Recent surveys show that problems with content navigation is the #1 challenge users experience on our site, so we’re committed to improving this.

As part of our website redesign, the Web Team collaborated with redesign partners at Kalamuna, to collect a sample of our most-visited, mostly student-focused webpages, and organized them into digital “cards.” Now we’re asking for your help to sort them into categories that make sense to you.

This test is best done on a laptop or desktop. While our website will be mobile-friendly, this test is difficult to do on a touch device.

Please read the instructions, and click “finished” when you’re done!

Thank you for your participation. Feel free to share this user test with other GRCC employees and students! The more participants we have, the better informed we’ll be.
