Introduction to NVivo


Course Number: NVO-100

Duration: 2 days (13 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

NVivo Training Overview

NVivo is a qualitative data analysis (QDA) tool used to analyze unstructured or qualitative data.

This 2-day NVivo training course teaches attendees how to set up an NVivo database, back it up, import their data, set up a coding structure and code their data to it, and set up and link demographic/profiling information. By the end of day 1, participants will have a solid foundation in gathering, importing, and coding qualitative data in a database environment. Day 2 focuses on how to query the database to retrieve and report on results, ensuring that findings can be supported with high-quality outputs. In addition, there is time for students to work with their own data and ask questions.

Introduction – why use a computer for qualitative analysis? The pros and Cons
The Theoretical Project – a conceptual overview of four key decisions to be made concerning research design as you approach your project
A Tour of NVivo (theory applied)
Building Your Database and Coding Your Data
  • Setting up and backing up your project
  • Importing your data
  • Setting up and linking your demographic/profiling information
  • Creating a coding structure and coding to it
Data Collection
  • Mixed method questionnaire collecting demographics along with quantitative and qualitative questions
Analysis
  • Import Questionnaires
  • Import Quantitative data and match cases
  • Use coding query (simple) to address part 1 of the research question (creating groups)
  • 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
  • Export results and report graphically on the weighting of themes
  • Share information using “Annotations”
  • Link to the literature using “See Also Links”
  • Generate preliminary findings using “Memos” (proposition/summary statements) Test preliminary findings against demographics to further explore/analyze results using “Visualizations”
  • Further interrogate data by automated coding 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
  • Use matrix for deeper integration/exploration of relationships within the data
  • Share/report data with non-NVivo users using HTML Word and Excel export options
  • Demonstrate “Word Frequency Searches,” “Coding Comparisons Query,” and working with PDFs
