About NVivo [ edit ] NVivo is a proprietary desktop software package for the organization and analysis of complex non numerical unstructured data, also known as qualitative data. It is primarily used by qualitative researchers working with very rich text-based and/or multimedia information, where deep levels of analysis on small or large volumes of data are required. This type of analysis can encompass academic studies, business intelligence, market research or data analysis .
« Previous Home Next » With inferential statistics, you are trying to reach conclusions that extend beyond the immediate data alone. For instance, we use inferential statistics to try to infer from the sample data what the population might think.
The page you tried to access does not exist on www.socialresearchmethods.net . Because of the challenges of maintaining old legacy pages on methods (in directory /gallery) or tutorials (in directory /tutorials) topics and the number of external links that needed to be managed, all of those pages have been removed from this site. I'm sorry if that causes anyone inconvenience, but both of those sections of this site were essentially graduate student web projects from the late 1990s.

Uses and Users of Information -- LIS 391D.1 -- Spring 1997 Introduction Case study research excels at bringing us to an understanding of a complex issue or object and can extend experience or add strength to what is already known through previous research. Case studies emphasize detailed contextual analysis of a limited number of events or conditions and their relationships.
Qualitative research is a generic term for investigative methodologies described as ethnographic, naturalistic, anthropological, field, or participant observer research. It emphasizes the importance of looking at variables in the natural setting in which they are found. Interaction between variables is important. Detailed data is gathered through open ended questions that provide direct quotations.
Chapter 12 Qualitative Research (Reminder: Don’t forget to utilize the concept maps and study questions as you study this and the other chapters.) Qualitative research relies primarily on the collection of qualitative data (i.e., nonnumeric data such as words and pictures). I suggest that, to put things in perspective, you start by reviewing the table showing the common differences between qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research. That is, take a quick look at Table 2.1 on page 31 (or go to lecture two because it is also included in the lecture). Next, to further understand what qualitative research is all about, please carefully examine Patton’s excellent summary of the twelve major characteristics of qualitative research , which is shown in Table 12.1 (page 362) and below:
Welcome to the Qualitative Research in Education Home Page! Here are a few links that may be of interest to people interested in learning more about employing qualitative or naturalistic research strategies in educational research and evaluation. This page provides a selected list of resources for qualitative researchers, including links to information on qualitative data analysis software programs, professional association and conference information, and other useful and interesting spaces on the internet. For information about the qualitative research courses I teach here at UNM, please visit my Qualitative Research Courses page. The Qualitative Cafe Developed within the University of New Mexico School of Nursing and Health Sciences Center, this site serves researchers and students interested in qualitative research.
