The knit decreases should definitely be a ssk at the beginning of the knit row and a k2tog at the end of the row.
Actually, they don't have to be. They can slant toward the edges rather than the center; this is called a 'fashion' or 'full fashion' decrease. I do it that way at times and it makes a firmer edge. The only thing is she should be consistent. So if she wants to do k2tog at the beg of the row and ssk at the end, then the WS row should match and be ssp at the beg and p2tog at the end.
