ummm, how exactly do you measure effort??Prof: "So Tim did you really really try on this essay?"Tim: "Oh yeah totally. I was like thinking about it all the time. I barely had time to get my part on you know?"Prof: "That's an A for effort!"
You can't measure effort; therefore, everyone has made one; therefore, everyone starts with an A in the category that makes up sixty percent of their grade; therefore, everyone does well in every class.It's a way of banning Ds and Fs, and curtailing Cs, without banning Ds and Fs or curtailing Cs. It's a backdoor guarantee of a 3.0 or higher just for signing your tuition check.
