Introduction to Case Studies

Introduction to Case Studies Assignment Instructions

Each qualitative design is slightly different from the others; these differences are important for researchers to consider when selecting a design that is most appropriate for exploring their research problem. As this course deals with a case study design, this project begins to focus on the case study research methodology via an overview of a ‘plan’ for a Case Study and explores the design phase of case study research. After reviewing the Reading & Study material for the module, address the following paper in current APA format:

1. identify the relevant situation for doing a case study

2. explain the two-fold definition of case study inquiry to include and define the 3 types of case(s) to be studied (Exploratory, Descriptive, and Explanatory)(basically Exercise 1.1 (Yin, 2018))

3. describe the components of research design

4. identify the case study design (single or multiple, holistic, or embedded cases)

5. test the design against four criteria for maintaining the quality of a case study and tactics

6. Application #2 (Yin, 2018, p. 74) – address the statement: “Discuss the possibility that cases are not readily bounded but may have blurry definitions” and how to resolve

Other Requirements

  • In addition to the course textbook(s) and the Bible, this paper must include at least 7 references from scholarly articles that have publication dates no older than 5 years. Do not use any books other than the Bible and the textbook. Do not conduct interviews.

  • In-text citations are required to support your statements, points, assertions, issues, arguments, concerns, paragraph topic sentences, and statements of fact and opinion.

  • The APA required abstract, and conclusion section headings and subject headings (see above) are expected. For papers this length, there should be at least two (2) ‘levels of headings’.
  • The introduction and conclusion sections should not be longer than ½ page each since the assignment is short in word count.

  • Sources of information from Wikipedia, dictionaries, and encyclopedia will not be accepted. Similarity scores must not exceed 20%.
  • Paragraph lengths: Each paragraph should have a topic sentence unless it continues from or provides support to the prior paragraph. A paragraph is defined in this course as being at least 4 sentences in length.
