On initial impression, I thought this article was a bit heavy on the literature review and sampling. However, the concept is a simple one. For me at least, it is something I have known about from my days as a composition teacher, just applied to IL. The article does provide a good description of how to set up the journals and the criteria for evaluation, allowing for replication. The idea is to use reflective journals to provide a more authentic form of assessment.
