Computer-Aided Qualitative Analysis of Interview Data: Some Recommendations for Collaborative Working

By Kate Ford, Iddo Oberski and Steve Higgins

Abstract

In a research project on the concerns and achievements of newly qualified teachers we used a qualitative data analysis software package for the Macintosh computer. This package allows the storage of documents such as interview transcripts, the coding and indexing of text-units and provides a tool for establishing and refining categories within data. However, although a computer-aided analysis dramatically decreases the time conventionally needed for the cutting, sorting and pasting of interview data, it poses several challenges when used in a collaborative context. In this paper we would like to discuss some of the practical and methodological considerations involved in using the package collaboratively and provide some basic recommendations for successful implementation
