Tools for Card Sorting
- IBM's EZSort was the first program created specifically
for computing the cluster analyses from card sorting. It pioneered the
use of a dendrogram to display the results of the cluster
analysis. A beta release is available for download.
- The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created WebCAT to test either proposed or existing
categorization schemes to determine how well the categories are
understood by users.
- Information and Design, a company in Australia,
created Classified as a tool for evaluating
existing categorization structures.
- By far the best card sorting program in existance is Jorge Toro's CardZort. It capitalizes on the metaphor of playing
cards on a tabletop to offer a natural interface as well as providing
the most powerful analysis tools currently available.
