"If you don't like using your mouse or fingerpad, you don't need to if you use CAT. Dragging [a mouse] is...a drag."
"I would strongly support researchers CAT usage and would encourage them to contact the administrator to further improve the program."
"CAT is a great tool to use for research projects. It enables coders to work in an efficient manner in which accuracy can be measured constructively."
"I've already recommended it to several colleagues. I tell folks it is the best, easiest way to compare coding in multi-coder teams."
"Great for text, doesn't work for video (yet). Make sure you know what it is giving you before trying to use it (as with any statistical analysis program)."
"Do it! :)"
"It is a great and easy way to code and analyze data"
"Other qualitative researchers: This is a great program. Read about it, then use it!"
"It is pretty easy to use, and free....we have already started telling our colleagues about it and assisting them with it."
"It's a great way to file / classify / code and memo data."
"It's simple; it's free."
"I would say it's an excellent tool for coding discrete data, such as open-ended survey responses."
"CAT is ideal for de-contextualized coding, and for coding self-contained units or those documents where you're not necessarily concerned with where in the document a theme occurs, only that it does in fact occur."
"The fact that it's Web-based makes it very accessible, and it has a very experienced and reliable team supporting it."
"It provides a number of different handy analytic tools. In one package it allows you to do coding, validation, and other analyses."
"If you have the right type of data, especially data in the form of a series of discrete units of text, it allows you, and more importantly any number of coders (needing only limited expertise in the use of CAT) to code your data very quickly."
"It's a good resource for making sure a large team of coders don't drift"
