Technological advances in the last twenty years have led to the development of powerful software for qualitative data analysis. Computer assisted qualitative data analysis (CAQDAS) packages facilitate managing multiple tasks in qualitative research, from organizing data sources based on relevant characteristics, segmenting and categorizing data according to themes, searching for and retrieving information, to building visual representations that more easily elicit significant patterns in the data. This chapter presents an introduction to the use of CAQDAS packages as tools that can greatly support qualitative research activities in chemistry education.
