    100% is the most, or highest.


    You can get 100% on a test.

    or

    You can show 100% effort.

    The teacher wants to see if everyone can get the very best score in the lesson - or - show the most effort possible!

    The teacher is being encouraging and hoping that everyone does very well. To get 100% is to get it all. If a test is being given, then everyone would answer everything correctly and receive a grade of 100 with no deductions for making mistakes.

    Another saying is "to give 100%", which means to try or do your best, an all out effort.
