Coding in The Observer XT

The coding scheme or ethogram is a key step in measuring observed behaviours and will determine what you can do with your data later.  Often it can be tempting to log everything, however a more targeted approach towards answering your research question(s) can mean a smaller amount of behaviours to score giving a more reliable outcome and making data collection much quicker.
