How to handle interviews with multiple participants?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have created case nodes with demographic details for all of my interviewees, but I have a couple of interview transcripts from interviews I conducted with 2 people.

 

I saw an online tutorial that talks about auto-coding an interview using heading styles to make 2 case nodes for each interviewee, but you cannot auto-code on NVivo for Mac yet, so could you please tell me how can I do this?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Elisha

Hi Elisha,

 

 

As you mention, auto-coding is not yet available for NVIvo for Mac. What you will need to do is manually create two separate case nodes, one for each participant, and then manually code the interview for each one. I will mention to the product team your interest in auto-coding, however, so they can consider it for future releases.

 

 

Cheers,

Thank you very much for your response Simon. I've had a look, but I'm not really sure how to manuallty create separate case nodes, as on my screen under the "create" heading, the "Create as Case Nodes" is grey and I'm not able to click on it. Are there any you tube videos that show how to manually create case nodes or could you please give me step by step instructions?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Elisha

Hi Elisa,

 

 

Once you select a source/interview file, you should be to create a Case Node. You can right click on the interview file and click Create As>Create As Case Nodes. Please refer to the link below for more information:

I hope this helps.

Hi Bhupesh,

 

Thank you, but I know how to create case nodes for a source/interview file - I am wanting to know how to create case nodes for an interview file that contains 2 or more participants speaking in it - I know this has to be done manually on Mac, because auto coding does not exist, but a step by step of how to manually create individual case nodes for interviews that have multiple participants is what I am asking here!

 

Kind regards,

Elisha

Hi Elisha,

 

 

Please refer to the link below for more information about creating nodes manually:

Once you have created the nodes, you can code the participants' response to respective nodes. Please refer to various coding techniques below:

I hope this helps.
