Spanish term or phrase: índice de grado (vs. GPA) [Puerto Rico]
Estoy traduciendo unas notas de una universidad en Puerto Rico (Funiber) y aparece:

"Créditos aprobados: 66
Completó grado: Sí
GPA: 3.58
Nota: B
Índice de grado: 8.58"

No entiendo la diferencia entre GPA e índice de grado. Le escribí al secretario (registrador) de la universidad y me contestó que eran lo mismo. Cuando le indiqué que los valores eran diferentes, me contestó:

"El GPA se calcula por los puntos de honor y el Indice de Grado se calcula por la calificación (nota) de la asignatura."

Ahora entiendo menos aún. Jamás había escuchado hablar de puntos de honor. Encontré esta definición de otra universidad en Perto Rico:

Puntos de Honor Equivalencia numérica asignada a las notas. Se utiliza para calcular el índice académico.

En la tabla de calificaciones para cada materia hay GPA (en base a 4), nota (en letras) y calificación (nota en base a 10)

Ya calculé y el índice de grado no es un promedio (no ponderado) de las calificaciones en base a 10.

¿Alguien me podría sugerir una traducción para índice de grado si entiende la diferencia con el GPA? Mil gracias

Reference: grade point index?

Reference information:
Honor Points
Honor points are the numerical equivalents assigned to each letter grade. To determine the total honor points for a course, multiply the number of credits earned by the numerical honor point(s) assigned to the grade (e.g., a 4-credit course awarded an A equals 4 credits multiplied by 4 honor points equals 16 total honor points).
Semester Grade Point Index (GPI)
The grade point index for a semester is computed by dividing the total semester honor points earned at Boston University by the total semester credits of those subjects completed, with the following exceptions:

I don't understand your reference to Venezuela. The previous question was about Puerto Rico.

Asker: Gracias. Sí, esa consulta la hice yo, pero la definición venezolana no me cuadra con la del registrador (secretario) de Puerto Rico
