Sample Education Case Study on motivation problem

Students will solve a common knowledge or motivation problem in their current or future professional context as a professional school counselor. Specifically, students are required to:


  1. Articulate the nature of the learning or motivation problem
  2. Identify 2 potential causes of the problem
  3. Recommend 4 appropriate evidence-based interventions (i.e., 2 for each potential cause)
  4. Design a plan for evaluating the effectiveness of the intervention



Students will use relevant course materials and engage in a separate research review to include at least 4 additional scholarly sources (empirical articles, review articles, or books) to support and justify their analysis.



Students will complete a Case Study Worksheet (page 2) (e.g., graphic organizer) throughout the course to plan, receive formative feedback from the instructor and peers, and present to the class.
