Introduction to NVivo 8 – Two Day Training Workshop
Day 1: Setting up your NVivo Database
Introduction – why use a computer for qualitative analysis?
The theoretical project
Designing, formatting and importing a document
Managing digital data
Linking text using annotations, memos, hyperlinks and see also links
Using text search to explore data
Recording information about your participants using attributes.
Creating sets for data interrogation
Searching data—analysis techniques.
Modelling ideas generated from data.
Day 2: Analysing your data
It is compulsory for to have completed day one in order to be able to participate in day two OR to be an experienced Nvivo user. The objective of this workshop is to conduct a piece of analysis using raw data and a research question. By the end of the session, the participants will have:
Set up a database with a robust architecture
Analysed the data using queries and manual analysis where appropriate
Reported on the findings
Will the Government win the next general election?
If not, why not?
Mixed method questionnaire collecting demographics along with quantitative and qualitative questions
Import Quantitative data and match cases
Use coding query (simple) to address part 1 of the research question
Target a participant set and use coding query (advanced) to group them
Auto-code their qualitative responses to a single node
Code on their responses to identify reasons for change
Share information using annotations
Generate preliminary findings using memos (proposition/summary statements)
Further interrogate data by automated coding on by demographic value (gender) using an advanced coding query
Use text search to augment manual coding and integrate results
Use a compound query to refine searches
Test preliminary findings against demographics to further explore/analyse results using short graphical queries
Pull findings together by creating relationship nodes and code data to them
Export results and report graphically on weighting of concerns
Share/report data with non NVivo users using HTML export
Use matrix for deeper integration/exploration of relationships within the data
Finally, there will be an open session at the end of the workshop to facilitate people who wish to work with their own data which will also provide the opportunity for a question and answer dialogue where all parties to the workshop can learn from each other
