In an investigation of the starspot hypothesis as it applies to the ‘slowly variable’ F-type dwarfs, we spectroscopically observed eight promising γ Doradus candidates to search for Ca ii H&K emission. We found that there are no significant emission reversals in the cores of these resonance lines. Based on the ceiling flux calculations of the Ca ii K line and on calculations of the Rossby number, we conclude that there is no support for the presence of strong magnetic activity and the starspot hypothesis in these objects.
