  1. 1. Case Study Research By Jennifer Cain, Christine Irwin, and Kendra Wollert
  2. 2. Case Study Characteristics Qualitative method Bounded system (ie: classroom, event, ) Stems from a descriptive question (what happened when...?) or explanatory question (how or why something happened?) Results are tangible or concrete in nature often because it is personal.
  3. 3. More Characteristics Particularistic, Descriptive, and Heuristic Particularistic focuses on a particular situation or event. Descriptive means your study includes “thick descriptions” of the situation or event. Heuristic is when the reader gains personal insight, beyond what they started with, when the results are in.
  4. 4. Conducting and Analyzing Case Studies < Single vs. Multiple Case Studies > < Single vs. Multiple Case Studies > Multiple sites, multiple events, or multiple individuals? Validity and/or generalizing Different analysis techniques for a multiple: Unordered Meta-Matrix Site-Ordered Descriptive Site-Ordered Predictor-Outcome Matrix Time-Ordered Meta-Matrix Scatterplots Site-Ordered Effects Matrix Causal Models
  5. 5. What happened when you introduced sign language into your classroom’s spelling curriculum.
  6. 6. Quick Note: Narrative vs. Case Study Narrative Narrative studies are PERSONAL and share one’s life experiences or important events of one’s life. Narrative studies are usually chronological. Case Study Case studies usually surround social issues. Case studies are bounded: by time, space, or people.
