Framework Analysis using NVivo (seminar)
- Wednesday 20 November 2013, 10am to 4pm
- Tuke Common Room, Regent's College, London, UK
- Open to:
- Public, Staff, Students
- Gareth Morrell, Meg Callanan, Tom Kenny and Silvana Di Gregorio
The Framework approach to analysing qualitative data was developed during the 1980s at the National Centre for Social Research (UK). It was originally a paper-based method that ordered data in a matrix table to facilitate within case and cross-case analysis. NatCen has collaborated with QSR to incorporate the Framework approach to data analysis in NVivo.
In this seminar speakers from both NatCen and other research organizations discuss framework method and how they have been using it within NVivo.
Introduction to Framework: An approach to qualitative data management - Gareth Morrell and Meg Callanan (NatCen)
This presentation will introduce the Framework approach to qualitative data management developed at NatCen Social Research within the context of an applied policy research institute. It will situate the approach within the wider context of qualitative data analysis approaches, and introduce the distinctive features of the Framework approach, including:
• the use of a thematic framework as a data management tool
• the use of summarisation to facilitate data management
• the use of a matrix output to facilitate thematic and explanatory analysis
The presentation will go on to illustrate how the Framework matrices feature in NVivo supports the approach, facilitating a robust, consistent and transparent approach to managing and analysing complex qualitative data.
Facilitating qualitative data analysis: Two approaches to using the Framework matrices feature in NVivo - Meg Callanan and Tom Kenny (NatCen)
This presentation will explore two alternative approaches to using the Framework matrices feature in NVivo, using examples from research studies conducted at NatCen Social Research.
The first part of the presentation will focus on using coding and auto-summarisation to facilitate the analysis of scoping study data. It will use examples from a recent study exploring financial support for 16 - 18 year old students, to explore the strengths and weaknesses of auto-summarisation of field notes.
The second part of the presentation will explore an alternative approach, using the full Framework approach to data management of a complex data-set. It will use examples from a study exploring gambling behaviour to illustrate the use of summarisation as an aid to data management, the use of node level attributes and the creation of search folders to facilitate analysis of complex data.
Interactive workshop session
Drawing on delegates’ experience of using the Framework approach, learnings from the morning's presentations and how they can be applied to delegates’ projects and further developments delegates would like to see in NVivo.
Beyond Framework: How the NVivo Framework tool can contribute to studies not using the Framework approach - Silvana Di Gregorio (QSR International)
In this session we take a look at the applications of the Framework tool in NVivo outside of using it specifically for the Framework approach.
The Framework tool can be useful in using NVivo to conduct a literature review, or in some circumstances it can be used as an alternative visualization of a Matrix Query. QSR International’s expert trainer will provide an overview to the most useful applications of this tool outside of the Framework approach.
