The amount of data we gather in some qualitative studies can be overwhelming – especially data from multi-day message boards. Traditional methods of analysis are functional, but they can be time-consuming. Digital tools can assist in the process. This webinar will begin with a quick review of traditional (no-tech or low-tech) tools, then will expose you to a sampling of higher-tech tools (Delve, NVivo, Reduct, and Relative Insight), explained by the QRCA members who use them. This will not be a how-to session; rather, it is “tasting menu” of some of the tools that can make the analysis of qualitative data less daunting.
Poor data quality is a growing problem in qualitative research. We will discuss how it manifests itself, and its impact. Then we will detail a proven solution that uses available technology to improve data quality by pre-qualifying respondents for usage criteria and articulation.
