Qualitative data analysis involves identifying themes and making meaning of non-numerical data, like results from focus groups, interviews, and open-ended survey questions. The meaning you make of qualitative data should seek to answer the evaluation questions you determined in your evaluation plan. Qualitative data analysis does not need to be complicated; it can be as simple as reviewing a transcript and underlining quotes with a pen.
