Illustrative Coding Guide for Learning Styles Analysis

     

Basic data

Source Identify the type of publication for this entry.
Coder Identify yourself
Coding date Give the date you entered these data. Use the last two digits of the year, two digits for the month (e.g., February would be "02"), and two digits for the day of the month (e.g., 4 would be "04"). For example, if you coded the study on 5 Jan 2005, you would enter 05, 01, and 05 in the following fields.
  1. Year
  2. Month
  3. Day

Research question

RQ Enter the research question for the study. State it in the "whether..." form.

Source data

Citation Enter the short form of the citation. Examples:
  • Smith, 1980
  • Smith & Jones, 1981
  • Smith et al., 1982
If you know that there is more than one entry that will take this short form, add identifying letters according to APA rules (e.g., Smith, 1981a; Smith, 1981b). If you think there is a chance that the citation for this study might be confused with the citation for another study, put an asterisk next to the year (e.g., Smith et al., 1982*).
Reference Enter the complete citation, according to APA style. Do not use italics or other special fonts. If you copy the citation from a word-processing document, make sure you copy it as text so that control characters won't contaminate the database.
