Many students fail to make the connection between effort and success. Do yours? Use these individual Effort Gauges to help students delineate and keep track of the effort needed to succeed in any content area! The Effort Gauge is a concrete visual designed to help students make the connection between effort, progress, and success. The teacher or student can write the desired goal in the space at the top of the sheet. Required efforts - assignments, activities, attitudes, or behaviors - can be marked by the teacher or student along the column on the lines above the bulb. The student colors in progress toward the goal as the required effort is made. The level of a student's success can be measured against the amount of student effort recorded on the Effort Gauge making the connection between effort and success evident!
