CASE STUDIES

(The criteria listed below will be strictly adhered to in grading the case studies)

The expectations by the instructor for providing answers to the questions for the case studies is that there be clear evidence of supporting data or research in answering each of the questions. Simple “Yes” or “No” answers or one and two sentence responses to the questions would not allow for much credit being given for the question. You should include as much supporting information and knowledge that you can, when answering each question. We find that the reason that most Case Studies are docked points is because there was not enough supporting information written or supplied about the question. When sources are not listed, the Case Study submission is automatically deducted points. There are significant points rewarded for the successful submission of each Case Study. For this reason it must be quite evident that there is given sufficient evidence of research and knowledge of the solutions provided for each question. Be very sure that you are including as much supporting data and research that you can. Do not assume anything that the reader may know. In your answers be sure that give ample proof to the instructor that you know the material well. By including as much as you can in your answers you also give proof of your research. The case studies are intended to make you think and analyze and so may take significant time to perform. This amount of time that you invest in your conclusions can best be shown by the amount of supporting material you include in your answers. To be considered for full credit answers provided must be at least 5-6 sentences long.

When case studies are graded the following criteria for determining points is used:

5 POINTS *Have answered the questions and given correct answers only to at least 50% of the questions, with little or no supporting data or research  (5 points)

9 POINTS *Have answered all of the questions correctly only, with little or no supporting data or research (9 points)

13 POINTS *Have answered all of the questions correctly and supplied sufficient and significant supporting data or research to at least 50% of the questions (13 points)

17 POINTS *Have answered all of the questions correctly and supplied sufficient and significant supporting data or research to all of the questions (17 points)
