UX Techniques – Card Sorting

This UXDiscuss will look at Card Sorting tools and techniques. Card sorts can be a useful part of UX research and analysis, especially if we want to know how our users perceive things like menus and general system IA. Looking at how best to conduct card sorts and how to then extract the useful data is an essential skill to achieve the best results. What tools and techniques do you use to decide your course of action when running card sorting exercises?

The #uxdiscuss event will be held on 16th June 2016 (16/06/2016) at 1pm UK time (8am Eastern US).

The questions we will be discussing are:

  1. What are your tips for a successful card sorting session?
  2. Open/Closed/Hybrid, local/remote, individual/group—How do you decide on which type of card sort to conduct?
  3. How do you avoid biased responses—e.g. The Hawthorne Effect—during card sorts?

The questions will be posted to Twitter via @uxdiscuss using the hashtag #uxdiscuss and all you have to do is join in.

We look forward to seeing you then!
