The 2011 report released by the NCAA features a four-year complication of AR data from the 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 academic years. The APR uses a series of formulas related to student-athlete retention and eligibility to measure the academic progress of all participants who receive grants-in-aid on every team at every NCAA Division I college and university.

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 both retention at institution and academic eligibility in its calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
