A “2 for 1” Product

Why stop at RISE alone when the same system can support direct assessment of student learning? RISE Above with rGrade!

rGrade is our comprehensive assessment platform that serves both short-and long-term assessment needs for a school or district. We’ve been making rGrade for 8 years to support assessment of student learning for instructional support and program reporting. RISE evaluation is a natural evolution of our highly configurable rGrade platform. Our approach to RISE is to help schools and districts tend to their RISE reporting needs but using a platform that has long-term potential beyond merely RISE. RISE Above!

Our rGrade and RISE Systems:
rGrade K-12™ is our comprehensive solution for student assessment and classroom data dashboards. The RISE module can be added to that or purchased separately.
rGrade™ RISE is a solution that just includes the RISE module for teacher evaluation.
rGrade K-12™ + RISE = RISE above with our comprehensive solution for teacher evaluation AND student assessment and classroom data dashboards.
