We've added a simplified, 2-question version of our wellness check-in, with a focus on emotional and physical wellbeing. With fewer questions and emoji options to select than the 5-question version, this assessment is designed to make it easier for younger students to get in Rhithm.
What's included in the check-in?
Students will be prompted with the following two questions during their check-in:
What are you feeling today?
How is your body feeling today?
Students will see the following emoji responses for each question:
Colors shown around each emoji indicate where on the regulation spectrum each answer falls. For example, "Sad" indicates very low energy and "Angry" indicates very high energy.

Launching or scheduling a live session
Teachers and administrators can use the simplified wellness check-in when starting a live session from your dashboard or when scheduling a session in advance.
After selecting which students, classes, or groups you'd like to get in Rhithm, use the drop-down menu to select "Get in Rhithm - Simple - 2 Questions" then click Okay.
Similarly, when scheduling a session in advance, choose "Get in Rhithm - Simple - 2 Questions" from the dropdown menu after clicking "+Schedule".
Changing students' default assessment
As a campus or district administrator, you have the ability to make an assessment the default assessment for certain grades, classes, schools, or students.
❗ Note: The "default" assessment for a student is the assessment that will launch when a student chooses "Get Myself in Rhithm." Teachers and administrators will still be able to select other assessments when launching or scheduling a live session.
From your dashboard, click the "Assessments" tab on the left-hand menu.
From the "Other assessments" tab, click Actions > Make default for next to the assessment titled "Get in Rhithm - Simple - 2 Questions".
From the popup window, you can select individual students, grades, classes, or groups for which to make this the default assessment. After you are finished, click "Save" in the bottom-right-hand corner.
At any time, you can access the settings above and deselect the checkbox next to a student or group's name in order to remove the default assessment settings.
