I disagree with the instructor of that class.  A typical residence at 30 tall.   Ta = .02 x 30^.75 = .25 sec
 
                                                                                                               f= 1/.25  = 4 hz
                                                                                                   therefore Rigid per definitionin ASCE-07
 
Rigid for Wind and Rigid roof and floor Diaphragms are totally different and he is probably confusing the issue.
