Abstract

Content analysis corresponds to a set of techniques through which a group of data can be analyzed. It is widely used in qualitative research, especially in investigations in the field of education, as it is a very effective way of understanding the content, not always manifest in a discourse (whether it be a text, a gesture, or the utterance of a phrase, that is, any form of communication). Thus, the objective of this article is to describe the method and techniques of content analysis from the perspective of Bardin (2016) and its contributions and limitations to qualitative approaches in education. This research presents a qualitative perspective, of the bibliographical type, of an interpretative nature, carried out in articles and books that deal with the subject. Content analysis, from Bardin's perspective, offers several important contributions to qualitative research in education, including a systematic and rigorous analysis of data, a deeper understanding of the phenomena studied, a flexible and adaptable approach, the possibility of identifying gaps in the literature, and data triangulation. The main limitations of content analysis for qualitative research in education include the risk of reductionism, subjectivity in the construction of categories, difficulty in dealing with non-textual data, and limitations in generalizing results. It is important for the researcher to be aware of these limitations when using content analysis in their research.
