This article will consider how accurate and suitable a kaleidoscope metaphor is as a key scheme for the qualitative research data in order to be organized and analyzed. Besides, not only a general overview of the comparison method would be provided (including processes as categorization, comparison, inductive analysis, and refinement of data bits and categories) but also the graphic representation would be dealt with throughout these pages.
