Specific Rules About Digital Notebooks

What are the rules about Digital Notebooks?
How does it work with signatures?
How is it submitted?
Can it be printed?
Will digital submissions be treated differently for marking?
Does anyone know where I can find awnsers?

Look through the Vex judges guide and see if you can find answers to some of your questions there.


I couldn’t find anything. My team is doing a remote notebook this year on google slides because of other clubs (We don’t have time to meet until early November), we are taking the classes and need to do the online journal. I couldn’t find anything on online journals here. I probably missed something though, would you please point me in that direction if you could?

Then I would look again. The judging rubrics in particular should help you with this one.

I found it. Page 38 I think, someone closed my computer and lost my progress.

Great to here. Feel free to lets me know if you have any other related questions and I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.


I do have one question, I know how to see if it is in digital notebook format online, but where on robotevents will that be said? I am in Upstate SC and will be going to competitions in Clemson, Sevier, Pickens, and Greenville. Thanks!

If you go to robot events and look up a specific tournament, then click on “judging format” on the information page (for example our River bots IQ Signature event RiverBots VIQC Signature Event; Monroe, MI : Robot Events) and it will tell you all you need to know. If you need even more information, send the EP a message and they will be glad to answer any questions.


If you look on the first page of each event you should see something like this:

Grade Level: All
Skills Challenge Offered: Yes
Judging Format: All In-Person Judging

That lets you know how they will be doing that. Most EP’s will also put notes in one of the other areas (I use agenda) to say how they will handle judging (ie, notebooks to be submitted electronically by 5PM on the Monday before the event) Robotevents has this cool way for you to submit links to your notebooks to make it easy for the EP to collect all the links. One of the EP’s from Widener built a Google Sheet that the links drop into to make it easy for the judges to score.
