Questions related to Qualitative In-Depth Interviews
Hello, I'm selecting a method for my master thesis and I'm considering doing a two-sample t-test or in-depth interviews. I have no idea about statistics, so I'm a bit hesitant to go this way. Could you please share your experience with these two methods? Particularly about:
- difficulty to pick up
- time needed to be spent
- anything I should know/beware before I choose one of these methods
In the end, I will of course select the method which is most suitable to answer my research questions, but I'd like to know what I'm putting myself into first. Thank you so much!
I am doing my disseration on workplace mentorship for millennials in Hong Kong. A very under-studied tpoic. It is a qualitative in-depth interview study focusing on mentor perspectives. Want to ask if measurement scales like GMMP, MFS, MCA etc are applicable only to quantitative survey questionnaire? If and how can I use exiting Quan scales to build my interview questions for 1-on-1 interviews with participants ? Or is it simply not suitable approach to apply QUAN scales to QUAL studies? Thank you very much
Someone told me that it is recommended to validate the qualitative questions to make it more reliable prior to the interview session with key informants.
Hi, I am conducting an exploratory research with qualitative in-depth interview approach to understand the impact of COVID_19 in health systems response to burn care in India. Since, this is a qualitative research with exploratory orientation, do I need to a opt for any theoritical framework, if yes then which theoritical framework fits into this question. You are also welcome to suggest suitable resource to guide me selecting best theorotical framework.
I am putting together a budget for a research grant, of which part will be carried out in Norway.
We will need to carry out about 60 qualitative in-depth interviews in the Oslo area.
Some work will also be needed in adapting the interview script to the Norwegian context.
Do you have any idea how much that may cost?
What about the cost of transcription?
I would be most grateful for your answers,
I am trying to find literature/studies about qualitative examination of TAM-Factors. So far I've found a ton of quantitative surveys but my approach wants to focus instead on qualitative in-depth-interviews. Specifically I want to find out if different cultural backgrounds influence the perception of the same mobile appilcation in a different way.
It seems as if qualitative surveys in this area are quite rare so my second question would be if there is a valid way to bundle the quantitative questions in some qualitative ones?
I've heard a lot about NVivo and Ethnograph. I'm looking into Maxqda also- I prefer a program with tech capabilities such as audio, transcription, apps etc...
I conduct expert interviews as my research method. However, more than a half of length of my dissertation is written about literature review. In this case, should I mention 'expert interview' as my only methodology, or should I also include 'literature review' as my research method (if it counts as a research method)?
I have designed a theoretical framework to assess and assist community Resilience building.I want to extract indicators from each of the components within the framework I proposed. Do you know examples of using Framework method(Jane Ritchie and Liz Spencer) to analyse data that has been guided by a theoretical framework? How do go about extracting indicators from this? It is all qualitative data and I will be analysing it in NVivo.
Could I get some help with my thesis and capstone project?
I have attached a link below of a survey that will help me collect data. If you have ever lived in the U.S. it counts. Please share with friends and family. If you are close with a household member and can fill it out for them accurately then you can take it twice, or should be able to.
Please take the survey titled "Use of Residence in Relation to Routine(s):". Your feedback is important! If you have ever lived in the United States it counts. You are welcome to take it for other individuals you can accurately answer to. Please share afterwards. I am hoping for a minimum of 100 surveys
Feel free to critique and discuss questions and thoughts. The survey is anonymous but any comment is welcome.
I realize that the survey is very compact and could have been more direct but as most online surveys, like survey monkey, there is a limit to what I can do without paying fees that I cannot pay at this time. The narrative format would require me to do some of my own diagramming thus any detail is welcome.
I hope that the option of detail allows a fuller response than being forced to critique something personal into a category that cannot be specifically identified.
I am conducting semi-structured interviews, field observations and focused group discussions for my study. I would like to know the most suitable, user-friendly and convenient software for such type of data analysis. Many thanks in advance!
Semi-structured guide is often used in qualitative studies. I am wondering if there are any standard method to face validate the guide.
What should be examined in the face validation of semi-structure interview guide?
Please share your valuable insights.
Can I use the Life course as chronological perspective to analyse migrant trajectories of migrant women and do it through the method of semi-structured interview?
My doubt: Or must I use the narrative methods or life history as mandatory?
Thank you in advance!
Is analysing the qualitative data (interview texts) manually still in trend? Any software suggestion for the same? What are the advantages and disadvantages of analysing manually and through software?
I conducted survey and in-depth interviews, but one interview took form of a long narrative, a deep insight into the research question. how to justify this in my methodology chapter?
Bioghraphical Narrative Interpretative Method (BNIM) is a qualitative method, a mix of in depth interviews and narratives (story telling). Could anybody give some methodological references/bibliographicasl references, please?
I am trying to choose a method to analysis semi-structured interviews within midwifery, where I really need to understand the individual experience deeply and perhaps identify themes. Both these methods seem potentially appropriate. Any thoughts regarding the methods and the required sample sizes would be helpful.
I need a reliable qualitative instrument for website data analysis and so far it's the only free tool I have found to perform coding, aggregation, query and visualization. Any feedback or alternative suggestions would be appreciated.
I will be conducting a qualitative study for my dissertation and need to find experts in the field to assess my interview questions. Is there anyone here who might be willing to do that?
