Qualitative Data Analysis Using NVivo: An Introduction Workshop

  1. 1. Qualitative Data Analysis Using NVivo An Introduction Workshop Facilitator: Brenda Cecilia Padilla Rodriguez May 21, 2014
  2. 2. Aims of this workshop Explore the basic functions of Nvivo: Adding data sources. Creating a node tree. Coding. Create a project. Practice deductive and inductive qualitative data coding using NVivo. 2
  3. 3. Establishing a common language Qualitative analysis Identification, examination and interpretation of themes in the data to answer research questions. Themes Patterns in the data Nodes (also called codes!) Usually a word or short phrase that captures the essence or salient attributes of a portion of data. Coding Process of assigning nodes to data 3
  4. 4. What is NVivo? It is a qualitative data analysis software. It is useful for coding… o Interviews o Messages in a discussion forum o Focus group sessions o Documents o And more! 4
  5. 5. Let’s start! Objective To evaluate participants’ course expectations before delivery. Data sources Idea of how to code Inductive (emergent themes) Deductive (based on theory) 5
  6. 6. Basics Create a node tree for online experience (low, medium, high). Select parent node and the click on Create > Node. Code online learning experience. Analyze > Code selection at > Existing node 6 DONE? Create a journal to keep track of your research progress. Include the objective of this exercise (to evaluate participants’ expectations before the course). Create > Memos
  7. 7. Induction (emergent themes) Code participants’ course expectations. Read data sources, identify themes, create nodes and then code: Analyze > Code selection at > Existing node Code as you go: Analyze > Code In Vivo Compare your nodes with a colleague. Find examples of your codes by double-clicking a node. 7 DONE? Record extra notes. Example: North-S4 is excited about online learning. Is this an opportunity that should be taken advantage of? Add an annotation about it! Analyze > New Annotation
  8. 8. Deduction (theory based) Check coding scheme: Match your node tree to the coding scheme. Rename: Right click - Node properties Delete nodes you don’t need or use an “other” node. Compare your coding with a colleague. What were the main course expectations of participants? 8 DONE? Read about inter-rater reliability in Nvivo: (Warning: Advanced stuff!)
  9. 9. Extra! Add data sources 6-7 (image and audio). External data > Pictures External data > Audio Code by selecting parts of the image or the audio (you can have a transcript there). Check how the code examples are provided (coordinates in images and time in audios). 9
