    • 9. What is qualitative research? &amp;quot; All research ultimately has a qualitative grounding &amp;quot; - Donald Campbell
    • 10. What is qualitative research? <ul><li>The primary intent of qualitative research is to “listen” to or learn from the participants/clients themselves about the topic of interest.
    • 11. Qualitative data can consist of: </li><ul><li>Words (e.g., from interviews),
    • 12. Pictures (e.g., video), or
    • 13. Objects (e.g., an artifact) </li></ul></ul>
    • 14. Nature of qualitative research <ul><li>Aims for a complete, rich, detailed description.
    • 15. Often recommended during earlier phases of research.
    • 16. Researcher may only know roughly in advance what he/she is looking for.
    • 17. Design may emerge as the study unfolds.
    • 18. Researcher becomes subjectively immersed in measuring and interpreting the subject matter.
    • 19. Less objective and generalisable than quantitative. </li></ul>
    • 20. Qualitative data gathering methods <ul><li>Historical
    • 21. Participant observation
    • 22. Focus groups
    • 23. Interviews
    • 24. Surveys </li></ul>
    • 25. Survey research: Closed vs. open-ended questions <ul><li>Close-ended </li><ul><li>researcher provides respondent with limited response options. </li></ul><li>Open-ended </li><ul><li>respondents can formulate their own response. </li><ul><li>e.g., “What are the reasons you donate blood?” ____________________________ </li></ul></ul></ul>
    • 26. <ul><li>Close-ended </li><ul><li>easier to analyse </li></ul><li>Open-ended </li><ul><li>useful in exploratory, pilot or pre-testing stage of research
    • 27. useful for complex issues
    • 28. richer data collected
    • 29. can be less biased than close-ended
    • 30. useful for instrument development and validation </li></ul></ul>Survey research: Close vs. open-ended questions
    • 31. Qualitative data analysis &amp;quot;[Qualitative] data analysis is the process of bringing order, structure and meaning to the mass of collected data. It is a messy, ambiguous, time-consuming, creative, and fascinating process. It does not proceed in a linear fashion; it is not neat. Qualitative data analysis is a search for general statements about relationships among categories of data.&amp;quot; Marshall and Rossman (1990, p. 111)
    • 32. Qualitative data analysis 1. Thematic analysis (treat as qualitative data ) - identify underlying themes - describe themes with illustrative quotes 2. Content analysis (treat as quantitative data ) <ul><ul><li>convert words into data by coding
    • 33. analyse frequencies and percentages </li></ul></ul>
    • 34. Thematic analysis: Treat as qualitative data <ul><li>Transcribe data
    • 35. Read data
    • 36. Develop themes (patterns)
    • 37. Code
    • 38. Analyse &amp; illustrate themes and relationships
    • 39. Report </li><ul><li>summarise themes in words
    • 40. use illustrative quotes </li></ul></ul>
    • 41. Phases of thematic analysis (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Familiarise yourself with your data
    • 42. Generating initial codes
    • 43. Searching for themes
    • 44. Reviewing themes
    • 45. Defining and naming themes
    • 46. Producing the report </li></ul>
    • 47. Generating initial codes (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) Figure 1. Data extract, with codes applied (from Clarke et al., 2006) (from Braun &amp; Clarke (2006, p. 88)) Decisions about initial coding should based on the research question being addressed.
    • 48. Initial thematic map (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) Figure 2. Initial thematic map, showing five main themes (final analysis presented in Braun and Wilkinson, 2003) (from Braun &amp; Clarke (2006, p. 90))
    • 49. Developed thematic map (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) Figure 3. Developed thematic map, showing three main themes (final analysis presented in Braun and Wilkinson, 2003) (from Braun &amp; Clarke (2006, p. 90))
    • 50. Final thematic map (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) Figure 4. Final thematic map, showing final two main themes (see Braun and Wilkinson, 2003) (from Braun &amp; Clarke (2006, p. 91))
    • 51. What makes good thematic analysis? (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Transcription </li><ul><li>The data have been transcribed to an appropriate level of detail, and the transcripts have been checked against the tapes for ‘accuracy’. </li></ul></ul>
    • 52. What makes good thematic analysis? (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Coding </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each data item has been given equal attention in the coding process.
    • 53. Themes have not been generated from a few vivid examples (an anecdotal approach), but instead the coding process has been thorough, inclusive and comprehensive.
