  • Coding demographic information to nodes.
  • Coding individual respondents' information to nodes.
  • Using text styles to ingest textual responses to questions for autocoding.
  • Querying survey and interview data using NVivo tools.

The room will be open at 1 p.m. on for this event. All are welcome. The presenter will use the Windows version of the software. No RSVP is required. If there are any questions, please contact shalin@k-state.edu or call 785-532-5262.
