Carol & WSTF,
 
Looks like a good start to me! I'm in favor of cutting down the numbers,
perhaps significantly. I like your idea of running a pilot to see how
long it will take (will be important to be able to tell potential
participants, too).
 
WSTF: Please send you comments to the list, including suggestions on how
to cut down the scope/number of cards/time.
 
A few questions:
- How do you propose to overcome the problems that folks had last time
we tried card sort, for example, people not understanding what the
documents are from the title?
- Have you planned methods to conduct the card sort with participants
with various disabilities?
- Have you thought about recruiting participants at CSUN?
 
Charmane: are you interested in conducting card sorts at CSUN? Do you
want to talk to Carol ahead of time, or at CSUN?
 
Blossom, Michael, others: are you interested in conducting card sorts at
CSUN? Please coordinate with Carol.
 
Regards,
 
~ Shawn

Subject: WSTF: CSUN Closed Card Sort


Dear All,
 
Here is my first go around at shortening the card sort list for the
closed card sort to be done at CSUN.  Please take a look (it's an Excel
Spreadsheet) - if you would like a different type of file please tell
me.  If you have questions about the closed card sort please contact me.
 
Here's a brief summary of what I've done with this file:
- I took out references to version 2.0 for simplicities sake
- I took out odd outliers - such as Errata
- total of 40 cards removed - I think we can cut more.  The more we cut
the more we can test because time will be shortened per test.
 
Here are the group names I suggest for the closed card sort - please
give feedback on this as well (from
