Card Sorting IAK method

Sort concepts into groups in an early project phase, for example to develop logical and user-friendly navigation or menu structures.

The users group cards with terms (= name of sub-headings) to sensible groups. There are two methods: With closed card sorting the terms are assigned to predefined categories; in open card sorting users form their own categories, which are (should) represent the later main headings. In a multi-level card sorting, the groups formed in the first round will be further grouped later. Before sorting, the comprehensibility of the terms can (should) also be queried (wording analysis).

Cards and pens or cards printed with words
