Portal Card Sorting Activity

Last updated on Jan 20, 2023

In response to feedback we've received from the CCA community, we're enlisting users' help to improve how we organize top-level content on Portal.

Why should I participate?

Card sorting allows you to take part in the web design process, and your feedback will help determine how we reorganize the website.

How does a card sort work?

Participants are presented with a set of cards, each of which corresponds to a Portal page or section.

Participants organize the cards into groups that make best sense to them, then give a name or label for each group.

There are no right or wrong answers!

How do I participate?

This card sort can be completed online at your own pace, or at one of our in-person sessions. Follow the instructions below:

Participate Online

  1. Access the Portal card sort here.
  2. Follow the prompts to complete the activity.
  3. Click "Finished" when you're done, and answer a couple of optional follow-up questions.

Sign Up for an In-Person Session

We've scheduled several blocks of time on campus for in-person sessions where you'll get to complete the card sort with a moderator available to answer questions.

  1. Access the sign-up sheet here.
  2. Select one of the available dates (highlighted in blue on the sign-up sheet calendar).
  3. Select a start time from the list.
  4. Enter your name and email address, then click "Book."

You'll be added to a Google Calendar invite. We'll confirm the location and send you a reminder prior to your session.