    • 54. All relevant extracts for all each theme have been collated.
    • 55. Themes have been checked against each other and back to the original data set.
    • 56. Themes are internally coherent, consistent, and distinctive. </li></ul></ul>
    • 57. What makes good thematic analysis? (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Analysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data have been analysed / interpreted, made sense of / rather than just paraphrased or described.
    • 58. Analysis and data match each other / the extracts illustrate the analytic claims.
    • 59. Analysis tells a convincing and well-organized story about the data and topic.
    • 60. A good balance between analytic narrative and illustrative extracts is provided. </li></ul></ul>
    • 61. What makes good thematic analysis? (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Overall </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enough time has been allocated to complete all phases of the analysis adequately, without rushing a phase or giving it a once-over-lightly. </li></ul></ul>
    • 62. What makes good thematic analysis? (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Written report </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The assumptions about, and specific approach to, thematic analysis are clearly explicated.
    • 63. There is a good fit between what you claim you do, and what you show you have done / ie, described method and reported analysis are consistent.
    • 64. The language and concepts used in the report are consistent with the epistemological position of the analysis.
    • 65. The researcher is positioned as active in the research process; themes do not just ‘emerge’. to analyse any data </li></ul></ul>
    • 66. Pitfalls to avoid in thematic analysis (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) <ul><li>Failure to analyse any data
    • 67. Questions used as themes
    • 68. Weak or unconvincing analysis
    • 69. Mismatch between data &amp; themes
    • 70. Mismatch between theory &amp; themes </li></ul>
    • 71. Disadvantages of thematic analysis <ul><li>Focus – can be too flexibile – analysis needs focus and clear thinking
    • 72. Tends to be descriptive (limited use for hypothesis testing)
    • 73. Analyses across cases (not within)
    • 74. Can be labour intensive
    • 75. Subject to researcher bias
    • 76. Can have limited generalisability
    • 77. Difficult to establish reliability &amp; validity </li></ul>Note : Many of the disadvantages depend more on poorly conducted analyses or inappropriate research questions than the method itself.
    • 78. Advantages of thematic analysis <ul><li>Relatively easy &amp; quick method to learn, &amp; do. Accessible to researchers with little or no experience of qualitative research.
    • 79. Results are generally accessible to educated general public.
    • 80. Useful method for working within participatory research paradigm, with participants as collaborators </li></ul>
    • 81. Advantages of thematic analysis <ul><li>Can usefully summarize key features of a large body of data, &amp;/or offer a &apos;thick description&apos; of the data set
    • 82. Can highlight similarities &amp; differences across the data set.
    • 83. Can generate unanticipated insights .
    • 84. Allows for social as well as psychological interpretions of data.
    • 85. Can be useful for producing qualitative analyses suited to informing policy development . </li></ul>
    • 86. Content analysis: Treat as quantitative data <ul><li>Coding - convert response into numerical code.
    • 87. e.g., “What is you occupation?” - code responses into categories such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Professional
    • 88. Clerical/administrative
    • 89. Skilled manual
    • 90. Unskilled manual
    • 91. Unemployed/other </li></ul></ul>
    • 92. Content analysis: Coding “ Why do you donate blood?” <ul><li>Could code responses into categories such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Social
    • 93. Protective
    • 94. Understanding
    • 95. Values
    • 96. Enhancement </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Choice of coding categories may be informed by theoretical literature </li></ul>
    • 97. Content analysis: Coding <ul><li>Establish objectives for coding frame
    • 98. Read through all responses
    • 99. Develop list of common categories
    • 100. Try not to have too many categories - look to combine similar categories
    • 101. To increase reliability and validity , at least 2 researchers develop coding separately, then work together on final coding, code separately, compare responses and analyse inter-rater reliability </li></ul>
    • 102. Content analysis: Inter-rater reliability <ul><li>Inter-rater reliability – percentage of times that raters agree on the category each response goes into. </li></ul><ul><li>Can use a statistic called Cohen’s kappa ( κ ) to assess inter-rater reliability – interpret like a correlation coefficient. </li></ul>
    • 103. Content analysis: Multiple response analysis For analysis of open-ended questions with multiple responses : <ul><li>e.g., 364 uni students were asked to list up to 4 characteristics they thought were important in a romantic partner.
