You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized.

Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

NRS 434 Shadow Health Focused Exam Cough Results

Qualitative data have been described as voluminous and sometimes overwhelming to the researcher. Discuss two strategies that would help a researcher manage and organize the data.

JANAE

In qualitative research, non-numerical data are gathered and analyzed to better comprehend ideas, viewpoints, or experiences. It might be utilized to discover intricate details about an issue or come up with new research ideas or concepts.

To analyze qualitative data, transcripts are analyzed and compare or contrast before identifying themes and creating categories. The goal of qualitative research is to provide a thorough account of some event or unit using a number of techniques, such as in-depth interviews or in-depth analysis of historical sources (Aspers & Corte, 2019).

The qualitative material is vast and occasionally overwhelming. Two methods that would aid in managing and organizing the data for a researcher are creating a clear identification system and coding. For example, when a clear identification system is obtained the researcher can more easily categorize the files and folders by giving it a consistent name.

Overall, the method of classifying and labeling related data types in order to facilitate the creation of themes and data analysis allows for simple retrieval in data. Coding is the process of categorizing and identifying related data kinds to make it easier to develop themes and conduct data analysis.

Coding is the process of dissecting qualitative text data to examine what it can reveal before reassembling the data in a meaningful fashion (Elliott, 2018). It helps organize data as researchers dissect the data collected to produce new knowledge. It makes it easier for researchers to better evaluate and compile the research into a whole set of findings.
