Compelling logic and reasoning in the analysis, the application of correct types of analysis to the situation, and a clear, concise writing style will contribute to a high grade. While the grading may be inherently judgmental, it is not arbitrary.

In either situation, answering such questions should not be confused with the preparation of a written case analysis paper.