    • 104. 14 response themes were identified. 4 new variables were created (resp1, resp2, resp3, resp4) and codes 1 to 14 were used to code each case&apos;s responses. </li></ul>
    • 105. Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 106. <ul><li>This example involves responses to an open-ended question about why the person goes to university.
    • 107. Up to two written responses were allowed (resp1 and resp2).
    • 108. The qualitative responses were coded into four categories: Parents, Friends, Career, Avoid Work. </li></ul>Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 109. Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 110. Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 111. Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 112. <ul><li>The most commonly cited motivating for going to university was “friends”, cited by a half of all participants (52%) and accounting for over a third of all responses (34%).
    • 113. The next two most popular reasons were “avoid work” and “parents” cited by 25% and 24% of respondents respectively. “Career” was cited by 16% of respondents. </li></ul>Content analysis: Multiple response analysis
    • 114. Writing up qualitative analysis: Method <ul><li>Create a decision trail (could someone replicate your methodology?)
    • 115. Explain rationale for choice of analysis method
    • 116. Explain development of the thematic categories
    • 117. Explain coding </li></ul>
    • 118. Writing up qualitative analysis: Results <ul><li>Thematic maps and/or descriptive statistics (&amp; graphs if appropriate)
    • 119. Theme names and descriptions, possibly with illustrative quotes
    • 120. Inferential statistics and effect sizes (if appropriate) </li></ul>
    • 121. Writing up qualitative analysis: Discussion <ul><li>Did a meaningful picture of the phenomenon under study emerge?
    • 122. Trustworthiness / rigour of the qualitative findings.
    • 123. Consistency between qualitative and quantitative findings.
    • 124. Contributions of findings to theory and practice . </li></ul>
    • 125. Qualitative data analysis: Summary <ul><li>Open-ended data can be analysed as qualitative (thematic analysis) or converted to quantitative data (content analysis) .
    • 126. Code then analyse the data , seeking to identify patterns as answers to the research question(s) .
    • 127. Describe your decision-making to provide a rigorous ‘audit-trail’ </li></ul>
    • 128. Student questions ?
    • 129. Lab report guidelines &amp; marking criteria
    • 130. Lab report guidelines and marking criteria: Key documents <ul><li>The two key links are: </li><ul><li>Lab report guidelines
    • 131. Lab report marking criteria </li></ul><li>Also see the Lab Report section on Moodle </li></ul>
    • 132. Mark weighting Introduction ( 10% ) Method ( 15% ) Results ( 45% ) <ul><ul><li>Qualitative (10%)
    • 133. EFA (15%)
    • 134. MLR (10%)
    • 135. Advanced ANOVA (10%) </li></ul></ul>Discussion ( 30% ) Present at least one of each of these 4 types of analyses.
    • 136. Overall research question(s) Your lab report should be guided by at least one central, clearly stated research question : e.g., To what extent do university students&apos; time management skills account for their degree of satisfaction with university teaching and learning ?
    • 137. Specific research questions and hypotheses <ul><li>The next step is to identify specific hypotheses or research questions (RQ) : e.g., What do students report as the most dissatisfactory aspects of university? (Qualitative – RQ)
    • 138. Create at least one hypothesis or research question for each major analysis. </li></ul>
    • 139. Specific research questions and hypotheses: Examples <ul><li>What are the underlying dimensions of university student satisfaction? (EFA – RQ)
    • 140. To what extent do self-reported time management skills predict students&apos; satisfaction with university education and teaching? (MLR – RQ) </li></ul>
    • 141. Specific research questions and hypotheses: Examples It is predicted that: <ul><li>males and females will have similar levels of education and teaching satisfaction
    • 142. those who are coping with university are more satisfied
    • 143. there is no interaction between gender and coping. (Factorial ANOVA - Hypothesis) </li></ul>

    • 146. Satisfaction – ? factors
    • 147. Time management - ? factors </li></ul>
    • 148. Lab report: Exploratory Factor analysis <ul><li>Analyse either satisfaction or time management (or both – but only report fully on one in the Results – briefly summarise the other one)
    • 149. Include internal consistency, creation composite scores, and correlation between factors. Descriptive stats for factors can be covered later, e.g., in the ANOVA. </li></ul>
    • 150. Lab report: Multiple linear regression <ul><li>MLR should involve at least three predictors (IVs) with one DV.
