  1. Have found the answer. After the coding the entire project, select the NVivo Query tab and complete the following Matrix Coding export tasks. 1. For any single item (node), or a group of items (nodes): a. The rows will contain the individual cases, b. The columns will contain the item(s)/node(s) in question. However, the column format requires the following steps i. First, select the item(s)/node(s), ii. Second, select the coders by clicking on “By Any Selected Users”, iii. Third, click “Select” to choose the coders by their initials, iv. Lastly, click “Add to List” 1. This will add each item by each coder as an individual column. c. Click Apply to save the above procedures d. Click Run to produce the Matrix Coding table, e. Export the data into Excel, f. For SPSS, i. format the data as per the SPSS procedures g. For a web based utility, you will need to save each item in as single CSV file following the procedures as outlined by (Freelon, D. 2010; 2013). http://dfreelon.org/utils/recalfront/ References Freelon, D.

  2. Hello Everyone, I am working with NVivo 10 on Windows to examine policies in archival government texts. I am interested in determining and quantifying the focus of the policies. The texts are scanned pdfs (n=40) and each pdf may contain as few as 8 policies to over 110 policies. In addition, the coding has been largely executed by region. For my analysis, using 7 Parent nodes and over100 child nodes, I analyze each policy for the presence of any of the children. At this point, I need to employ a second User in order to obtain an inter-rater statistic. In my social science field, Percent Agreement is not frowned on and researchers are moving away from Cohen's alpha. A journal referee is pointing to Krippendorff's alpha. Because books are the units of analysis, the ideal solution would be a matrix query with the books as rows, the users as columns, filter the results by child nodes, then export into excel for the Kripp analysis. Having both users in the same project would allow for reconciliation of coding disagreements. Is this possible as I understand the NVivo counts all Users in coding frequency? If not, then how should I proceed with introducing my second User and obtaining a subsequent Kripp analysis. thx dr-m
