Proposing a new method for computer-assisted qualitative data analysis
Transcript of Proposing a new method for computer-assisted qualitative data analysis
qualitative data analysis

Coding: You are a natural
The WASGIJ - puzzle:
a fitting analogy
Transferring the model to computer-assisted analysis
The journey begins
A possible result of
"first cycle coding" (Saldana)
Step 1: Developing sub categories from very broad codes
From descriptive to conceptual codes
The story of the NCT method of computer-assisted data analysis
Example: Building a category from all the descriptive codes related to the BUT factor of parenting
Take care and do not walk into the code swamp ! !
A second way into the code swamp: mixing layers of codes
Example of a structured code list
... or structuring the list with the help of numbers
The structured landsccape
take a break from coding. The code list needs to be reviewed, sorted and structured.
The journey continues - use the developed code list and continue to code the data
Take time out to
Types of memos
Research question memo as
a type of analytical memo
Tools for further explorations
Why do we need a new method?
Complex software can get in the way of analysis.
Sometimes, all you need to do is print out your fieldnotes, take a highlighter, and talk it over with yourself or with someone else.
Big walls are important – I’ve found that I need lots of wall space to spread my ideas out. Carry sticky notes with you everywhere you go........
presentation prepared by
Dr. Susanne Friese
the sticky notes method
the "back to Excel" method
Software supported - but not systematic
This is better - adding structure and transparency
Structured - but still room for improvement
Coding separately for different aspects
Moving on to software-supported analysis
Resulting code structure...
... allowing for meaningful cross-tabulations of codes
this is just a long list of descriptive labels
you need to conceptualize and merge
Code query + variable
Example of a complex query
It is not all about numbers: Access your data "behind" the table
Imaging a data landscape
Get ready for the journey
The NCT model
closer to reality
Develop ideas for sub codes
Create sub codes
Distribute data into sub codes
resulting code structure
Using seperate categories for different layers
Benches of reflection
Putting it all together: The NCT method
"Computers, like every technology, are a vehicle for the transformation of tradition."
