Comment Sets for G Suite Teachers


User: G Suite Teachers 

Pre-loaded Comment Set vs New Comment Set

Pre-loaded Comment Set (Teacher Use)

JoeZoo provides a master set of comments (Teacher Comment Set) containing the most frequently used comments that teachers can use and customize when assessing students’ written assignments. Comments are organized by categories and colour-coded for teachers and students. By default, this master set of comments is always attached to assignments for teachers to use.

New Comment Set (Student Use)

Teachers should only create a new comment set if distributing it to students to use for self-assessment and peer-assessment. The new comment set, specifically for student use, should focus on things students should know and are working towards. Teachers can connect the new comment set during the creating or editing of an assignment using the Assignment Builder under “Student Comment Set”.


Editing Comment Sets 

Comment Statuses

The green status bar at the bottom of a comment set tile means the comment has not been connected to an assignment or used for grading yet. This comment set can be edited and then connected to a specific assignment.



The red status bar at the bottom of a comment set tile means the comment set has been connected to an assignment and may have been used for grading (by yourself or your students) already.
