Development of Case Studies and Case Scenarios
In the New Scheme of Education and Training, the assessment of elective papers at the Final level is open book and case study based. Further, in certain core papers at the Intermediate and final levels, integrated case scenario based assessment is being introduced to assess higher level analytical skills. For this purpose, we invite expression of interest from experts in different subject areas to contribute to the development of case studies and integrated case scenarios.
I Development of Case Studies in Elective Papers at the Final level
- Case studies need to be developed in the following six elective papers:
|Subject Name||Email-ids for mailing sample case study|
|Paper 6A: Risk Management||[email protected]|
|Paper 6B: Financial Services and Capital Markets||[email protected]|
|Paper 6C: International Taxation||[email protected]|
|Paper 6D: Economic Laws||[email protected]|
|Paper 6E: Global Financial Reporting Standards||[email protected]|
|Paper 6F: Multi-disciplinary case study||mdcs[email protected]|
The syllabus of the above papers are available at https://resource.cdn.icai.org/45573bos35679-final.pdf
- The length of the case study (including MCQs and descriptive questions) should be for 4 to 6 pages.
- Each case study should comprise of MCQs and descriptive questions involving computations/analysis/interpretation.
- Considering that the assessment is open book and case study based, all questions (both MCQs and descriptive questions) should be application-oriented and should arise from the facts of the case [i.e., MCQs and descriptive questions should be framed in such a manner that the relevant provisions of laws/accounting and auditing standards/relevant concepts and principles would need to be applied to the facts of the case study to choose the correct option].
- Each MCQ should have four options out of which there should be only one correct answer.
- Each case study may involve application of two or more topics from the syllabus of the subject.
- In case of Paper 6F: Multi-disciplinary case study, the case study may involve application of provisions/concepts in two or three subjects.
- The remuneration for development of each case study would be Rs. 5,000.
Sample case studies are available at the BoS Knowledge Portal:
II Development of Case Studies/ Case Scenarios in Final (New) Paper 5: Strategic Cost Management and Performance Evaluation
- The Case Study will require to deal with material in less structured situations and to integrate a variety of tools in arriving at a recommended solution. The basic objective of a Case Study is to allow the students to apply ideas and insights from theory to the real-life issues and problems. Case Scenarios, as opposed to Case Studies, are short cases. Written in a more compact style with an appealing narrative, the Case Scenario’s focus is on covering more depth in a specific area. While Case Studies provide the width and depth required for a holistic analysis- based-discussion, Case Scenario enable more in-depth analysis of a given managerial dilemma.
- The cases should be based on Skill Assessment. A list of the verbs that appear in the requirements for each case in this paper is given at below URL.
- Email-id on which sample case study is to be sent is [email protected]
III Development of Integrated Case Scenarios in select subjects at the Intermediate and Final levels
- Integrated case scenarios followed by MCQs based on such case scenarios have to be developed to assess the analytical and application skills in the following select core subjects at the Intermediate and Final level:
