LISA Nordic teams have been busy collecting data in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland this year and are happy to report that the data collection is now almost complete.
In a recent meeting in Helsinki, principal investigator and QUINT Director Kirsti Klette emphasised that:
We are interested in what teachers are doing, and not what they say they are doing. As a large scale video study Lisa Nordic Study allows us to investigate precisely this.
In preparation for the following data analysis, several new coders were trained and certified in using the PLATO system in August already. In combination with the PLATO training, Quint Director Kirsti Klette and postdoc Mark White conducted a pilot study on comparing how coders rate before and after the PLATO training.
Most recently the Iceland team have spent two intensive days preparing for data analysis. Finland will start their data collection in the spring 2020.
