Cart Sorting

a. What is Card Sorting

  • Card sorting is a low-cost, simple way to figure out how best to group and organize structure based on user input.
  • Users are given a series of labeled cards and asked to organize and sort them into groups that they think are appropriate.
  • Card sorting helps to design an information architecture, workflow, menu structure or website navigation paths.

b. Type of Card Sorting

  • Open card sort: Participants sort cards into categories that make sense to them, and label each category themselves
  • Closed card sort: Participants sort cards into categories you give them
  • Hybrid card sort: Participants sort cards into categories you give them and can create their own categories as well

c. How to Conduct

  • Step 1: Organize cards into groups
  • Step 2: Give each group a label
  • Step 3: Sort groups from left to right
  • Step 4: Sort cards from top to bottom
  • Step 5: Place flags beside cards
  • Step 6: Analyze the results
