RISE Educational Systems, Inc.
RISE Educational Systems pre-embeds affective & cognitive options within each classroom component to allow fast & slow learners to find comfort and success within heterogeneous classrooms. 
 
Student-Centered Adaptable Learning Environments (SCALE) work for both teachers and students, offering the teacher semblance of a class while students perceive individualization. 

Choice, control and technology are the vectors of improved student outcomes.   
RISE's mission is to improve learning equity in public schools within heterogeneous classrooms through research events and grants.  When students enter our classrooms, what we are really asking them is "Can you learn in a particular time interval?" The most common classroom intervals today are the 45-50 minute traditional and the 90 minute block.  Not all students will be able to learn in either of these time intervals.  However, this will often be hidden from educators due to our common practice of taking the average on assessment data, rather than the mode(s) where inadequacies would readily come to light. 

SCALE draws perspective from other well known learning theories:      
                                                    * Cognitive Load Theory (CLT)
                                                    * Social Development Theory's Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD)
                                                    * Expectancy Theory (VIE)
                                                    * Self-Efficacy Theory (SET),

These theories are brought together to enhance both cognitive and affective aspects important to learning progression in students, to address overall classroom diversity level, as well as the daily fluctuation of the individual level.  More students thereby engage in a proposed 5-step SCALE Learning Progression to produce significantly better achievement results.
