Content analysis in educational research: A review of the current forms
Languages of publication
A range of methodological influences caused that content analysis obtained various forms and that its current concept is complicated. The aim of this methodological paper is to describe its current forms as identified in relevant literature. In the chapters of the paper, constitutive components of content analysis are characterized. These components are as follows: types of content, types of sampling, depth of analysis, direction of analysis, types of control of coding, and modes of presentation of findings. The paper shows how these components are manifested and how they relate. The main conclusion of the paper is confirmation of inadequacy of division of content analysis into two counterparts, quantitative and qualitative. Rather it is worthwhile to assess the specific manifestation of constitutive components in each study in which content analysis was used.
