Education / Pedagogy
Portuguese term or phrase: aproveitamento
"Aproveitamento, com equivalência formal, das atividades acadêmicas desenvolvidas nas instituições..."

I know this term was already asked a couple of times, but I don't think the solutions proposed fit this context.
Many thanks in advance. :-)

performance


Explanation:
I think only "performance" is more correct, as "aproveitamento positivo" means positive performance, but "aproveitamento negativo", means negative performance.
