Tagging is the process of assigning a tag to each criterion in a methodology.

There are similarities between this process of tagging and the Grounded theory approach to sociological research. Indeed, some of the disputes in Grounded theory have their reflections in benchmarking disputes about creation or use of criteria.

As Wikipedia notes:

  • According to Kelle (2005), "the controversy between Glaser and Strauss boils down to the question whether the researcher uses a well defined "coding paradigm" and always looks systematically for "causal conditions," "phenomena/context, intervening conditions, action strategies" and "consequences" in the data, or whether theoretical codes are employed as they emerge in the same way as substantive codes emerge, but drawing on a huge fund of "coding families."
