Abstract

This article presents a possibility of using Discursive Textual Analysis (DTA) with the use of CAQDAS (Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis Software), in particular, the Sphinx Lexica. It is a qualitative study based on an empirical research whose instrument of data collection is formed by a questionnaire applied to 24 high school teachers. It concludes that the application of DTA with CAQDAS offers a greater quality in the data analysis and enables new understandings of the phenomenon studied to emerge.
