Card Sort

« Back to Glossary Index

A popular research method used to see how people interpret information. This is most often carried out by several participants, who are asked to sort and group together similar “cards” using post-its or software.

The goal is to understand how users views a given set of items and identify potential categories. The patterns that arise may help inform the menu items in a website navigation, or what information should be combined or separated.
