How it works
1. Define your tree and tasks
Think of the tree as a branching structure (e.g., navigation menu). It's a list of categories and subcategories. You can create it with our handy editor, import it from a spreadsheet or load it from an existing site.
The tasks test the categories and labels in your tree structure by asking testers to find something contained within the tree.
2. Recruit testers
Share your tree testing study with the world. Just send testers a study link, recruit them through your own social media channels, or turn visitors directly from your site into testers through our Recruiting Widget. Time-consuming? Order testers from our User Panel.
Testers complete the tree testing activity online, on their own device.
How many testers found the correct answers? Results show whether the hierarchy and wording of your tree structure matches user expectations. See how testers move through your tree – including where they get stuck.
The results are designed to give you quick, actionable insights and enable you to delve deeper into the data.
