2011 Journal of College Teaching & Learning (TLC)  
The Team Activity Diary (TAD) is designed to prevent social loafing on the team project. This paper describes the TAD and reports on students' perceptions of it. Although students appeared fairly indifferent to the TAD, 25% of the students indicated that it increased their contributions to the team project. Moreover, 16% of the students felt the TAD increased the contributions from some of their teammates. The authors present recommendations for use of the TAD and offer suggestions for future researchers.
