
