Unique-Case Analysis

A framework used within a case study evaluation approach, unique-case analysis assumes that each case has unique attributes and that much can be learned by concentrating on a single case. Using unique-case analysis, an evaluator would first capture and respect the details of each individual case being studied and analyze the data collected from each case within its own context. A cross-case analysis might follow, depending on the framework of the evaluation and the quality of the individual case studies.
