    A for effort or E for effort has nothing to do with spelling. "Old school" grades got confused with a newer, less objective system.

    Old School

    E - Excellent

    VG - Very Good

    G - Good

    S - Satisfactory

    F - Fail

    Modern terminology

    A - superior

    B - Above average

    C - Average

    D - Below average

    F - Fail

    Effort grades have little to do with academic ones. Effort means earnest attempt to achieve.

    A for effort and E for effort mean the same thing...superior or excellent attempt to learn.

    There is no E in the grading system. It is A for effort, but you rarely get an A for effort either.

    A for effort.

    The average american middle school report card uses the grades A B C D and F. And in elementary school they will grade you for effort but if you have noticed in older cartoons and so they use A B C D and F even for elementary schoolers so therefore giving you a A for effort.

    'A' for effort, because it's not a reference to the phonetics of the word "effort," but rather the achievement.

    huh? i thought effort grading was based on A to E?

    A* excellent

    A very good

    B good

    C pass

    D satisfactory

    E do some work.

    well i'm not sure if thats what they officially stand for but the letters stand for worse grades as you go on.

    ^ Yeah, we never had Fs in my school system. A failing grade was an E.
