Advantages and Disadvantages of Pre-coding

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pre-coding

In this week’s reading from the course text Qualitative Data Analysis: An Expanded Sourcebook, the authors outline a pre-coding structure for data analysis. For this Discussion, you will analyze the pre-coding process and discuss its strengths and weaknesses.

To prepare for this Discussion:

• Miles & Huberman advocate developing a pre-coding structure for data analysis that is based on the conceptual framework and research questions on p. 58. To what extent can having such a structure help or hinder a researcher?
• Did you develop a pre-coding structure for your data collection tool test? Why or why not?
• Codes and themes are often embedded in the research questions, propositions (if any), and analytical assumptions. If I am doing a qualitative study about dropouts and youth at risk, codes relating to school performance, and problem behaviors and dispositions are pretty much a given.
With these thoughts in mind:
