    Thank you for your kind words.  I was a bit bummed that JEs had a slightly higher drop rate than VLs, but I'm not able to tell now whether the longer term drops rates would have continued this pattern given COVID-19.  I hope to hear whether the upstream instructors notice a difference with MAT151 students who journaled.

    It was my assessment of the written answers on the final exam from last semester that prompted, in part, my exporatory analysis.  My exams from both semesters, I believe, had parts that would align with VLs and parts that would align with JEs.  I've thought about somehow repurposing the notes as perhaps a guide for JEs when watching VLs, but at this point, it's just a thought, and I like the creative nature of freeform JEs.  Some of the journals I've seen are amazing!  Thank you for your thought provoking questions and kind remarks.

    Thank You, for sharing and posting your results.  I use concept mapping in nursing and it is really beneficial to learning.  I have found students gain a better understanding of the topic being discussed and brings out critical thinking.

    Thank You,
