INDIANAPOLIS -- The Rating Percentage Index (RPI) has been used by the NCAA since 1984 to supplement the selection of at-large teams and the seeding of all teams for the NCAA women's basketball tournament. This is the official list of rankings, as released by the NCAA.

It is derived from three component factors: Div. I winning percentage (25%), schedule strength (50%); and opponent's schedule strength (25%). Games against non-Division I opponents are not used in calculating the RPI. The NCAA provides only rankings without calculations:
