Differentiating Between Types Of Case Study Research

There are many types of case studies. 

Find at least three research studies that use a different case study design.

 For each case study, describe the case study design used, the problem, purpose, and research questions the design address and the rationale for why the specific case study design was chosen for that study. 

Within the rationale, discuss if and how so, other case study designs could be used and how it would change the study.

A minimum of one page is required for each research study
