Analyzing Case Study Design

Analyzing Case Study Design. Outcomes for Action Research and Program Evaluation studies must go beyond simply sharing results with stakeholders.  The “action” in action research refers to the development of a specific intervention or action plan that emerges from the findings.  The outcomes of program evaluations generally take the form of a report on program effects and are often presented to funders, planning boards, politicians, and the like for their buy-in and support.  The following are some suggested examples of outcomes and actions that are expected in PSL studies.

Analyzing Case Study Design

  • Diagnosis of the need for change in an organization or community and an action plan or set of strategies to make that happen
  • A training program that is delivered to a group designated by the stakeholders or the stakeholders themselves and then is evaluated
  • Development of a program to intervene with the problem – for example, providing healthy cooking classes for parents of children with childhood obesity or establishing supports for cancer survivors
  • Establishing a community task force to address issues such as violence prevention, truancy, or substance abuse
  • Providing a job skills training program to reduce homelessness


  • “Testing out” a particular intervention – for example, teaching mindfulness skills to veterans with PTSD and measuring changes
  • Documenting program effectiveness in order to report to funders
  • Measuring the effectiveness of a violence prevention program to serve as a model for other communities
  • Evaluating a job skills training program to determine its success in reducing homelessness
  • Measuring client satisfaction with a program or service
