Aboriginal Inquiry: Lifting All Learners

An Impact Assessment of the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN)

3.6.3 Phase 3

The researcher and research assistant read individually all of the interview data, coding for dominant themes as they read. They then shared their coding with each other, and created a common set of themes. We combined these themes into the list generated by the AESN advisory board. In total we generated about 44 themes. From this larger list of themes, we created broader headings that represented promising practices in the literature reviewed and that could be used to capture the 44 themes. These broader headings where used to organize our approach to creating the section of the document entitled Network Impact.
