APPENDIX A
TYPES OF CASE STUDIES
Case studies have been recognized as an excellent method to involve the trainee in the
learning process. One problem facing the instructional developer is selecting the right type of
case study to deliver that learning. There have been many books and magazine articles
written on what is the "best type" of case study. In reality, there is no one best type. The
following list of case study types have been selected from the dozens that are available to the
instructional developer. Along with each type of case study given, suggestions for use with
objective classifications (i.e., higher order objectives) have been given, as well as a
description and suggested use for the case study.

BACKGROUND
DEVELOPMENT
Description and suggested uses:
The primary purpose of the background case study is to impart information, to
supply factual data or to familiarize the trainee with the wider circumstances of
a specific situation. It can be presented as a motivator to a lesson or within the
body of a lesson to illustrate a point. The instructor provides a brief description
of the case then asks the trainees questions. After the lesson presentation, a
handout giving the facts of the case, the lessons learned, facility specific actions,
and questions asked by the instructor can be distributed to reinforce the
material.
The advantage of doing this through the medium of a case study, rather than by
means of reading, is that the trainee absorbs the data more easily. It relates to a
real situation. It also has advantages for the older trainee, who needs to acquire
the data but might not be prepared to admit their ignorance if it were presented
more formally.
