The IHSAA began using RPI in 2018 to determine its at-large playoff qualifiers. Below is an explanation of the system. District champions across all six classifications receive automatic qualification into the playoffs, but they know use a Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) formula for the remaining at-large bids to make a 16-team playoff.

RPI will be determined by a team’s overall win-loss percentage (accounting for 37.5 recent of the index), a team’s opponent’s win-loss percentage (37.5 percent) and a team’s opponent’ opponent’s win-loss percentage (25 percent). Classification differences between non-district opponents will not affect RPI.
