The following criteria is used in judging submissions for the Faculty Case Study Competition:
1. Reality Orientation
How "real" is the case? Does it seem that the case is something that could occur on a college campus? Is the problem realistic? Does the case involve something that Student Affairs administrators might actually see on their campuses?
What makes this case unique? Is there something creative about the case in terms of either its application to theory, the way it is presented, or the question involved?
3. Opportunity for SACSA students to apply theory or practice
How will the students working on this case be able to link theory to practice? What opportunities does the case provide for students to develop and expand the case?
4. Clarity of written presentation and organization
How concise is the case? Is there enough information for the students to understand it? Is the case clearly written? What (if anything) is missing?
5. Evidence of thoroughness
The case has been well thought out and provides enough details for the SACSA student to come up with several viable solutions.
