The main objective of this research is to reveal the current state of computer-assisted qualitative data analysis in Hungarian educational sciences on the basis of specialized literature that appeared between 2010-2017 in Hungarian-speaking areas. Data were obtained by using qualitative content analysis with a combined (deductive and inductive) logic. A list of codes was set up, and a priori coding was used. This was followed by an inductive analysis of the deep layers of the text segments. The results had been obtained in the following areas: information about software functions (1), using several types of software in the same qualitative analysis (2), and the relationship between courses in educational science and computer-assisted qualitative data analysis (3). The research has made it possible to draw parallels between the Hungarian qualitative methodological repertoire and international trends.
