  1. Are you a doctoral student who used NVivo for your dissertation within the last 6 months? Does your dissertation include an education research component? (It can be in a field outside of education as long as the research addresses an education question) Earn $100 for participating in a 60 minute telephone interview about the use of NVivo. I am conducting a study on perceptions among doctoral students and their committee members regarding the benefits and problems associated with using NVivo in a dissertation. If you agree to participate in the study, you will be asked to provide me with a copy of your final, successfully defended dissertation, and you will be asked to participate in a 60-minute telephone interview (some time after your defense). The interview will focus on an exemplary qualitative research article of your choosing, the use of NVivo in the dissertation, and any negotiations you observed among your dissertation committee about the use of NVivo or the presentation of findings in your dissertation. I will also ask you to identify the committee member who was most interested in how you arrived at your findings and who might be willing to participate in a similar 60-minute telephone interview. The confidentiality of the interview content will be protected by the researcher, although the committee member and the student will be made aware of each other’s participation in the study. All participants will be compensated $100.00 for their time. Data collection will occur any time between now and August, 2013, depending on your availability and the timeline for completing the dissertation. For more information, please contact Kristi Jackson at kirsten.jackson@colorado.edu, or 303-832-9502.
  2. Absolutely agree that See Also Links should have an option to be "bi-directional" when created, or that one-direcitonal and bi-direcitonal are defaults in the Options. For people who want them to go both ways, their work is doubled.
  3. One option is to run the matrix (with results saved in the results area of Queries), then copy the matrix result from the List view, and paste it in as a Tree Node. The columns will be turned into nodes with Rows as subnodes (so each cell becomes its own node in a tree). Hope that helps.
  4. A potential work-around is to open a Source file, then go to "View" from the main menu. Select "Coding Stripes" and "Coding density only". This will turn on one stripe, which will display a darker black next to passages that have more coding applied to them and a ligher white with passages that have little coding). If you over over one of those dark patches in the coding density stripe, it will provide a list of the codes in that area of text. Cheers.

  6. Claire, sorry if I misunderstood you -- and Pat has provided great ways to think about a model that has a case in it (add a case to a model) and connections to other items in a database. You cannot put a model into a case, though -- just to clarify -- but again I may have misunderstood your question. All the best, Kristi
  7. . Hiya Claire! Copy the projects first. Then open one and go to "File" and "Import Project". Several options allow you to select only certain project items. You cannot merge two models together but you canhave both models in the smame project.
  8. The problem is probably that your cases don't have any qualitative data in them (only attributes). To check, go to Nodes in the Navigation View, and then to your cases. Double click on a case. If it's empty -- that's the problem. You need to code all of the text belonging to a case into that case (just like a Tree or Free node contains the qualitative passages for a theme, Cases contain the qualitative data for a case). There are quite a few ways to do this, but if you have 75 or fewer cases, and you have a document representing each case in your Sources, it's probably going to be fairly easy to highlight all of the text and drag it to the Case Node. There are actually 7 different ways to create cases -- and about 4 ways to get text into cases -- but you don't need to learn them all -- I'd stick with what you already know how to do -- code the text into the case the same way you coded to other nodes. Cheers.
  9. Greetings -- I have one possible explanation. While your attributes may be mutually exclusive, you may still get incorrect counts if your CASES are not mutually exclusive. In other words, each piece of qualitative data (text, audio, video, photo) that is in a case should be in that case and only in that case. If you have a hierarchy of cases (so the parent case is an aggregate of the children), or if there are other methodological reasons you have the same qualitative data in multiple cases within NVivo, you will not get accurate case counts. If you follow the rule for mutually exclusive case data, you will retrieve accurate case counts. If there are methodological reasons you cannot make your cases mutually exclusive, you may find some alternative strategies in either using SETS or copying the project and using one unit of analysis in one project and another unit of analysis in another project. Let me know if that hits the mark or not. Kristi Jackson, kjackson@queri.com
  10. Just out of curiousity, Matt, can you tell if there is any formula notation in those cells that change color?
  11. You can't edit if the coding stripes are on. If you turn them off can you edit?
  12. I think I understand your question, but I'm not 100%. At any rate: The matrix intersection is now a Matrix Query, and when you create it, you'll want to "save results as a new matrix" instead of "preview only" (from the third tab where you enter the instructions for handling results). After it runs, go to Queries in the navigation view, and then to the results subfolder -- copy the matrix and then paste it into your tree -- the individual cells become individual tree nodes.
  13. Can you do an intersection of the document and the node first, and then use that Result as the filter?
