Traditionally, teachers spend a lot of time using multiple apps, mediums (online and print) and steps to manage the assessment process. That results in the loss of a lot of teacher time and effort.
JoeZoo believes that teacher time is very valuable, so we made ours an all-in-one app.
It contains every tool that teachers and students need for both formative and summative assessments.
Rubric Builder - use our interactive builder to create re-usable and shareable rubrics for grading inside Google apps within a few minutes
Comment Set Builder - use our preloaded comment sets or build your own to give formative feedback for any subject or grade level
Writing Checker - use our Monkey Checker to automatically highlight spelling, grammar and mechanics errors so you can free your time for higher order feedback
Text-to-Speech Commenting Tool - our text comments are faster than Google's, can be listened to as well as read by students and provide teachers with engagement analytics in real-time
Voice Commenting Tool - teachers can record personalized voice comments to save time and increase student engagement
Grading Tool - our app let's you grade with a few clicks and record Voice Messages for students, right inside Google Docs, no need to print student docs to grade them by hand
Insight & Improvement Features
By using JoeZoo, everyone - teachers, students, parents and schools - can gain access to insights about how each student learns and proof of the learning skills their building from assignment to assignment, across all their classes.
