Problem
identification

The business issue has been

competent and comprehensive
explanation of key driving
forces and considerations.
Impact on company operations
has been correctly identified.
Thorough analysis of the issue
is presented.

The student correctly identified
the issue(s), taking into account
a variety of environmental and
contextual drivers. Key case
information has been identified
and analyzed.

the case (issues), considering
obvious
environmental/contextual
drivers. There is evidence of
analysis, but it lacks depth.

The student correctly identified
the issue(s) but analysis was
weak. An absence of context –
the work is basically descriptive
with little analysis.

The student failed to correctly
identify the issue(s); analysis
was incorrect or too superficial
to be of use; information was
misinterpreted.

Information
gathering

The student showed skill in
gathering information and
analyzing it for the purposes of
filling the information gaps
identified. Comprehensive and
relevant.

Relevant information gaps were
identified and additional
relevant information was found
to fill them. At least two different
types of sources were used.
The student demonstrates
coherent criteria for selecting
information but needs greater
depth.

at least one information gap
and found relevant information,
but which was limited in scope.

additional information to fill it.
