RE: Qualitative Data Analysis Program

Karen,

I appreciate your response but I have been told that there are major
differences between Qualitative and Quantitative programs and a qualitative
data analysis program is required for the class the student is taking.  This
is area new to me but Atlas.ti is the preferred program. 

Anyone else ever use this with JAWS?  Or maybe  NVivo,  HyperResearch and
MAXqda?

Kevin

I'm not sure why they are using the term "qualitative data" as they are.
Quantitative data is that which has an infinite number of possible
responses, i.e. points on a number line. Qualitative data is that which has
a limited number of responses such as yes-no responses or points on an
ordinal scale i.e. rate from 1-10. SAS and SPSS analyze both quantitative
and qualitative data. All of my students, both graduate and undergraduate
use either SAS or SPSS for all statistics and experimental psychology
classes I teach. At this point, it is unclear as to the type of analysis you
wish to do.

 

Good luck,

Karen

My understanding is that SAS is a Quantitative software package.  I am
looking for qualitative data analysis accessibility.  I pulled the following
from a Web site:

 

You've probably heard of software packages such as SPSS, SAS and MiniTab
that are used for analyzing quantitative data. But, what do we do when our
data consists of hundreds of pages of text and images? Researchers can
choose to use qualitative data analysis software such as NVivo, Atlas.ti,
HyperResearch and MAXqda. 

 

Anyone have any experience with NVivo, Atlas.ti, HyperResearch, or MAXqda
with JAWS?

Kevin,

I've not used the program you are asking about but I can tell you that SAS
works fine with Jaws. I went all the way through the Ph.D. program at the
University of Oklahoma using it with no problems. It will do absolutely
anything and SAS provided me with all the documentation -- volumes and
volumes -- in accessible format.

 

HOpe this helps a bit,

Karen

I am working with a student who is using Jaws and she wants to use a
Qualitative Data Analysis Program such as Atlas.ti.  Does anyone know
whether Atlas.ti or a similar program works with JAWS?

Thank you in advance,

Kevin
