My 8th grade industrial arts instructor would smack you with a rule, if you called it a ruler....

One of my teachers had the habit of using the edge of a 15" ruler to hit the knuckles of a student who had the gaul to use their left hand to write, She also had a long brown habit which she wore every day and I don't think it was ever washed cause it was a stinky habit.

As I use a scale rule every day, I was very careful when I used the word 'ruler' as I knew it would be picked on whatever I called it.
If somebody could direct me to any information that disproves that 'ruler' is as correct if not more so than both 'scale' or 'rule', I will stand corrected. :o)

All I can dig up is-
rule vs ruler, one just measures and the other is a straightedge that may measure (not so sure), one has the measuring marks starting at the end and the other has the marks starting inside the edge (seems more likely).
I think 'scale' could apply to either, just meaning it is used to translate from one scale to another (real/scale, scale 1 to scale 2)

A "ruler" is that plastic or wood thing they made us buy in elementary school, usually a foot long, with a straight edge, and calibrations, typically in inches and fractions, and sometimes centimeters as an afterthought. ;-)

The Online Etymology Dictionary (and other sources) specify that a 'ruler' is a strip for making straight (or 'ruled') lines (parenthesis mine)...so traditionally a 'ruler' was a straightedge, while a 'scale' is a device with lines for measuring distance. The thing we use in school is technically a 'scale ruler', however everyone just calls it a ruler.
