Which of the following is the term used to describe the propagation of the action potential along the axon of a neuron?

A Saltatory conduction.

The myelin sheath of the axon has bare portions that are unmyelinated. These portions are called Nodes of Ranvier. When an action potential spreads down an axon, the electrical impulse "jumps" from node to node. This movement of the action potential along the axon is called saltatory conduction.