I'm planning to do a research for my master thesis. however, I have a problem with one of my advisers. I intend to use qualitative design with research problems derived from previous studies gaps. unfortunately, my adviser do not agree with it. he said that a qualitative research must be based on preliminary data I've collected and theories or relevant research are used as the supporting items instead of as a background of research construction. any one can help me? I need references (if any) to prove my point of view.
I have data from two samples (community and clinical/service sample) of adolescents who completed psychological evaluations, and I would like to: (1) determine how well the instrument used for these evaluations is able to discriminate between these two samples.(2) to use the ROC analyses to determine the optimum cut-off for differentiating between the community and clinical/service sample. The dataset has 2 other variables: gender and age. Is this information enough to carry out ROC analysis? I attempted this analysis in stata and the AUCs (ranging from 0.518-0.578), seems to indicate that the performance of the scale was nothing more than chance. I am not sure but I assumed for the purpose of my analysis that the community sample is the negative sample( i.e. most likely to be without mental difficulties) and the clinical/service sample is the positive sample (i.e. most likely to be with mental difficulties). Is that correct? I would be grateful for any guidance on how to implement this model in stata and general advice on model testing.
I am currently conducting mixed method survey on caregiver's burden and coping responses on caring HIV people. The quantitative part will measure the burden and coping response of caregivers, meanwhile qualitative in-depth interview session will explore the burden and coping issues. The aim to conduct mixed method is to get complete clear picture of burden and coping issue, also to construct and support quantitative findings. Its confusing to choose the research design method, either triangulation or embedded, exploratory, explanatory. Can anyone advise me ?
Could you suggest the best tape and video recorders to be used for 1. observing students' interactions and 2. focus interviews?
I plan to interview a couple of experts in a field and find out which skills they consider most crucial for success in this field and how these skills can best be trained. Instead of speaking with these experts and then transcribing our conversations I consider doing the interviews in the frame of e-mail exchanges. Now I am wondering how such e-mail interviews can be done in a methodologically correct fashion. So I am grateful for direct recommendations or hints at good sources..! Cheers
I am a 6th year Clinical Psychology graduate student (PsyD) that is currently working on finishing my dissertation proposal, but am having some trouble finding recent research (5-10 years - or even any research from 2002 and up) on my population. My research method & approach is qualitative/phenomenological. I want to go about things from a Positive Psychology framework, therefore, I will be exploring other factors within population such as resiliency, Posttraumatic Growth (PTG theory), & protective/risk factors etc. Any and all answers & comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
Patient activation is a key concept which refers to people’s willingness and capacity to take on the role of managing their own health and health care.
Measuring patient activation is of value at the individual level (e.g. tailoring interventions) through to program evaluation (e.g. efficacy in enhancing activation).
Insignia Health's licenced "Patient Activation Measure" (PAM) is the dominant tool for measuring this - are there any others?
I am beginning a qualitative research project and unfortunately I will not be able to conduct face-to-face interviews with all the participants so will need to do some by phone. Any advice from others who have done this would be very much appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
Originally used for researching thought processes in architectural design, used lots since but usually analysed by "communication units" related to cognitive processes. Curious about whether it is possible to analyse reliably using qualitative methods...
I am going to be analysing up to 100 interviews, coding for different affects/emotions in the text. I need to find a good, simple, reliable programme. I will have to learn it myself, and then teach non-academics how to use it.
In an ongoing analyze and writing process according to a focus group study I have to be aware of how the interaction produced a depth of data. Further I have to find a way reporting this in the manuscript. What is your experiences and ways of dealing with this issue?
In my original qualitative research into 'Living with faecal incontinence' I looked at the 'insider's' view of living with this condition. This was a perspective understood by having experienced faecal incontinence, which could facilitate dialogue between people who found that they had had this in common; they did not feel stigmatised by talking about it and give advice of how they had coped. I am writing up a ten year follow-up, and found that even when people had similar ‘insider’ experience, homophily was also helpful (i.e. having other similarities to the other person). I cannot find much publicised data linking the two concepts. Thank you for any help you could give me.
I am interviewing football players about their perceptions of playing on different types of surfaces - real & artificial. They are quite difficult to get meaningful quotes from as they tend to go for very short answers. I have tried some cognitive interviewing techniques. Does anyone have any other suggestions to elicit longer answers, please? I am already asking open questions.
I have come across plural narratives while reviewing existing published and unpublished materials on communities that are facing challenges of displacement. I want to analyse them. Has there been any previous attempts?
I’m trying to conduct a research about early motherhood, but almost all what I found is focused on contraception, abortion or sexual-affective education. What about the teenage mothers themselves? Maybe a qualitative perspective about how do they feel, what do they think about early motherhood and what do they think about governmental support.
Current measures of parental reflective function are assessed by means of a long interview. The transcript is then coded with the aim of, among other things, avoiding giving credit for 'canned responses'. I would like to find a way to measure the extent to which answers to questions are being actively processed as opposed to being facile or stereotypical. I have looked at aspects of prosody (such as pauses) in a pilot study. Has anyone got any other ideas about how to measure this kind of active processing?
I will use semi-structured interviews for qualitative research and employ Atlas.ti 6 to analyze data. Atlas.ti 6 also has a transcription feature.
I am wondering whether as researchers we are culturally sensitive to our participants, context of our participants and context of our researches involving our participants in qualitative research.
How can researchers as sojourners be accepted in cross-cultural studies, psychology, assessment and research? How can I as a researcher minimise my influence in the generation of data and subsequent analysis and interpretation?
