    • Enormous quantity of data is generated that must be reviewed and summarized
    • Balancing rich description with focus and length limitations
  • Some General Steps
    • Prepare the data for analysis
    • Conduct the analysis by developing an in-depth understanding
    • Represent the data in reduced form
    • Make an interpretation of the larger meaning of the data
  • Constant Comparison A method of analysis that involves the review of data as they are gathered and comparison of new data to what has been interpreted, in order to support reject earlier conclusions.
  • Common Qualitative Analytic Styles
    • Template analysis
    • Editing analysis
    • Immersion / crystallization

    • Theorizing
    • Recontextualizing
  • Analytic Processes
    • Organize and catalog the data
    • Review the data for initial impressions
    • Identify a classification system
    • Develop codes and a codebook

    • Credibility
    • Dependability
    • Confirmability
    • Transferability
