How many coding levels can I create with the coding tree?

You can create three levels: roots, branches, and leaves. Each leaf is assigned a colour, allowing you to quickly identify the fragments in the text. You don’t have to create all the roots and branches of your tree to start coding; you can use orphan leaves that you will sort later.


Can I create independent variables in LiGRE?

Yes, even though there are no predefined independent variables in LiGRE, you can create your own very easily. You can create as many independent variables as you want.


How does coding work in LiGRE?

Data coding is done first by detailing the categories of analysis, or, as we call them in LiGRE, leaves. The researcher then reviews the data and assigns the leaves to fragments such as words, lines, or paragraphs. This is done simply by selecting the data directly in the text.


Can I access my audio and video data when I do the encoding?

Yes, LiGRE was designed to save you time. Once your automatic transcription is complete, you can replay the excerpts associated with a paragraph and edit the text as you code your data.
