Data Analysis and Theory Building

1- Data Analysis Write a description of data analysis methods (2 pages). For the data analysis method discussion, please include the following:
• Discuss and justify your coding techniques with your research questions. • Discuss the strengths of your coding techniques • Discuss the limitations of your coding techniques • Develop a table for coding categories for the pilot study data o A table for coding categories contains types of open coding categories, definitions and examples based on your research questions. • Calculate Inter-coder reliability. You can ask one of your classmates to serve as another coder for your data analysis. • Try to use NVivo to code your pilot study data or sample data. Optional.
2- Theory Building Write a description of your theory building process (2 pages). For your theory building discussion, please include the following: Describe your grounded theory methodology step by step. Develop a theory for your research topic based on the analysis of the results of the pilot study and expected results. o Please provide a diagram and associated discussion to illustrate the theory. specify the following:
3
A central phenomenon (or central categories) – results from open coding, holds the most conceptual
interest, and is most frequently discussed by participants

3
Causal conditions that cause or influence the central phenomenon to occur Specific strategies or actions that result from phenomena The context – the particular set of conditions within which the strategies occur (specific in nature) Intervening conditions – broader conditions (broader than context) that influence the strategies (political,
social, economic, etc.)
3
Consequence Discuss what needs to be done the next step in order to build a theory if your research questions do not offer all the data for theory building
