German translation:Notendurchschnitt
Explanation:
GPA - grade point average
An A counts for 4 points, a B for 3, a C for 2, and a D for 1 point. The grade points are then averaged to arrive at the GPA.
In German, that would be the Notendurchschnitt.

Notendurchschnitt 2 (gut)


Explanation:
As another respondent suggested, the US grading system (A-D + F), doesn't align perfectly with the German(1-6). It is generally much harder to achieve a 1 in the German system than an A in the U.S.--a German 1 would be the equivalent of 100% or an A+ in most US schools. So I'd be hesitant to consider anything lower than a GPA of 4.0 as the equivalent of the German 1.

Explanation:
GPA=grade point average - Notendurchschnitt

1. I believe that your GPA has to do with ProZ.com, with (4) being the "ceiling" a KudoZ answerer, graded by his/her peers, can reach.

This is a quote from an explanation given by the founder of ProZ:

"The average of the peer grades your KudoZ answers have received is your GPA.
(GPA stand for "grade point average.") Until you have received 5 grades, from
at least three different people, you will not have a GPA on record.

Two of the purposes for peer grades:
- To help the asker decide which answer is best
- To provide answerers with more feedback

Two of the purposes for GPA:
- To serve as one more means of qualifying translators
- To encourage a high-level of professionalism in answers

The average of all peer grades is 2.76. Over 22,000 peer grades have been cast,
and 650 ProZ members have been peer graded enough to have a GPA (Source: Henry)"

For the time being, GPA's are not active.
