This week’s collaborative project is an ethics case study analysis assignment. Before starting this collaborative activity, read Case 1 and Case 3 (Schage, 1997), which deal with deception in social science research. For this case study analysis, you will develop the following components:

Case Study Analysis Components (See Ethics of the Mind—Case Study Analysis Template):
  1. Determine which case the group will discuss and analyze (Case 1 or Case 3).
  2. Discuss the case using the practical and theoretical ethics ideas you have studied in this week’s resources.
  3. Each group member will locate and review an ethics decision-making model that can be applied to the case. (Resources can be found below and in the project template).
  4. Discuss the case using the decision-making models that the group members locate.
  5. Each group member will record their decision-making model on their individual Case Study Analysis template. Complete segments A‒D of the template at the end of the group discussions.
  6. The group may collaborate on searching for articles but each group member should find one “choice” empirical research study that can inform the case study analysis. Individual members will list their article on the LR matrix template they submit.
