Card Sorting


This hands-on activity allows participants to communicate and document their mental model and how they think about a set of information, creating a logical structure (e.g., relationships, sequences, timing)


When you need to produce an information architecture, introduce structure into a large collection of data, or validate assumptions about how participants categorize information.


• Determine how to organize and structure information that makes sense to users.
• Understand the mental models of an individual or a group of people.
• Explore and assess multiple arrangements and architectures.
