Creswell(2013) on page 203 and 204:
Looking at Attachment to see 4 websites from Creswell (2013), page 203 and 204.
For this task you will review the four qualitative data analysis websites presented within the Creswell (2013) textbook on pages 203 and 204. After you explore each of the four websites, develop a brief critique (rather than a simple description) of how well each one supports the qualitative data analysis process based on the assigned readings.
Length: 4-7 pages, not including a title or reference pages.
1- MAXQDA (http://www.maxqda.com).MAXQDA is a computer software program that help the researcher to systematically evaluate and interpret qualitative texts. It is also a powerful tool for developing theories and testing theoretical conclusions. The main menu has four windows: the data, the code or category system, the text being analyzed, and the results of basic and complex searches. It uses a hierarchial code system, and the researcher can attach a weight score to a text segment to indicate the relevance of the segment. Memos can be easily written and stored as different types of memos (e.g., theory memos or methodological memos). It has a visual mapping feature. Data can be exported to statistical programs, such as SPSS or Excel, and the software can import Excel or SPSS programs as well. It is easily used by multiple codes on a particular project. Images and video segments can also be stored and coded in this program. MAXQDA is distributed by VERBI Software in Germany. A demonstration program is available to learn more about the unique features of this program.
2- ATLAS.ti (http://www.atlasti.com). This program enables you to organize your text, graphic, audio, and visual data files, along with your coding, memos, and findings, into a project. Futher, you can code, annotate, and compare segment of information. You can drag and drop codes within an interactive margin screen. You can rapidly search, retrieve, and browse all data segments and notes relevant to an idea and, importantly, build unique visual networks that allow you to connect visually selected passages, memos, and codes in a concept map. Data can be exported to programs such as SPSS, HTML, XML, and CSV. This program also allows for a group of researchers to work on the same project and make comparisons of how each researcher codes the data. A demonstration software package is available to test out this program, which is described by an available from Scientific Software Development in Germany.
3- QSRNVivo (http://www.qsrinternational.com). NVivo is the latest version of software from QSR International. NVivo combines the features of the popular software program N6 (or NUD*IST 6) and NVivo 2.0. NVivo helps analyze, manage, shape, and analyze qualitative data. Its streamlined look makes it easy to use. It provides security by storing the database and files together in a single file, it enables a researcher to use multiple languages, it has a merge function for team research, and it enables the researcher to easily manipulate the data and conduct researches. Further, it can display graphically the codes and categories. A good overview of the evolution of the software from N6 to NVivo is available from Bazeley (2002). NVivo is distributed by QSR International in Australia. A demonstration copy is available to see and try out the features of this software program.
4- HyperRESEARCH (http://www.researchware.com). This program is an easy-to-use qualitative software package enabling you to code and retrieve, build theories, and conduct analyses of the data. Now with advanced multimedia capabilities, HyperRESEARCH allows the researcher to work with text, graphics, audio, and video sources – making it a valuable research analysis tool. HyperRESEARCH is solid code-and-retrieve data analysis program, with additional theory-building features provided by the Hypothesis Tester. This program also allows the researcher to draw visual diagrams, and it now has a module that can be added, called “Hyper-Transcriber,” that will allow researchers to create a transfer of video and audio data. This program, developed by ResearchWare, is available in the United States.
