Use a qualitative analysis software like MAXQDA to code and analyze the transcriptions of the interviews. The MAXQDA software can be accessed at www.maxqda.com . Determine patterns in coded data (transcribed Interview and one other form of data collected), and write analytic memos. You will use initial coding, process coding, and axial coding to analyze the transcriptions from the five interviews. You also will write three brief analytic memos, describing the codes, categories, and themes generated during the date analysis process. The first memo should be written at the beginning of the data collection period after you conduct Interview #1, transcribe the interview questions and responses, and code the transcription using MAXQDA software. The second memo should be written during the middle of the data collection period–you will write the second analytic memo after you conduct Interview #2 and Interview #3, transcribe the interview questions and responses, and code the transcriptions using MAXQDA software. The third memo should be written at the end of the data collection period–you will write the third analytic memo after you conduct Interview #4 and Interview #5, transcribe the interview questions and responses, and code the transcriptions using MAXQDA software.This assignment will include the coded, transcribed interview responses and one additional form of coded data collected (e.g. questionnaire, observation, etc.). This assignment also will include three analytic memos written at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of the data collection period, respectively. In these memos, you will describe the codes and categories generated, and you also will include information related to emergent patterns, categories, themes, and assertions. Sample is attached.
