            What is JoeZoo

            JoeZoo  is a 'smart' assessment technology, powered by  Machine Learning , a form of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

            It turns data - from assessments, teacher feedback and student usage of feedback - into automated improvement prompts to help students build  21st Century Skills  (also known as  Essential Skills  or  Global Competencies ), all while reducing teacher feedback and grading efforts by 80%.

            JoeZoo is seamlessly integrated with the following Google apps:
            1. Google Docs  - offering every tool to give feedback and grade without having to leave Google Docs
