I, too, use lab notebooks. It was a requirement at my previous school, and I was skeptical of the grading time. However, I also found it to be much less time consuming because all of the students' notebooks are organized the same way. I also look for specific parts of the labs to grade. The majority of the labs are valued at 30 points with 5 of the points being the conclusion. I have found it helpful to make sure that the students relate the lab to the learning objectives in their conclusions. This gives me a good idea if they were really paying attention to what was going on in the lab.

I have always made it a requirement that the students purchase their own lab journals; however, this has always been for chemistry. I never had any problems with the students not getting them on their own.
This year, I am also teaching a biology class using the BSCS Human Approach which requires lab journals. The class is a lower/middle level class, so the school is purchasing them for the students. The money for the journals comes out of their lab fees. I had Wal-Mart hold the number that I needed, and I was able to purchase them for 50 cents each.
