Cannell, Charles F.; And Others
This manual describes a new coding technique to be used in training and supervising interviewers. Section A contains a brief description of the system, including information about its development and the rationale underlying the procedures, the purposes for which it is intended, and the ways in which it has been used. Section B contains descriptions of the codes, their uses, and the procedures for coding tape-recorded interviews. These chapters are directed toward those who train and supervise coders and those who will use the results for training and supervising interviewers. Section C consists of sample materials, including a basic, detailed manual for coders on coding tape-recorded interviews. This section also contains documentation for the computer program and information for interviewers on the use of tape recorders. (Author/MV)
