    Node coverage percentage

    Hi Heather, I solved exactly using this approach. I made a coding query using a lot of filters and create a file using the result search. For me, it is important because the coverage based always on source file does not represent the correct measure for a specific node of a specific case. This workaround could be prevented if we could change the context of coverage percentage calculation or if the Nvivo assumes a new context for calculation always when filters are applied. Thanks.

    Node coverage percentage

    Hi Obi, On the Reference tab, the percentage coverage shown is the percentage of the source that has been coded at this node and there is no way to change this behaviour. There is no easy workaround to find the information you are after. You may be able to manually split up your sources (e.g. so you have one source per case), and the percentage shown may then be closer to what you are looking for. If you would like more information, please contact us by submitting a support form at the following link. It is likely we would need to see a copy of your project to be able to advise you on a workaround. http://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/contact-us/contact-support Regards, Heather
  4. Hi everyone, I know the Nvivo is about qualitative analysis. Nevertheless, when using the cluster analysis function, we need to explain the validity of those results. For example, how to show that Pearson coefficient of 0.46 is significant? The p-value logic could be applied here? If it is not possible to know all the parameters to calculate the Pearson coefficient, how to justify the use of Nvivo as a reliable tool? I really need some help with this. Thanks very much!
  5. Hi folks. I have used NVivo a couple of times for analyzing themes in texts, and it worked wonderfully well. Recently, I started musing about whether NVivo would be a good tool for organizing multiple distinct but related projects. All will be unified by a basic theoretical perspective and a number of central concepts, some distinctly related to the theoretical perspective, others share by an awfully wide range of other perspectives. I have been developing projects in several general substantive contexts (e.g., medical care, informal social support, public discourse about health/risk) in which I have begun to develop specific studies with different people. As you can imagine, organizing sources, notes, data, manuscript drafts, etc., has become overwhelming. So, I am wondering if anyone has experience with using NVivo to organize a variety of more and less tightly connected projects. If you have such experience, can you offer advice about how to approach structuring the materials in NVivo. As noted, my experience has been limited to single, relatively simple projects with distinct data and analyses. Can anyone help me think about NVivo for organizing this research agenda? Thanks for any help.
  6. How to translate the word cloud to another language? Once generated, can we change the words one by one in order to export the translation? Thanks.
  7. I am working on a project where two users are coding the same interviews. I am interested in comparing the text that users selected for each node (code) at the same time. For example, if User A selected the first two sentences of Paragraph A, and User B selected the last 3 sentences of Paragraph A, I want to be able to see both of these text selections side by side. I know that NVivo offers coding stripes, but this does not do a good job showing exactly which words were selected by each user. Highlighting merges both user selections, and I do not think there is a way to customize highlighting based on which user coded what. The inter-rater reliability only shows the amount of times each node (code) was applied, and clicking through to the text does not separate out selections by users. Is there some work-around that I am missing, or does NVivo just not support this type of functionality? Thanks!

    Importing and Applying Classification

    Hi CMcReynolds, When you import a case classification sheet NVivo will either create new cases or add attributes to existing cases. If the “Code” field on your case classification sheet was used for your existing case names, the attribute values for “Big” and “Small” would have been added to these existing cases. You can then run your matrix coding using your nodes as the row criteria and the attribute values as the column criteria. The values shown in each cell will be the number of references coded to each intersection. If you are unfamiliar with running matrix coding queries, you might find the following link to be helpful: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm Regards, Heather

