School Setup for Schoology Administrators

Trial vs Pilot

Trial

A free trial is offered to all new teachers who sign up for a JoeZoo App teacher account within Schoology. The trial allows teachers to get familiar with the app including its many assessment features. The free trial is ideal for individual teachers who want to free up assessment time and automate parts of assessment in order to focus on higher order feedback. Teachers who sign up for the trial may be one of the first people at their schools to try it offering them a chance to test it out before requesting a pilot. Alternatively, teachers may be sent a free trial invitation from their administrator to get a head start on using JoeZoo prior to a pilot starting.

Pilot

A pilot can be requested by teachers and/or administrators through the JoeZoo App within Schoology (see steps below). Pilots are conducted school-wide or district-wide and provide schools/districts with data and insights the free trial does not. Pilots ensure staff have resources, hands-on training, and priority support readily available. Spots for school pilots are limited, so requesting a pilot does not necessarily guarantee a spot. Schools and districts must first receive confirmation from JoeZoo.

Pilot Request

Administrators who are interested in a JoeZoo School or District PRO Pilot can request one after registering for a JoeZoo Administrator Account, using the following steps:
  1. Navigate to the App Center icon (four squares) located in the top navigation bar 
  2. Click "JoeZoo App" in the drop-down menu 
  3. Choose from Option A or Option B below to request a pilot

Option A

  1. Click "Start School Pilot - FREE" on the JoeZoo App Home Page
  2. Fill out the pilot request form 
  3. Click "Request Pilot"

Option B

  1. Click the Feature Packages (rocket ship) icon in the top right
  2. Select "Request Pilot" under the package type
  3. Fill out the pilot request form
Administrators will receive a confirmation email that the request was submitted and a reply from the JoeZoo team 1 business day later to follow up with next steps.

Inviting Faculty 

Administrators can easily track the registration of faculty members through the Faculty List. Administrators can invite teachers to the pilot (once it has been confirmed by JoeZoo) by contacting their designated Pilot Implementation Coach at JoeZoo or invite teachers to the free trial in the faculty list within the JoeZoo App.

Pilot Invite 

Administrators can invite faculty to a school-wide or district-wide JoeZoo pilot (once it has been confirmed by JoeZoo) by contacting their designated Pilot Implementation Specialist at JoeZoo, who will then turn the pilot on for the assigned teachers. 

Once the school or district pilot is turned on, each faculty member will receive an invite via Schoology's in-app messaging. Teachers can join the pilot with the click of one button using the steps in this resource.

Trial Invite

Administrators can send a Schoology's in-app message inviting faculty to a free trial of the JoeZoo app using the following steps:
  1. Navigate to the App Center icon (four squares) located in the top navigation bar 
  2. Click "JoeZoo App" in the drop-down menu 
  3. Scroll down to the Faculty List
  4. Click the down-facing arrow on the right side of the list to expand it
  5. Locate the faculty member(s) to send an invite to
  6. Click "Invite" or "Re-Invite"
