What does "point taker" mean in the following? Is it natural English?

Doing X is a point taker on most standardized tests.

I'd appreciate your help.


It can translate to:

Doing X will earn you points on most standardized tests.

Personally, I don't see it being used often but it's mostly used in the context of sport/game such as to refer to someone who is a goal-scorer.

"He is one of the best point takers in the team."
