"MaxQDA lets you easily handle and code qualitative data"

What do you like best?

MaxQDA is really helpful software for working with data for qualitative research. The interface is fairly intuitive. it's easy to load documents and accepts lots of file types including images. Codebooks are relatively easy to set up. You highlight text and then drag and drop to code which supports easy coding. There is some ability to work in teams by merging projects or important just parts of a project like new codes or coded documents.

What do you dislike?

The teamwork options are not as seamless as they could be. You have to set up coding in a particular way or merges do not work properly. We find there are not as much functionality as we would like when comparing coding results between different coders. also it would be ideal to have an option where you support easier cross-coding by keeping the same units of text the first coder chose but removing information about what they coded that segment as.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider what your needs are with qualitative coding. There are other coding softwares out there, but I believe most have fairly similar functionality.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MaxQDA allows for much faster coding than older methods using pen/highlighters and paper. A lot of additional time is saved during iterative coding and combining results among multiple coders. There's also a lot of tutorials and other materials online available for troubleshooting because it's a widely-used software for this purpose.

"Good for interviews"

What do you like best?

MAXQDA is colorful, making it "fun" to work with. You can reorganize codes and even mark them with symbols or different colors. The program will auto code according to excel columns and formatting. It is also easy to assign variables using an excel table or change codes to variables. Moreover, you can search for a word or phrase and code either just the word or the surrounding sentences. The package that includes the dictionary and statistics represents good value for money.

What do you dislike?

MAXQDA can't deal with xml tagging in the sense that it isn't possible to automatically assign variables based on tags or only search certain parts of a file. It also lacks a feature which would automatically combine marking if, e.g., the same word appears twice in the same sentence. Finally, it can't import emails.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Think about the type of data you will be using and what you will want the product for. It is great for some types of research, but other research questions it doesn't handle so well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Qualitative Data analysis of interviews and various types of discourse for academic research projects. I would have worked well with the interviews, but not the more complicated projects with large amounts of textual data..

What Data Visualization solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Works well!"

What do you like best?

This program made coding quick and efficient. I liked that you can color code the codes and also use shortcuts to put them in!

What do you dislike?

A downside of using MaxQDA was that it had to be purchased for each individual laptop (as far as i am aware) and so we were limited to coding on just one device.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MaxQDA has help with analyzing data and seeing whether or not my program has made an impact!
