Pre-Conference Workshop: Qualitative Data Management and Analysis Using NVIVO on Wednesday, 13th March 2019
The use of qualitative data in decision making has been ineffective simply because M&E professionals are afraid of the process to summarize or find relevant quotes in substantial amounts of qualitative data thus finding themselves incapable of working in fields that entirely deal with qualitative data. NVIVO is the leading tool for Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDAS). The use of NVIVO to eradicate this fear will enable M&E professionals to code, explore qualitative data and run visualizations.
Specifically, the workshop will:
i. Improve participants knowledge & understanding of Qualitative data
ii. Improve practical skills for qualitative data management, analysis and Visualization Using NVIVO
iii. Share knowledge and experiences in qualitative M&E data analysis
The training will cover three sessions;
Session 1 – Introduction to NVIVO & its concepts
• Qualitative Data and Methods

• NVIVO Key terms, interface, workspace and ribbons
Session 2: Importing, Coding Documents and Categorizing Data
• Importing documents
• Creating ‘nodes’ and type of nodes to collect data to support the themes, topics or ideas you identify in the data
• Creating memos and links
• Creating Attributes within NVivo and importing Attributes from a Spreadsheet
• Getting Results; Coding Query and Matrix Query
Session 3: Visualizing NVIVO project
