A Comparison of Academic and Athletic Performance in the NCAA
Bailey, Sarah; Bhattacharyya, Mouchumi
College Student Journal, v51 n2 p173-182 Sum 2017
The Academic Progress Rate (APR) of 34 sports was investigated to determine whether the top athletic teams performed significantly better "academically" compared to their bottom counterparts. A "p" value of 0.0029 revealed that top athletic teams academically outperformed bottom athletic teams. Further analysis showed the number of times a school made the top eight positions did not influence their academic performance. An analysis comparing men's and women's top athletic teams also revealed women academically outperformed men.
