The case response will be assessed on the following criteria: o The quality of the answer – For example, has the question been answered fully? Does the answer show an understanding of the issues under scrutiny? Is the answer structured and logically organised? Or is it rambling and fragmented? o The quality of the supporting analysis – For example, does the answer show understanding of the tools, techniques, frameworks and/or models used? Is the answer based on the results of analysis? Is the answer derived from analysis/evaluation?
