Journal of Instructional Research, v2 p3-9 2013
Students' perceptions of journaling are examined with the hypothesis that students perceive reflective journaling as a beneficial tool that aids in their overall success in their courses. Students completed seven, one-page journals throughout the semester. A content analysis of the final journal reveals that students enjoy the process of journaling, find journaling helpful and beneficial, and state journaling aids in life application of course material. Results suggest journaling may be received well by students and assist them in the classroom; further exploration of journaling is warranted.
