  1. I may be displaying my ignorance here, but is it possible to link early codes that drive the formation of a model directly to a nascent model to enable follow up at a later stage? Searching the fora has not been successful in clarifying this. Please pardon my naivety if this is a silly question. Mathew Australia
  2. Hi, I'm currently coding a library survey. Most of the fields are closed questions - participants selected an option from a dropdown list. I only have one "Comments" field that's open. I've created nodes and applied them to the comments field, and then auto-coded the closed questions. What I'm trying to do now is to get ALL demographic data (user group, discipline, branch, age, sex) to show up along with all of the comments coded at a certain node (all comments related to "eResources", for example). I need to pass on all the comments related to eResources to my colleagues, who need to see the demographics of the user that made the comments. I can pull up the node view of just eResources, and then track them back to the demographic info by highlighting and clicking "Open Referenced Source" on a right-click. Instead of having to go back to the reference source, Is there a way to include the demographic info from the source alongside each reference in the node view? This seems like nVivo should be able to handle easily, but I've had a heck of a time figuring it out. I've searched around and can only find this: http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.php?showtopic=4723&hl=%2Bdataset+%2Bcoding#entry13147. It doesn't really help me, as I want demographics for all coded text bits, not just to search for eResources AND a specific demographic. Any assistance would be much appreciated! Thanks, Kathleen
  3. I am beginning the second cycle of data analysis. Several nodes have been created in the first cycle. I need to keep the cycles separate. What's the best way to ensure that I can view only cycle 2 data (and nodes) or only cycle 1, or only cycle 3? Thanks!
  4. I have coded three interview scripts by creating nodes. For example, all three interview scripts (or articles) have some text coded generically under the node interview question one. I then went into each script and have done some detailed coding creating nodes. When I then open the interview question one node, I would like to see all the other detailed nodes which have been applied to it. However, when I go into the view coding section it only allows me to see the most recent or most dense nodes and not all of them. Is there a way just to get it to show me all the nodes just applied to the text that comes up in the interview question one node? If I say I want to see the most recent 50 nodes, it shows me the last 50 nodes which I created and not the ones that just apply to the text I am looking at. I have over 500 nodes in total, so I really need help!
  5. Hi, I'm new to Nvivo software. Did a test run before starting, coded data and did a word query. Everything worked fine then started coding my transcripts. Then when I tried to run a word query it did so on all text not just words I coded. I noticed that in the trial run I did word query on a internal source, straight manuscript instead of transcript in audio file. Should this make a difference or is there something I am doing wrong when running the word frequency query? I need to organise the information under the nodes I have created into tables and graphs to compare the data. A generic example: positive node (number of words coded) vs negative node. Thanks

    "Cluster" Nodes

    I think it would be valuable to be able to "cluster" nodes. Essentially you would pair up one or more branches of tree nodes and then when you coded something at this "cluster" you would have to select sub-nodes from each branch. Below is an example to make it clearer. Imagine that I have the following tree nodes: Refers To Refers To \ Student Work A Refers To \ Student Work B Adequacy Adequacy \ Adequate Work Adequacy \ Inadequate Work And for methodological reasons I only code complete sentences. Then in one of my pieces of data someone says "Yeah student work A was pretty good, but student work B really needed more." This would get coded with all four nodes, but that would be completely unhelpful. Instead I'd like to code it once at (Student Work A AND Adequate Work) and then again at (Student Work B AND Inadequate Work). So the "cluster" would be that I could somehow "cluster" the "Refers To" nodes and the "Adequacy" nodes. Then when I coded something at this "cluster" I would have to select sub-nodes within each branch. Currently, to get around this what I end up doing is creating "duplicate" sub-nodes, so my tree nodes actually end up looking like this: Adequacy Adequacy \ Adequate Work Adequacy \ Adequate Work \ Student Work A Adequacy \ Adequate Work \ Student Work B Adequacy \ Inadequate Work Adequacy \ Inadequate Work \ Student Work A Adequacy \ Inadequate Work \ Student Work A This often results in either very unclear nodes (for instance "Student Work A" means two different things above) or very long names for nodes (for instance, I call the sub-node "Adequate - Student Work A").