    Node classification

    Hi there, I am new to Nvivo and following the tutorials to organise the demographic information about my interviewees. Each video refers to creating a "node classification" - this option does not appear under my create tab. I was wondering how I can get it to appear. On the videos where is says "node classification", my version has "case classification" - do I follow the same steps under this different name or are they two different things? Thank you
  10. Hi there, I deactivated my license on my old device (following the correct steps listed on the QSR website), but when I wanted to activate my license key on my new device I got a message saying that the license key is already in use. I am not sure what to do now. Currently I have to work on my project using the trial version of NVivo because there is a problem with my license activation. Can someone help me please? Best, L
  11. I'm having quite a time trying to generate useful extracts and reports Here's what I'm trying to do 1) export all the data under one node into excel WITHOUT repeated data. I keep getting repeated content because the extract contains each reference number (one paragraph has multiple reference numbers because there are more than one codes). The purpose of this extract is to enable me to number all the coded material to create a random sample for checking. This is a massive database, so if anyone has techniques for choosing a random sample please let me know. The data are ethnographic fieldnotes so I need to sample by coded content, and not by source. 2) Create a report that contains a list of the nodes used for each bit of coded material (from above). Using this thread https://forums.nvivobyqsr.com/topic/6220-exporting-source-to-excel-with-all-nodes/ I worked out how to create a report that shows me all the nodes in the entire database for a piece of content. But this is too much information, I want to restrict output to a list of about 10 specified codes. Thanks so much!

    Coder and code Matrix Coding Query

    Hi Paula, You cannot run a matrix coding query that has the coder as the row criteria, however you should be able to run a report to find the information you are after. To do this you would create a report from the node view and include the fields: Node.Name Coded Source.Coding Reference.Coded By Initials Coded Source.Coding Reference.Coded Text In the Summary Options, change the summary for ‘Coded Source.Coding Reference.Coded Text’ to ‘Count records’. You may choose to add a filter to limit your report to only the nodes you are interested in. Group the report by Node.Name. When you run the report, for each node you should see a count of the references by each coder. If you are unfamiliar with running a report, you can find further details at the following link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_reports_using_the_report_wizard.htm Regards, Heather
  13. I am attempting to display the output of data within a 'word tree' graphic without truncated words. Does anyone know how to do this? See graphic for illustration of difficulty with my current output display. . .
  14. Hi lpg, So that we can investigate this issue further, can you please send us a copy of your project file and the classification sheets that you are trying to import. Please log a support case via the following link and include the files as attachments: http://qsrinternational.com/nvivo/forms/customer-support If the files are too large to be attached, please let us know and we can organise a Dropbox share that you can use to send us the files. Kind Regards, Nicholas Body

  16. I realized the coverage (Reference tab) is always calculated using all the characters of the source file. The problem is: each source file is coded to different cases and nodes. I have this node hierarchy: 1 - Subject1 1.1 - DimensionA 1.2 - DimensionB I need the coverage of DimensionA calculated based ONLY on Subject1 for a SPECIFIC CASE, not all source file content. Please, help.

    Word cloud export quality poor

    Hi, The Word Cloud export resolution is dependent on the resolution of the monitor it is displayed on. What is captured when exporting is the same as what is displayed on screen, so the size of your NVivo window and the resolution of your monitor affect the exported image. If you're able to use a higher resolution monitor when exporting you will have a higher resolution image as the export result. Please note that you will need to run the word frequency query again after changing your monitor resolution to regenerate the word cloud at this higher resolution. You're likely to get the best quality exported image when exporting to a PNG file. We're unsure if there is an upper limit to the resolution of an exported Word Cloud in this format, but we were successfully able to generate a 3796 x 1520 pixel PNG file using the highest resolution monitor we have available. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  18. Hi Jen, You can code responses based on questions(columns). This will generate separate nodes for answers to separate questions. Refer to the link below: http://help-nv11mac.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/automatic_coding_in_dataset_sources.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  19. *This is a new aspect of NVIVO that I am far from familiar with, so please forgive any misuse of terminology. I am using NVIVO 11 Pro I am coding open-ended responses from Survey Monkey in a spreadsheet format. The survey has been ongoing for a couple of years, so I have about 6 different sources. There is a column in each of these sources that contains a unique identifier from my organization called "Code" (this is in addition to the unique identifier, "Respondent ID", that Survey Monkey also assigns each row). My main objective is to separate respondents into two categories: Big and Small, and look at how the nodes are distributed in both of those categories. I have an Excel spreadsheet that has two columns: every respondent's Code and whether or not it's Big or Small. (I assume this is called a Case Classification in NVIVO?) I have imported the two column as a "Case Classification" and my issue is successfully applying this to the cases so I can perform a Matrix Coding - resulting in a row for each of my nodes and two columns totaling "Big" and "Small" (or another for "not assigned", I suppose). Do I do this for each of my sources? Or will this be automatically applied when I run the Matrix Coding? I admit my confusion is I'm trying to force NVIVO into behaving like Excel, and I know I'm incorrect in that. Could you help explain how I can accomplish this final Matrix Coding? Thank you.

