Schoology FAQ: What is JoeZoo?

What is JoeZoo?

JoeZoo, a Schoology integrated app for teachers and students in all courses from Grade 3-12, makes teacher, self and peer assessment of low and high-stakes written coursework more engaging for and driven by students, hours faster for teachers and provides districts with their first year-round source of actionable writing skills data, for every student, from all their classes.

JoeZoo uses Artificial Intelligence to provide feedback efficacy analytics (in real-time), automates 21st Century Skill building for students, and reduces teacher feedback and grading efforts by 50%.

Teachers can save assessment time, while receiving actionable insight that cannot be tracked with other apps such as peer-to-peer plagiarism, feedback engagement, feedback initiative, using the JoeZoo App. JoeZoo runs inside Schoology, so teachers never have to navigate outside of their LMS to assess and grade student work. 

Students receive actionable insight from JoeZoo to make improvements to their work and build writing skills. Students will receive differentiated feedback from JoeZoo, accommodating diverse learners, leading to increased and meaningful engagement that will improve the way students self-assess, peer assess, and engage with feedback.
