Qualitative Data Coding
Sitting with piles of interview transcriptions (or other qualitative data) and dreading the time-consuming task of coding it all? Grad Coach can take care of that.
What does this service involve?
Our qualitative data coding service takes the time-consuming task of coding off your plate, allowing you to focus your time and effort on analysis, interpretation and writing. Simply provide us with your interview transcriptions (or have us transcribe them for you) and we’ll take care of the coding, in line with your research methodology.
How does it work?
While every project is unique, the process is typically as follows:
- First, we have an initial call (or email correspondence) to understand your project and specific requirements.
- You then send us your interview transcriptions (or your audio files, which we’ll transcribe for you).
- We then review the qualitative data and consult with you to develop a coding structure. This is a collaborative process.
- Once we’ve agreed on the coding structure, we’ll get to work coding the data and then deliver the coded data to you (various formats available).
You’re welcome to build onto the existing coding structure as you wish. Your thinking will likely develop as your analysis proceeds, so this is quite natural.
Can you do the qualitative analysis for me?
The short answer – no. Qualitative research requires the researcher to play an active role in the analysis, and your interpretation of the data is key – so we can’t do this for you. We can assist you with the analysis process on a coaching basis (i.e. provide guidance and feedback), but the analysis work must be your own. Straight-out outsourcing of qualitative analysis typically constitutes academic misconduct, which we strongly condemn.
How much does it cost?
Since every project is different, we price on a case by case basis. Please submit your details below and we’ll contact you to schedule a no-obligation consultation. Based on this, we will propose a plan of action and quotation.
