Flashcards in Grounded Theory Deck (18):
1

Data Collection and Analysis

Done together in GT

2

Definition

Clear, coherent, meaningful

3

Inductive Approach

Open and Exploratory

4

Social Constructive View

How people feel, the importance of social situations and how we construct the world meaningfully, how knowledge is constructed and understood - not created; epistemological

5

Types of Coding

Initial beforehand and Focused coding which is after and more focused

6

Type of Coding that answers Question

Focused Coding

7

Strauss

Step by Step guide to coding

8

Glasser

Theory emerges purely from the data

9

Charmaz

Constructionist approach of both Strauss and Glasser, considering reflexivity. Looking at action and influence of the researcher. Theories do not emerge, they are constructed by the researcher through interaction with the data

10

Systematic Characteristics of Grounded Theory

Systematic process, coding can be done, theoretical coding can be done, constant comparison method and form memos for guidance

11

Literature Review

Look at existing literature by what is known by the majority and common sense.

12

Code Characteristics

Easy to emerge, central, difficult to get to, connected to other codes easily and answers the question

13

Abbreviated Grounded Theory

When people are difficult to find. purely work by data only, used when time and resource constraints – cannot use triangualtion

14

Category Saturation

When new information can no longer emerge from the code

15

Memos Use

Guide thoughts; ideas and points in the development of codes

16

Grounded Theory Limitations

Not driven by theory, can miss data that is already available and can alienate researchers to new topics

17

Evaluating Grounded Theory

Is it a robust explanation, how useful is the theory, can it be generalized, does it make sense

18

Increase Reflexivity

Documentation through analysis and data collection to show researcher's assumptions, values, sampling decision, analytic technique, context interpretations >> how they shaped the research
