How do I check in as a student?

This article is intended for Students.

A Pulse check-in is quick and easy to do. You can do it on your phone, tablet or a computer. If you tap or click the ‘Sound’ button, Pulse will read out the question and options to you.

Pulse can ask you three types of questions:

Note: Select a language

Students in the US Region will have the option to change the language to Spanish. Select your preferred language on the language selector on the top-right of the screen.

Wellbeing question

The first question we ask is always, “How are you feeling today?” Your school will be able to see your answer. Based on your answer, Pulse will ask you more questions or ask if you want to talk to a trusted staff member.

  • If you choose I’m feeling great, I’m feeling positive, I’m feeling in the middle, or I'm feeling negative, Pulse will ask you more questions.
  • If you choose I need some help, Pulse will ask if you want to talk to a teacher, counselor or another adult at your school that you trust.

    You can choose who you'd like to ask for help by selecting their name then selecting Send. Pulse will send you an email or alert on your phone when the staff member has seen your message.

Experience questions

Next, Pulse will ask you five more questions. These Experience questions ask about how you feel about school and life in general. Your school can see how you answered, but they won’t be able to see who answered which questions.

Each question has five responses you can pick from, from super-green (most positive) to red (most negative).

Share Gratitude

Lastly, you'll be able to express and share gratitude. Your school will see what kind of gratitude you sent, but only the person you share gratitude with will see it.

Pulse will ask What are you grateful for today? and give you a list of options. You can pick one of them.

After you pick an option, you can send gratitude to another student or staff member, or ask Pulse to help you pick someone.

If you know who you want to give gratitude to:

  1. Pick Share with a peer (another student) or Share with a staff member (an adult).
  2. Start typing in their first name. If their name is longer than 5 letters, you'll need to type at least 5 letters to search.
  3. Select the correct person from the list, then pick what kind of gratitude you want to give them. You can also choose Just Say Thanks.

    Tip

    You can add a GIF to your message by selecting the GIF window.

  4. Select Send to let them know you appreciate them!

If you don’t know who you want to give gratitude to:

  1. Pick Surprise Me.
  2. Pulse will suggest three people you might want to give gratitude to. Pick one from the list of suggestions.
  3. Pick what kind of gratitude you want to give them, or pick Just Say Thanks.

    Tip

    You can add a GIF to your message by selecting the GIF window.

  4. Select Send to let them know you appreciate them!

The check-in will end after you send your gratitude message. You can log out or read the gratitude messages you’ve received from your peers. To work your way through the stack of gratitude cards, select OKAY.
