IV-a: Qualitative Data Analysis
Participants learn to organize qualitative data more efficiently for evaluations using computer-aided qualitative data analysis. The basics of qualitative data analysis are introduced using first-cycle and second-cycle coding methods. We use widely available commercial software to organize, code, and analyze data according to evaluation questions. We also cover how to interpret the results and present the findings in ways that are easily understood and visually appealing.
