Research-Informed Instruction for Success and Equity

Research-Informed Instruction for Success and Equity (RIISE) was developed in response to data showing that NJ pre-service teacher programs are not teaching the Science of Reading, as put forth by the National Reading Panel, The Reading League, and the International Dyslexia Association. 

RIISE graduates will be fully prepared to pass the nationally administered Knowledge and Practice Exam for Effective Reading Instruction (KPEERI), which measures an educator’s knowledge of the principles and practices of Structured Literacy™. By passing the KPEERI exam, a RIISE graduate will earn their national certification as a Structured Literacy Practitioner.
