UX-Classify is a tool for User Experience designers and Interaction Designers to have card sorting experiments.
It is an app that can run on mobile devices as well as larger screens such as laptops and desktops. Bellow, you can see how it would look in a medium to large screen (laptops and desktop screens) as well as small screens (tablets and phones).
On the users's end:
The users are given a deck of cards to have the card sorting experiment with. There are two kinds of experiment that the admin (UX designer) can assign to users.
- An open experiment, during which users are given a premade deck of cards but they can also create their own cards and add them to the deck.
- A closed experiment, during which users are given a premade deck of cards to sort. In this kind of experiment, users cannot add to the cards in the deck and have to use only what they have been given.
By dragging and dropping cards onto each other, you can group them and give the group a name. Once the group is made, it gets a random colour ribbon on top for easier identification of the different groups.
You can also create subgroups by dragging a group and dropping it in another group. Once you are done with the experiment, you can click on save button and close the app.
The information about the changes made including the groups and cards that have been used, made, or left unused is saved into the database for the admin to review and analyze. The admin has a different interface. When the admin opens the app, He sees the list of the experiments with brief information about them such as the date, kind of experiment, cards used, cards made, and the name of the user (or “Anonymous” for users who choose not have their names).
Amongst the detailed information that the designer can have access to is Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA).
He/ she can also compare two users's Hierarchical Cluster Analysis on the experiments. Also, there is an option to have all the HCAs showing.
