A free comprehensive guide for evaluating site structures
This guide is about tree testing, described by Wikipedia as:
a usability technique for evaluating the findability of topics in a website
This guide is based on lessons learned from hundreds of tree tests and dozens of Information Architecture (IA) projects run for small, medium, and large organizations.
Originally conceived as a book, Tree Testing for Websites has been released as a community wiki so that:
- It can reach the widest audience possible (by Internet searching and word-of-mouth linking).
- The community can update it to match the latest developments in IA methods and tree-testing software.
- Readers can comment on articles (no login required) and even add their own content (get a login below).
