Week 5 – Assignment: Evaluate the Case Study Design
Warm-Up Activity 5.1: How to Read a Scientific Paper
Review Purdue University’s, How to Read a Scientific Paper, located under your weekly resources.
Spotlight on Skills: Developing a PowerPoint Presentation
For this assignment, you will prepare a PowerPoint Presentation. For help in using this tool, review the PowerPoint Tutorial located under your weekly resources.
Your task this week is to prepare a PowerPoint presentation for an undergraduate psychology research methods course in which you synthesize and evaluate key components and principles of case study research. To do so, you will need to locate at leasttwo peer-review articles in which the researchers used a case study design. You will use these studies as well as three to the topic you submitted in Week 1, to help illustrate points throughout your presentation.
The presentation should critically demonstrate the following:
Identify the strengths, challenges, assumptions, and limitations of the design.
Appraise the role of the researcher in this qualitative design method. Note any potential ethical considerations.
Generate sample research question(s) based upon your topic choice from Week 1 that would be appropriate for this design, justifying your questions.
Define the essential components of case study design, and explain how these components fit within the overall framework of this design.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at leastfive scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 10-12 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 200-300 words for each slide
The case study design is an in-depth investigation of something that is individual, that is unique and this can mean an individual person, a particular group, an event of some kind, or a specific community. This design closely studies genuine, actual, everyday situations. The design utilizes the compilation and contribution of detailed information about a specific person or even a small group. The data that is accumulated is infused with the individual interpretations and explanations of the specific participants.
The case study is an intense examination of an the unique individual, or group, or event, extracting conclusions specific to that individual and only in that individuals particular situation or setting. In psychology research, case studies are normally limited to the examination of a particular individual. The information that is obtained in this type of design is characteristically historical in nature and relates to experiences in the participants past. In addition to understanding what the participant has experienced in their past, case study designs also include important and significant events that are also occurring in the participants routine life.
Case study research is a design in which the researcher studies an individual case or several cases over time. This is accomplished through methods that entail detailed collection of data from numerous sources that can include observations, interviews, and reviews of documents and reports. This is a very popular design, which is flexible because the term single can be defined in several ways.
This is very different from the narrative research that we learned about earlier. It is not unusual for students to get the two designs confused with one another. To help resolve this issue, it is important to remember that narrative research is a design that describes the highly detailed life experiences of a single individual that focuses on the participants account of their story and how individuals make sense of their life, or story.
Be sure to review this week’s resources carefully. You are expected to apply the information from these resources when you prepare your assignments.
