An Investigation of the Effect of Patial Card Sorting on Sorter Satisfaction with a Consensus Clustering
David A Robb and Mike J Chantler
We have access to a database of many card sorting studies. This data was used to investigate the effect of partial sorting (giving sorters only a portion of the cards in a sort) on the eventual satisfaction, or amount of agreement, of each sorter with a clustering of the results of a card sort. This was done by simulating the withdrawal of cards from sorters, clustering the depleted groupings, but then comparing the results with sorters' original non-depleted groupings.
