    Smile Hr. Pts.

    Hello. I'm wondering what "Hr. Pts." stands for on a report card. Thank you.

    For example:

    Sem. -> Cr. Att: 18+ 0 Cr. Comp.: 11+ 0 Hr. Pts.:28.5 SPA:1.58
    Aft.Sem. -> Cr. Att: 18+ 0 Cr. Comp.: 11+ 0 Hr. Pts.:28.5 GPA:1.58


    And also, would you please check these below?
    Cr. Att -> Credit Attained(Credit enrolled) Cr. Comp.-> Credit completed SPA: Semester Point Average GPA: Grade Point Average

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    On what sort of report card did you find these? Which country does the report card originate from?

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    Sorry not to cite the source first. It is from a book, <Dare to Disappoint> by Ozge Samanci.

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    I assume from the name of the author that it is a Turkish book. However, the page seems to refer to the American education system. We don't use "GPA" in the UK.

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    Right. The author is a Turk. She studied at a university in Istunbal. The university modeled itself on the American education system.

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    I would guess Hr. Pts. stands for "Honor Points," which could be points a student accumulates towards receiving an award.

    American report cards vary not only by state, but in most states, by local school district. Private schools establish their own reporting systems. I had never heard of honor points till your post, but a little googling found at least one high school that uses them.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    I was going to guess "honor points" as well. Used to calculate who is named to the "honor roll."

    Re: Hr. Pts.

    Cr Att is Credits attempted.
    There were 18 credits on the schedule, but she failed two classes worth 7 credits.
    Cr Comp would be credits completed. She completed only 11 credits.

    I'm not familiar with grades like "BB or CB" - I guess that like B+ or B-, but I'm not sure.

    Typically you get 4 points for an A, 3 for a B, 2 for a C, 1 for D and 0 for an F.
    "AA" might be more than 4 and a "CB" must be somewhere between 2 and 3, but I don't know.

    But anyway, if you multiply the grade "points" by the number of hours using my round numbers, you get:
    9+0+0+4+9+8 = 30

    I'm assuming then that the Hr Pts of 28.5, which is close to this 30, must be something like "Hour Points" - your grade x the number of hours the class meets each week.

    Then you divide these points 28.5 by the credits attempted (18) to get the grade point average of 1.58.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
