Overview

Once the SportsCodeTM / StudiocodeTM CODA Template / CODA Form has been completed you are ready to begin coding an activity.

Click on the “Code” option on the CODA Toolbar to go to Code Mode. You will be offered a window to save your design work. We strongly recommend that you save your design work before you begin any coding activity.

The Coding Mode Toolbar illustrated below will appear and your CODA Form will be displayed in “opaque” format. This means that the Form contents will not be available to mark events on the Event Log until CODA is “Started”.

Note that no Popup Tag buttons will be displayed until the Event button they are associated with is activated. Popup Tag buttons will also disappear when their Event button is deactivated.

The “Coding Time” display identifies the elapsed time timeline that the coded events will be recorded against and it is also the reference point that will identify the coded events on the Event Log to the video footage of the activity in the SportsCodeTM / StudiocodeTM video analysis system.

In “greyed out” mode the buttons in the CODA Form are not active. They will become active once the coding session is started by clicking on the “START” button. The “START” and “STOP” buttons will start and stop the Event Log.

When you are coding an activity, a “Coding History” window will be displayed which will keep a sequential record of the Events coded, the start and end time of when an Event is “active” and a record of all tags activated which are associated with the recorded Events.

This window will sequentially record the Events which have been activated as they are activated, (either from the User pressing the Event button or as a result of a Link,) and display if an Event is still active. It will also record the start and end time on the timeline for each Event marked. You may choose whether or not to display the Coding History window by clicking on VIEW in the Main Menu and selecting “Show/Hide Coding History”.

The window will also record the information from each Tag and Popup Tag activated while the Event is active.

You are able to Edit your coded information at any time before you stop your coding session
by using the Coding History window. If you highlight a selected Event, any Tag and Popup Tag information attached to that Event will be displayed in the “Tags” window. You may delete (-) the Event which will also delete any supplementary information attached to the Event; and you may insert (+) an Event.

When you click the “+” button a list of Event buttons will be offered for your selection. You may also attach Tag and Popup Tag information to your added event by clicking on the “+” button in the “Tags” window and make a selection from the Tags offered.

You may also edit Tag history information in the same manner as Event history.

When the activity begins click on the “START” button on the Coding Toolbar.

The “Coding Time” display will begin recording the elapsed time. Code the events by clicking on the relevant Event buttons to activate them. These will mark the Event Log with the Event. Also record any Event descriptors set up as Popup Tags. Tags may also be activated which will add further description to all Events which are currently active. An Event must be active for any of the Popup Tag information to be captured. Any Links which have been included in your CODA Form architecture will also influence what is being marked on the Event Log.

It will take a little practice to become proficient at coding an activity. A coding operator may wish to alter some of the settings such as mat size and Time Lag as he/she becomes more familiar with using CODA .

When your coding session is over, select the “STOP” button on the Coding Toolbar.
