Team scores are calculated by giving each athlete one point per semester for remaining academically eligible and another point per semester for remaining enrolled or graduating, with a four-point maximum per individual per academic year.

Pitt had 14 of its 17 programs perform at or above the national average in the 2015-16 academic year, including the softball, women's tennis and women's cross country teams that posted a ideal 1000.

The women's basketball team had an impressive 989 multi-year score and won the NCAA national championship in each of the four seasons.

The metric has been often criticized for targeting lower resource schools, however. Twelve Ole Miss teams also exceeded the 981 threshold in 2015-16. "Our expectation is to have each of our programs above the national average and we will continue to work towards that goal".

On May 3, Wyoming men's golf and women's tennis teams were recognized by the NCAA for ranking in the Top 10 percent of their respective sports' April scores.

Auburn's football program scored a 980, which is tied for second in the SEC behind Vanderbilt (992).

The FBS average was 966 with no teams subject to penalties. More than 7,500 competed in baseball, men's basketball, football and women's basketball - the highest-profile sports in college athletics.

Women's bowling had the lone flawless score of 1.000.

The K-State men's golf and women's cross country teams were awarded APR Public Recognition for the fourth straight year for posting multi-year scores in the top 10 percent of all teams in their sport. The football team posted a score of 968 (out of 1,000) and the men's basketball team scored 969. The 991 score from 2015-16 was the second-highest among all football programs in the Pac-12.

The baseball team's multiyear score of 997 had the next highest mark and the highest total in the Pac-12.

Ohio State women's ice hockey, cross country and tennis tied for the best multi-year April at 1,000.

At VMI, mixed rifle (988) and men's soccer (976) had the school's top scores. Women's basketball posted its third consecutive ideal 1,000 single-year rate, for the first time in program history. The four-year running tally is one point lower than last year's mark, but UCLA's 2015-16 score of 973 improved 10 points from the previous year.
