Coding the research

I have been coding my research all week. I found a handy piece of software called QDA Minor Lite (

The software makes it much easier to label sections of text with a theme/code.  It also has the ability to produce reports based on user inputs.  I had originally intended to code manually by printing each sheet off and going through everything with a highlighter pen.  I think QDA is a far better option.  It will save me a bunch of time and will keep my data organized.

Most importantly, it gives me a chance to try out some new software which is something I always enjoy.
