Issues in Qualitative Analysis and Reporting (H6)


On the recent Survey on Evaluation Training Needs and Preferences (2013), CES members continued to show high interest in training for qualitative data analyses (at an intermediate and advanced level). This workshop builds on a popular CES Webinar given in November 2013. Through a combination of brief lecture/discussions/demonstrations and hands-on exercises, this workshop will address issues that arise during analysis and reporting. The use of analysis software will be briefly demonstrated where appropriate.
