The bad news is you can't split up a source. Nevertheless, you have several options. One option is visually, using the coding stripes filtered by user and showing sub-stripes so you can see not only which rows you both coded but which nodes you coded to.
Another option is to use the coding comparison query limiting it to the source and the nodes you coded to. You can export the results to Excel then delete the rows that are coded by one or other and not both leaving you with the view you want.
Finally, you could achieve your desired result using a matrix coding query but this is little trickier to do. I'm not sure how competent you are with NVivo but I'm assuming in this response that you know what a matrix is. If you don't, you may need to get back to me for more help.
- Start a matrix query
- Insert the codes you worked on into the column
- In the rows change the default option from 'selected items' to 'selected users'
- Don't forget to 'add to list' as everyone gets caught on that one
- Choose run and the matrix will be created intersecting the coders with the nodes and producing a column for each coder which will show the number of references coded for that node and you can drill down see the coded content.
By using all or a combination of these three options, you should be able to discern levels of rater agreement with accuracy and without too much trouble.
Hope this helps,
