A major focus of the stellar science panel of the Astro2010 Decadal Survey for investigation over this past decade has been "How do rotation and magnetic fields affect stars?" because understanding magnetic fields is essential for understanding low mass stars and the planets that orbit them. This talk describes an ongoing project whose aim is to measure the spatial distribution and time evolution of small-scale magnetic starspots on a sample of stars with a range of masses and rotation rates.
