Projects / queXC


queXC is a Web-based data cleaning and coding/classification system that takes a data file (such as data collected from a questionnaire) and cleans the text input fields by spacing them and spell checking them. It allows operators to code text fields to existing coding schemes, or to create a coding scheme on the fly. Multiple operators can code and clean simultaneously, with the ability to assign operators to do particular codes. The queXC system includes some coding schemes created from ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) data. It can be used as an open source replacement for Nvivo in some situations.

        Release Notes: You can now code to multiple columns (multiple choice coding) and assign portions of the text to a code by simply selecting it in the browser window. A search feature has been added for searching inside classification schemes. An administrator can update the data description (question labels, response labels). A keyword correspondence feature allows you to automatically classify a field based on the details of another. Also, operators can see their performance in comparison with other operators while working.
