DOE-STD-1058-93
Case Study Type:
Objective Classifications:
DECISION
DEVELOPMENT, EVALUATION, PROMOTION, DEFENSE
Description and suggested uses:
The decision case study can be used as an exercise within a lesson plan, or as
an evaluation tool to measure whether the trainees have achieved the objective.
This type of case study can be combined with a role play to enhance the
learning experience. The decision case study requires the trainee to do more
than to acquire and manipulate data or to provide an analysis of a situation.
Here, the trainee has to exercise judgment and state what should be done in the
circumstances described. This requires the formulation of an action plan.
The decision case study is useful when the instructional developer wants to
improve creative thinking, judgment, or attitudes. This is also an excellent
method to gauge trainee performance under various situations. It provides a
risk-free atmosphere for the trainees to test their actions.
Case Study Type:
Objective Classifications:
EXERCISE
DIAGNOSIS, DEVELOPMENT, EVALUATION
Description and suggested uses:
This type of case study relates to real-life situations. Similar to the background
case study method, the practice of certain techniques, particularly those
involving quantitative manipulations (e.g., chemistry dilution or concentration
problems, startup rate problems, shielding problems, criticality problems) are
made easier if the data is presented in case form. The trainee can see that the
manipulation relates to a necessary job skill, rather than being purely an
academic exercise. This is important especially when instructing adult learners.
This type of case study is equally effective in classroom, laboratory, or on-the-
job settings.
