Mount Vernon Teaching and Learning 

Your teaching and learning guide to help our students foster growth and confidence as learners and people in society.


Evidence Based Reporting measures a student’s mastery of the essential standards and targets for a class, or how well a student understands the material in class.

The goal of an evidence-based approach is to provide the teacher, student, and parent as accurate a picture as possible of the student’s learning and to encourage a dialogue about how the student can master the material for the class. 

The purpose of Evidence-Based Reporting is to ensure that a student’s grade is reflective of his or her learning based on our courses’ learning expectations.
