comment How to label status on buttons?
The project owner would 'UN-PUBLISH' the test for a number of reasons, but the main is the timeliness. At some point you need to pull the plug and start analyzing the data.

Uh, I like this! Show/Hide is definitely a good language. I may still split status and action, though. Thanks.

There might be instances when the test is password protected and is not intended for public access. I think PUBLISH is widely understood. I'm just having concerns with un-Publish... :)

Yep, I am going in that direction too. Please see my last comment to under @Bart Gijssens post. Thanks for the confirmation -- I think this is the right direction.

It's a good angle. I am actually starting to think think of splitting the status and action available as a combo solution.

Yes, I am thinking of splitting the status and action, however, if I could come up with a clear opposite action to "Publish Test", I would rather use a single button.

@Matt Obee -- Thanks, it's a good discussion but I am afraid I am not convinced with 'Unpublish'. I'm starting to think more like: 'Take Test Offline', but that's too many words... Still looking.

Not sure I want to get into Visibility. That's not quite accurate. The test is there, only not accessible.

You are right, and as I mentioned in my post, I am considering "Publish Test". The only reason that I have not implemented it yet, is my hesitation about the label for a reverse action. "Un-Publish"? We have users from all over the world; the last thing we want is to start spreading un-English. Any suggestions?

comment Experience of Card Sorting Tool
Remote card sorting is a not a substitute to face-to-face usability testing but rather an new available option made possible by emerging technologies. Our tool was used to collect data in order to improve IA for an info site of the organization in charge of Democratic elections in Africa. In situations like that one can create a test and link from a site instead of trying to recruit participants throughout the country.
