Describing a Qualitative Data Coding Process, code and summarize your classmates’ responses to the virtual interview question posed in the earlier Unit 2 Discussion Board 2: Capturing Qualitative Data Virtually.

To create the transcript for analysis, copy and paste each of your classmates’ responses into a Word document.

Provide the results of your coding process, using a diagram to present your findings. Your diagram could be in a matrix format (table) or a concept chart (node network). Refer to your assigned readings on diagramming or other resources explaining how to graphically display qualitative findings.

Your submitted report should include the following:

  • Description of your coding process
  • Topical coding scheme (list of topics; code book)
  • Diagram of findings (topics and themes)
  • Brief narrative summary of findings referring to your graphic diagram
  • Appendix with coded transcripts in one of the following formats:
    • A Word document showing color-coded codes
    • A Word document using the comments function to indicate codes
    • An output file from qualitative software
  • 4 Pages APA format. Please check your email for directions and attachments
