Case Study Requirements
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ANALYZE THE CASE BASE ON YOUR AGREEMENT OR DISAGREEMENT WITH THE CONTENT. WHATEVER YOUR POSITION IS, YOU MUST SUPPORT YOUR ANALYSIS WITH INFORMATION FROM THE E-TEXT AND FROM AN ACADEMIC ARTICLE.
- Analyze the case completely using the information in the case and information in the various chapters in the e-Text. Your analysis should not be a short response to the case. Rather, it should be a more detailed write up. This is where you demonstrate how much you understand the material. The grade for this case depends heavily on how you respond to the issues and or problems shown in the case. Include historical/current/comparative information provided in the case, analysis of key elements or factors affecting the issue etc.
A summary of the evaluation criteria:
- The written papers will be judged on both the quality of the content (i.e., that you respond directly and correctly to the issues in the case and that you communicate in a clear and concise way what is important in the case) and on the quality of the composition (i.e., grammar, word usage, organization, etc.).
- You must do your own work to enable you learn from the case study. Use of someone else’s work – either professional work or another student’s work – will mean an “F” for the case study, and possibly for the course.
- Use Berkeley College’s guidelines for written papers, including APA citation format.
Conclusion (2-3 paragraphs): A brief summary of the situation and why you responded the way you did, what could have been done differently etc.
