How to create Case Study Questions

1. Case Study Questions

Case Study questions are used to assess a candidate's calibre to assess a particular business case scenario. To create a Case Study type question:

• In the account, click on the My Questions tab and then click on Add Question button on the top right side.
• Click on Application-based questions and select the Question Type as Case Study Question from the drop-down options and provide a Topic Name to which       the question is supposed to be added.
• In the screen that opens later, select the difficulty level of the question as per choice from the Difficulty Level drop-down box.
• Fill in the 'How to attempt? (Case Instruction)' field with the instruction that we want the candidate to follow to attempt the question.
• In the ‘Case Situation’ field, fill in the business scenario as desired for the question.
• In the ‘Problem Statement’ field, fill in the main question that the candidate needs to find a solution for.

2. How to Fill the Case Information Box

This is the main area that the candidate can refer to while making/arriving at his decisions. This would majorly contain information related to the business case presented or possible analytics relevant to decision-making. Using these reference nodes, the candidate’s decision journey and final decision would be auto-evaluated.

• In the Add node box, provide the parent node's name, and click on Add node. The node is added in the blank space below.
• Click on the node, and on the right side of the Case Information box, click on Add Query.
• In the Query box, provide the Query Question and Query Answer, and provide the marks allotted for that query. We can add multiple queries for each node.
• To add more nodes under the parent node, select the parent node, and then click on Add node again. A child node is created. Provide the relevant queries for      it as explained in the point above.

Note: You can create multiple child nodes

• To delete any node, click on the node and then click on Remove.
• To rename any node, double click on the node and then change the name.

Once the nodes have been created and queries have been added to each node, proceed with the following steps:

• In the Max Queries Allowed field, provide the number of times a candidate can view the queries. (Ensure that it is greater than the number of overall relevant     queries). Relevant queries are the ones that carry marks and are important for solving the Problem Statement. 
• In the Answer Type scroll-down, select Single Correct (if only one answer is correct) or Multiple Correct (if more than one answers is correct).
• In the Answer Details field, provide the answers from which the candidate will choose the correct answer. Mark the correct answer with the desired marks.
• Click on the Save button.

3. Possible Errors while creating Case Study questions:

• If any node does not hold at least one query, an error prompt occurs. Each node should possess at least one query. 

• When the number of ‘Max Queries Allowed’ is less than the number of relevant queries overall, then we will see the following error prompt.

Specify the maximum queries, which should be greater than the number of relevant queries overall displayed. Then click the Save button.
