Although one important feature in is the coding function, also at we hole-heartedly support the statement that “Analysis is more than coding”. Software is simply a tool that supports the data analysis process by helping you to find what you are looking for, to retrieve data in all kinds of ways, to help you think and to work with your data. What cannot help you with is to decide on the overall approach that you want to use for your analysis. Should it be an inductive approach, a deductive approach, or a mixture of both? Do you want to combine elements of qualitative and quantitative data analysis?
Thus, analysis is more than coding and still largely dependent on the person sitting in front of the computer using thesoftware me end this section with a quote from the manual:

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the AERA Grants Program announces its Dissertation Grants competition. The program seeks to stimulate research on . education issues using data from the large scale, national and international data sets supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), NSF, and other federal agencies, and to increase the number of education researchers using these data sets. The program supports research projects that are quantitative in nature, include the analysis of existing data from NCES, NSF or other federal agencies, and have . education policy relevance.
Following this structured presentation the committee begins to ask questions, but as can be expected the questions follow along with the wall charts and the whole discussion proceeds in an orderly manner. If guests are present at the defense, this form of presentation helps them also follow along and understand exactly what was accomplished through the research.
Let the literature be your guide. A thorough literature review is the best starting point for choosing your methods, Heppner advises, because evaluating previous researchers' efforts can suggest a path to answer your own research question.
Objective Hermeneutics was developed by Oeverman, a German scholar and former student of Habermas. It is a method of interpreting textual dataproviding an explicit, rule-governed procedure. The aim is to go beyond subjective meanings detecting the objective connotation, the so called latent sense structure behind the data. Similar as in ethnomethodology, personal motives and intentions are not important.
“… the program author makes no claims whatever to havingproduced a program that will perform miracles for your research –you still have to have the ideas and the gifts to do exceptionalresearch.”
Well that about does it. By following the above suggestions and ideas I hope it will be possible for you to finish your graduate degree program in a most timely and enjoyable manner. By looking ahead to the different aspects of this final part of your graduate study it becomes clear that you can do a number of things to insure your success. Good luck!
These awards support research activities related to preparation of a dissertation and do not support study leading to the ., ., ., or similar professional degrees unless they are part of a combined degree program.
8. Try not to be overly influenced at this time by what you feel others expect from you (your colleagues, your profession, your academic department, etc.). You have a much better chance of selecting a topic that will be really of interest to you if it is your topic. This will be one of the few opportunities you may have in your professional life to focus in on a research topic that is really of your own choosing.
