Do you play Cards? Card Sorting Exercise

This exercise uses a technique called card sorting. We need you to group together page descriptions from our website that make sense to you. Then you can name these groups with a heading that you feel accurately describes the content.

Instructions

  1. Drag cards out of the left “Card List” column to the centre of the page to create a new group
  2. After you have created a group you can rename it by clicking on “Enter Group Name”
  3. Drag more cards out from the left “Card List” column and make new groups or add them to groups you have already created
  4. Once you have categorized all items, use the “I’m Done” button at the top of the page to submit your card sorting exercise.

Be sure to categorize all the items, but take as much or as little time as you need. 

Hints and Tips

  • If you need more information about each card, you can hover over the ⓘ icon
  • You can remove cards from a group by dragging them back out and into the Card List
  • You can delete a group you have created by clicking on the trash icon in top right of the group, all cards must have been removed beforehand
