Codebook and Coding – First-Tier Codes

Create a Codebook.

 Create a codebook and code using one of the following options. Option One Use at least 2 first-tier codes, 4 second tier codes, and 8 third-tier codes. Option Two Use at least 4 first-tier codes and 8 second-tier codes (no third-tier codes required if you choose this option).The codebook does not have to include definitions for each code but just the code name (like we did in class).B. Code at least two transcripts in their entirety (you can use your transcript and one of your groupmate’s transcripts, or code 2 transcripts of people in your group). Your coding does not need to be exhaustive in that you don’t need to assign a code to every piece of text. However, you are to read each text in full and assign the codes in your codebook to the relevant places’.

Make an analysis spreadsheet If you chose Option One in IIIA, then select one second-tier code for analysis and compile text excerpts related to this code on a spreadsheet If you chose Option Two in step IIIA then select one first-tier code for analysis and compile text excerpts related to this code on a spreadsheet .IV.

Be sure to include at least one quote from an interview. (About 200-300 words)V. Assignment Submission Compile (in this order in a single document) the following:(a) interview guide(b) two coded transcripts(c) codebook(d) excel code analysis sheet (this can be separate if you cannot merge the excel document)(e) memo VI.
