    Post Touro University International Case Studies

    Someone posted that case studies in the TUI MBA programs take the place of exams. How are the studies submitted? I know that they are sent electronically, but I am looking for more information from students as to what software and technology is used.

    I assume that the case studies are writing-intensive assignments. Am I correct? Are they graded for style as well as content, or is grading based upon some other criteria?

    [SIZE=1][I]The fifth lesson I teach is intellectual dependency. Good people wait for a teacher to tell them what to do. It is the most important lesson, that we must wait for other people, better trained than ourselves, to make the meanings of our lives. The expert makes all the important choices; only I, the teacher, can determine what you must study, or rather, only the people who pay me can make those decisions which I then enforce...Curiosity has no important place in my work, only conformity...We've built a way of life that depends on people doing what they are told because they don't know how to tell themselves what to do. It's one of the biggest lessons I teach. [/I][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][B]--From "The Seven-Lesson School Teacher," by John Taylor Gatto, the 1991 New York State Teacher of the Year.[/B] [/SIZE]

    Tracy,

    1) An email is used to send attachments.

    2) MS-Office suite of products are used in writing assignments.

    3) In general, the assignment's length ranges between 5 to 8 typed pages (sometimes more) depending on the topic and professor.

    4) Content, style, and grammar are all factors used in the grading process (again depending on the professor).

    Hope this helps.

    Just to add to Eli's post:
    Touro's courses consist of six modules that require a case study. The case studies provide a decent assessment of the student's appropriation of the material.
