Preparation for case discussion should begin with a rapid reading of the assigned text and case material. Then, it is worthwhile to review the assignment questions for clues as to what issues require special attention. The next step is normally to re-read the case carefully, taking notes, which sort information, facts, and observations under a number of relevant headings. Most students will then want to perform some quantitative analyses, exploring various hypotheses as to the nature and importance of certain phenomena. Finally, preparation will include notes that can be used to guide your interventions in class discussions on the assigned or other issues judged to be critical to the company’s apparent dilemma.

Class Participation

In grading class participation, I will normally use several criteria:

  • Quality of comments

    • --

      Are the comments relevant to the discussion?

    • --

      Do they include analysis, or do they state opinions?

    • --

      Are the comments related to the previous discussion?

    • --

      Do they bring a new insight into the issues?

  • Quantity of class participation

Students are expected to sit in the same seat for each class and to display a name card in all classes.
