(there’s a TLDR at the bottom of this btw)
Hey guys. So nobody else on my team has done notebooking in the past, so I’m going to reach out to the forums for advice on this. So I know in past seasons there has been a 3 point bonus on the judge’s notebook rubric for engineering notebooks that are bound (meaning not printed out or put in a binder or something.) Well what if I typed up pages, sized them to the page size of the VEX bound notebooks and either glued or taped them in? Would that make up for it being typed? Because I know some judges just see typed anything and score it less but some may see the thought put into it; you can tell when I made the page because I can’t rip out pages or change the order if I glue typed pages into a bound notebook. This seems like it would be a loophole for not having to hand write all my pages. The reason I’m avoiding this is because for the first half of the season I’ll be away from my team for a lot of their build time due to my other extracurriculars. It would be a massive benefit for me not to have to do it all by hand.
TLDR: Do you think it would be possible to get the 3 point bonus on the notebooking rubric by taping or gluing typed notebook pages onto pages of the VEX bound notebook (and dating each page to show the progression throughout the season)?
