Customizing RISE Above

The RISE evaluation, as developed by the Indiana Department of Education, isn’t a perfect fit for every school district across the state.

Many districts have modified, changed, removed or added sections to the RISE to make their own flavor of evaluation.

RISE Above is flexible and can be tailored to each school district’s needs.

Modifications can include but certainly are not limited to:

  • changing questions to match a district’s unique rubric
  • adding extra instructions or explanations for teachers
  • adding district definitions of specific language on the rubric
  • reorganizing, adding or removing specific sections of the data entry section
  • displaying evidence reports in a unique way

When a school district purchases RISE Above for all of its certified staff, these customizations are done at no charge.
