These interactions have been written by Psychometric experts and reviewed by Education Psychologists.
Does Heartbeat ask questions that prompt a mandatory report?
No. All of the interactions in Heartbeat have been assigned severity levels. Anything that would require a report sits firmly in what we call "severity 1." Although we see the benefit in helping students understand and process these types of interactions we are not currently asking them. If you would like more information regarding interaction severity please reach out to us.
