For this assignment, assume the role of a researcher in the qualitative analysis phase of the study. The data are gathered imported into MAXQDA for analysis. At this point, there are parent codes and sub-codes. However, the software requires human intervention to move past codes to categories and subsequently themes. Clearly, a category of “interview guide topics” cannot be used in the presentation of research results. In this assignment, you will access MAXQDA and practice creating categories and themes.
In summary, to complete this project you need the following deliverables:
1. A screenshot of Joanna’s transcript.
2. A screenshot of Jon’s paragraph-long quote.
3. The four categories developed from subcodes.
4. A rationale for the process you used to collapse the subcodes into groups, or categories.
