What is nCoder?
nCoder is a learning analytics platform used to develop, validate, and implement automated classifiers. A powerful tool for transforming raw data into meaningful information, nCoder is designed specifically for working with big data: large document collections, logfiles, and other text data.
A critical component of any statistical analysis of text data is some form of coding scheme that identifies key concepts and clusters of terms in the data. To generate valid insights, however, this coding process has to be compared to the work of human raters. nCoder minimizes the amount of data that needs to be hand-coded by using cutting-edge statistical techniques to establish the reliability and validity of codes. Once codes are validated, nCoder automatically applies a coding scheme to larger datasets quickly and efficiently, even coding new data as it becomes available.
