Assignment 4 – Zhiyan Zhong

The NCAA published data on its student athletes’ academic progress and graduation rates. I found it interesting to see how the graduation rates have varied among different sports and different genders. There are different methods to measure the graduation success of students at NCAA member institutions, but the following charts only show the Federal Graduation Rate. According to the NCAA, an institution’s Federal Graduation Rate cohort for a given academic year includes undergraduate students who enrolled in the fall of that academic year as first-time, full-time, baccalaureate-degree-seeking freshmen.