    Timeout for matrix queries

    Update: I was able to do a work-around in one case by converting a two-dimension attribute to two nodes, and applying each of the codes to entire transcripts, as applicable. I used the same query structure, and simply replaced the two attribute values with the two codes. It processed within a matter of seconds. However, it makes no sense to have to treat attributes as nodes simply to cross-tabulate attribute data with other data. I'd still be interested to hear any recommendations for excessively slow matrix queries involving attributes.

    Timeout for matrix queries

    I'm having a problem with matrix queries timing out, but it seems to be a different sort of problem. I can run matrix queries that have just a couple attributes on one axis and nodes on the other axis within a reasonable time. But any matrix that has 1) attributes on both axes (even if just a few), as well as any matrix that has 2) a lot of attributes on one axis and nodes on another, takes an exceedingly long time (over five minutes) or times out. I already compacted and repaired the database and there was no noticeable change. It seemed like queries ran faster yesterday than today, but on further investigation I think it has to do with the two specific query design characteristics listed above. I tried running queries on earlier, backed up versions of the project and it was the same. My project is only 25MB with less than 1,000 references. I could reset the timeout period, but this doesn't seem to be the underlying problem. Suggestions, please? We are trying to wrap up the final stages of analysis, so this is very bad timing. Thanks.
  22. I am trying to do what i thought would be a straightforward matrix coding query which is coders in rows and themes/nodes in the columns so I can see how many times each coder has coded to each theme. But there is no option to select coder (aka user) in the rows or columns of the matrix coding query. I have played with lots of other ways but can't seem to get to this output. I do not want to do a coding comparison query - this would be a much simpler query. Any ideas, I am using NVivo 11 pro so perhaps plus or NVivo 12 can do this? Thanks, Paula
  23. I'm having challenges importing a classification sheet. I have one that works, but I want to update it. I've tried the updating option, but it leads to garbage columns (some, sometimes all). I have managed to update a second sheet, updated, with the name PERSON after changing the name of the original classification sheet. When I try to run a query with the newer sheet, it comes up empty. Is it possible to have 2 sheets that I can selectively draw from? How do I link the second sheet to the cases, which does not seem to have happened? (I did not set up the project architecture, someone else did). Thanks
  24. I have imported an Excel spreadsheet that has an ID column and several additional columns, each of which represents responses to a different open-ended survey question. Rows represent respondents. I have been able to code each cell separately (e.g., Respondent 1's Q1, Respondent 1's Q2, Respondent 2's Q1, Respondent 2's Q2). The coding stripes do not differentiate among columns, however; they show all codes assigned to any of a single respondent's columns. So, for example, how do I filter so that I can analyze only the codes for respondents' answers to Q1 and Q2 and exclude (for the moment) codes from the Q3 and Q4 columns?
  25. I love the word cloud outputs for word frequency and I'm hoping to export one I made for a publication. Unfortunately the photo quality is much too poor for publishing; the words are blurry no matter what format I choose for the export. I have been right clicking on the word cloud and choosing the "export word cloud - ctrl+shift+e" option from the pop up menu. I have tried every format available and each are fuzzy. Disappointing since it's just simple text! If anyone has any fixes for this I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks in advance!
