A problem-solving case is a story based on an actual situation, but a story without an end-a story that leaves the student-reader puzzling over what to do. Problem-solving cases can be short and simple or rich in detail and multi-layered in problems, but they share the distinction of being based on reality and of ending with a problem or dilemma to solve. Their goal is to encourage student-generated analysis.
