NCAA APR scores: Big Ten teams continue to shine

The NCAA released Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores Wednesday, and all Big Ten teams avoided penalties. Northwestern led the Big Ten in football (991), while Indiana men’s basketball was perfect for the fourth straight year (1,000). The APR, which debuted in 2005, attempts to measure how teams perform in the classroom by using academic eligibility and retention and graduation rates to yield the four-year figure.
