CHROMACODE: A Conceptual and Pedagogical Tool in Qualitative Data Analysis.
Radnofsky, Mary L.
CHROMACODE is a conceptual tool that uses systematic, logical, and visual processes for organizing and analyzing qualitative research findings for the researcher with relatively low technical knowledge of data analysis. It can best be described as a visual conceptual scheme with coding based on a color-dependent procedure. Color provides a sense of the variety of responses given in a category on a single theme. Collected and discussed data are transcribed onto colored paper, using a different color for each respondent and families of complementary colors for related groups. This provides a visual organizational scheme for further comparisons and coding in composite files in a computer. Such conceptual organizing facilitates broader analysis and reporting.
