In this article we show teachers how they can distribute a rubric to students before they write their assignment.
2 Distribution Options
With JoeZoo, teachers have 2 ways to distribute rubrics to students.
Option #1 - Connect to Assignment
With this option, a teacher connects a rubric they've built with JoeZoo to an assignment they've added to JoeZoo.
On connection, this rubric is instantly available to all students inside their JoeZoo Express add-on. They can now click the "Grading" button on their home screen to grade their own doc or that of a peer.
If a teacher does not connect a rubric to an assignment, students will be unable to grade their own or a peer's doc and will be prompted to ask their teacher to do so if they click the "Grading" button on their add-on's home screen.
Option #2 - Insert in Doc
If a teacher prefers to distribute rubrics in a Google Doc file, JoeZoo makes it easy.
Clicking the "Insert Rubric" button on the home screen will let a teacher select a rubric they've created with JoeZoo and instantly insert it into the Google Doc they are viewing.
Teachers can then choose to add that Google Doc with rubric to a Google Classroom assignment record or any other preferred method to distribute it to students.
