Guide 7: Less Structured Designs A refresher from our overview: To start (my opinion), I don't like the terminology distinction "quantitative-qualitative." It confuses the level of the variables (such as nominal or interval) with the way you conducted your study (e.g., experiment, ethnography), and that is just plain inaccurate. Many historical studies, for example, are highly quantitative. Field studies may gather information on quantitative variables.

A.A.P.P.Q and C-I-SAID I have been retired for more than 10 years but I still get e-mails about C-I-SAID and the A.A.P.PQ. C-I-Said is a legacy product and may not work on modern operating systems.

Outline Inquiry paradigms Cartesian anomaly The downfall of positivism A participatory worldview Critical subjectivity and four ways of knowing Methodology: co-operative inquiry The body as a subjective-objective reality The relevance and limits of conventional medical research The relevance of co-operative inquiry A co-operative inquiry project Inquiry paradigms Any method of inquiry presupposes an inquiry paradigm, which is a set of basic beliefs about the nature of reality and how it may be known (Guba and Lincoln, 1994; Heron and Reason, 1997). These are philosophical presuppositions of the method and are not derived from the method.

CAQDAS (New Media Methods @ Loughborough University) Although it is true that all CAQDAS programs fulfill similar tasks (Lewins & Silver 2004: 3ff; Weitzman and Miles 1995), at the same time there are some substantial differences between the different packages (Heimgartner 2005; Lewins & Silver 2004; Lewis 2004). These are not simple differences of taste. As I have demonstrated elsewhere (Koenig 2004), specific methodologies might require a specific CAQDAS, which may not always be the program most widely available. Even if the CAQDAS available to you might support your chosen methodology, classical path dependence theory (David 1985) cautions us against choosing a program solely on the basis that it is available at one's institution. Since the learning curve for almost all CAQDAS is steep, even peer group support might not outweigh the advantages a better fit for your methodology might have.

Coding in NVivo Before looking at coding in NVivo, it helps to address a few assumptions. In all qualitative research, the work involves some airing out of assumptions early on. That seems like a useful practice even for a simple primer. The assumption for coding is that the researcher has a clear and close attention to words and word meanings (including nuances and inflections) during the research and data analysis. To this end, it may help to bring this issue of language-based meanings to the fore first. Creator Processing ... Personal $ Svg $20 ✓ Up to $75 merchandises for personal use.

Qualitative program evaluation methods J. Mitch Vaterlaus, M.S. Graduate Extension Assistant Utah State University Dedoose Dedoose is a web application for qualitative and mixed methods research developed by professors from UCLA, and is the successor to EthnoNotes. Dedoose is designed, developed, and operated by SocioCultural Research Consultants (SCRC), whose majority of ownership consists of professors from UCLA.[1] Dedoose's differs from traditional QDA software in that it was designed as an easy to use, highly visual, and cost effective alternative to traditional qualitative data analysis software.[2] Dedoose and EthnoNotes have gained recognized for their integration of qualitative and quantitative data analysis methods in combination with interactive data visualizations.[3] The Dedoose family of tools have been used in a wide variety of studies in many industries from medical,[4] market research,[5] social policy research,[6] and other academic social science research[7] Codification of Qualitative DataIntegration of Quantitative DataInteractive Mixed Methods Data Visualization Bubble Chart
