Review the references in a node

When you open a node in Detail View the Reference tab is in focus. On this tab you can see all the references that have been coded at the node.

Reference View showing all content coded at a node.

1 Displays the name of the file that was coded at the node—including coding information (the number of references that were coded and the percentage of the file that the coding represents) open the original file, click the file hyperlink—underlined in blue.

2Displays the first reference that was coded in the file—including the percentage of the file that the reference represents. For example, a coded section might represent 80% of the overall document—this would indicate that most of the file has been coded at the node.

3 The Summary tab lists of all the files that have been coded at the node.

NOTE

  • If the node has aggregation turned on, the content will also include all the references from child nodes.
  • You can find specific words or phrases in the node.
  • Click the Expand button (at the top right of Detail View) to make more room for working with your data. Customize the work area

Understand how references are counted

On the Reference tab of a node, you can see the total number of references for each file. The total number of references is calculated based on coding done by all users—for example,  if two team members have coded the same content at the node, the coded content is counted as two references:

Understand how coding coverage is calculated

The method of calculation for coding coverage varies depending on the type of file:

File Type

Coverage calculation

Document

The percentage of characters coded at the node.

PDF

The percentage of characters coded (as text selections) at the node, and the percentage of the page area coded (as region selections) at the node.

Dataset

The percentage of characters coded at the node—only characters in codable columns are counted when calculating the percentage.

Audio or video

The percentage of the timespan coded at the node, either directly or indirectly (by coding the transcript).   When you code content in the transcript:

  • The timespan of the transcript row is used to calculate coverage. So, if a row has a five-minute timespan and only the first sentence is coded to the node, the coverage is based on five-minute duration.
  • If a transcript row is not associated with a specific timespan—in other words, if timespan field for the row is blank— the coverage is calculated as 100%.

Picture

The percentage of pixels coded at the node, either directly or indirectly (by coding the log).   When you code content in the log:

  • The region of the picture that corresponds to the entire log row is used to calculate coverage. So, if a row represents a region that is 25% of the entire picture, no matter how much content in that row is coded to the node, the coverage is always 25%.
  • If a picture log row is not associated with a particular region—in other words, if the region field for the row is blank—the coverage is calculated as 100%.

NOTE  If the node has aggregation turned on, then coding at any child nodes is included when calculating coverage.

Work with the content in a node

As you review the references in the node, you may want to view more of the context, or make changes to the coding.
