English term or phrase: Sharp Test
"Sharp Test Passsed" In a label within a School transcript. There is another label called "Topics Test Passed" under the following Section title: COMPETENCY TESTS
Meli Gonzlez
Spanish translation:Prueba de aptitud aprobada/superada
Explanation:
Tú mismo lo clarificas al explicar que hay dos pruebas:
la prueba de aptitud, "sharp test", y
la prueba de conocimientos, "topics test".
Son las dos caras complementarias de una
completa evaluación "competency tests"... no se trata sólo
de memorizar una serie de asuntos ("topics")
sino de tener capacidad, inteligencia
("sharpness" por decirlo suavemente) para
entender, asimilar esos temas.
Hay que recordar que se trata de utilizar un
término suave, indoloro... aptitud es lo bastante
ambiguo y un término escolar estándar al menos
en España.

Prueba Sharp


Explanation:
The context implies that this is the name of a test, not the type of test - if so, I would guess it to be named after a person.

Explanation:
I was unable to locate a test identified as 'the Sharp test' (I too believed it to be a surname).

However, would your context be audio or video? In which case check the web ref re. 'sharpness' below.

If not, more context would be required.
