Analysis
Context/ Background Balanced concise use of facts and story-telling narrative in providing case context/ background and applies creativity in presenting Provided case facts but gathered up some “extra” information, or delivered case facts without organizing into narrative or effort to capture audience interest Copied/ pasted case facts without considering relevance/ or how they “fit” together Did not provide context/ background
Problem/issue identification

 

Relevance conveyed

Clearly Identified problem/ issue and explained in a manner that helped class understand why it was important or mattered Problem/ issue was adequately identified, and explanation was clear, but less certainty about its relevance (although some sense of impact) Poorly understood the case problem/ issue and struggled to explain to peers why they should care (little info conveyed about relevance) Did not identify problem/ issue in the case
Role/ Requirement Conveyed strong sense that role / requirement was well-understood and fully addressed requirements Made an effort to perform role and most of requirement was addressed, but overlooked some aspects Incompletely addressed requirements/ role was not carried out to completion Did not meet majority of requirement or didn’t perform role requested
Conceptual Application
Concept(s)/ theory Identified applicable concepts/ theories (properly cited) and made a clear effort to apply them to case analysis (explained how concept/theory was used in analysis) Identified applicable concepts/ theories (properly cited) but their relevance or use in case analysis was incomplete/ missing Identified concepts/ theories covered but no effort to relate to the case and missing citation Did not identify concepts/ theories
Presentation & Communication
Findings & Ideas Presented findings and ideas or alternatives in a logical and cohesive manner; thought-provoking ideas or interesting findings shared to engage peers Findings and ideas were loosely listed (groupings or organization difficult to follow); simple ideas were less engaging for class or few connections between ideas made Minimal findings or ideas generated; confused descriptions or difficult to follow ideas Did not present findings or ideas about the case
Argument/ Recommendation Persuasive argument well-supported with case facts/ evidence demonstrated careful thought and planning Argument/ recommendation was less convincing or not directly supported with case facts/ evidence; argument was more difficult to buy-into Argument or recommendation was not backed up by case facts or only tangentially linked to evidence; seemed impractical or unclear in many aspects; No argument or recommendation was presented
Written submission Written submission provides brief “exec summary”- level introduction and offers summary conclusion that nicely pulls everything together; No spelling errors, clear and concise language, easy to follow and read Written submission could be more concise and clear; introduction or conclusion minimally attempted and leaves the reader to piece things together; few spelling errors, structure could be better organized to aid understanding Written submission a print-out of presentation/ unexplained list of bullet points; no introduction or summary conclusion; written communication contains spelling errors and poor use of language, structure is difficult to follow or understand No written submission made
Discussion Facilitation Generates questions or interjects comments to promote discussion; attends to voices and respectfully listens and steers conversation; makes an effort to engage all class members Less prepared to prompt discussion and engagement; limits conversation to one or two peers Solicits questions and engagement but relies solely on peers to engage in discussion; Does not take a lead role in moderating discussion or interrupts with monologue
