This paper examines and reviews different methods of content analysis of student inline discussion that takes place on bulletin boards. The aim is to determine whether higher order thinking can be distinguished within transcripts of dialogue. To provide a context for the discussion, a short case study is presented. A group of students were presented with a discussion topic and were given a series of criteria against which their work would be assessed. At the end of the discussion their dialogue was analysed using three different techniques which were then compared to identify whether any one method could be recommended to other practitioners. Suggestions for evaluation of bulletin board transcripts are made on the basis of this investigation.
