Project Description/Abstract

In mathematics education research, the usefulness of video-taping semi-structured interviews in qualitative research has been well established in previous research. With the increased use of video-taping, how to create transcripts that reflect the verbal and physical interaction that occurs during the interview process and how to make sense of this data has become an issue. This project will begin by reporting on the ways qualitative researchers have created transcripts and analyzed video data in previous research. The remainder of the project will describe the technique of writing flow transcripts, which I developed while writing my dissertation, and how these unique transcripts may be used in qualitative data analysis.
