Motivation Quotation......

Aku meminta kepada Tuhan setangkai bunga, segar, Ia beri kaktus berduri. Aku minta kupu-kupu diberinya-Nya ulat berbulu. Aku sedih dan kecewa. Namun kemudian, kaktus itu berbunga indah sekali dan ulat itupun menjadi kupu-kupu yang sangat cantik. Itulah jalan Tuhan, indah pada masaNYA! Tuhan tidak memberi apa yang kita harapkan. Tapi Dia memberi apa yang kita perlukan. Kadang kala kita sedih, kecewa dan terluka. Tapi jauh di atas segalanya Dia sedang mengatur yang terbaik dalam kehidupan kita.............................................

Qualitative research

Three major components : (Becker,1970; Miles and Huberman,1984; Strauss and Corbin,1990)
1-Data - normally through interviews and observaions
2-Interpretive or analytical procedure-as techniques for conceptualize and data analyze
3-Report; either written or verbal- in the form of thesis or project

-mixture of the rational, explorative and intuitive
-often focused on social process and not on social structures
-skill need in qualitative research ~ thinking abstractly ~ stepping back and critically analyzing situations
~ recognizing and avoiding biases
~ obtaining valid and reliable information
~ having theoretical and social sensitivity & the ability to keep analytical
distance and in the same utilize past experience
~ shewd sense of observation and interaction(van maanen,1983; Strauss and
Corbin; cited in Ghauri et al,1995)

hi to both of you ladies,

I think AMOS is more to quan analysis..eventhough there are quali functions but not as extensive as NVIVO and NUDIST..i bet there are more qual software out there. for me the software brand is not important because the function is almost the same only a few differences here and there, other than that it is almost the same.

From my experience using qual sotware - NVIVO, is quit easy to operate but the problem is u must be firm and have good ability to map ur model. In qual approach, mapping or sometimes called modeling the model is a critical steps in analyzing ur data..

cheers
