I need some suggestion from those who already have done or on the way to complete a study involved both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. Suppose I have 30 reseach participants, all of them filled out a set of questionnaires and 15 out of them have participated in a face to face interview. Currently I am trying to organise the information collected from those who participated in both – survey and interview. But I am wondering how to utilise the quantitative (survey) data that collected from other 15; what extra bit I can add on the top of my initial mixed inference? Does this have any possibility to show any usefulness?5th June 2010 at 1:22 am #4531Mary Kathryn WhitneyMember
Very new to this myself, but I have found these to be helpful in guiding my thinking about structuring qual/quan research:

Dedoose is a cheap and effective web application for doing just this. Please check out http://www.dedoose.com for a lot more information on this. There are a series of video’s that walk through the tool. It’s based on an older application called EthnoNotes (http://www.ethnonotes.com) which has been used in the field for quite a while. If you are interested in a free account, let me know or just use the sign up and in the comments refer back to me.

I tried and its really interesting. I could not find where to sign up, clicked on log in and it asked for my user name and pass word which I don’t have yet. So I am interested to have a free account if possible. if you kindly give me a bit more direction for being able to use that program.
Thanks again10th June 2010 at 3:47 am #4526
