class), devise items to sort that might measure knowledge
about the domain (click on "New Grid" from web-grid) ,
try it on a victim, record their results (use the "cluster" and "map" buttons).
You'll want to include the cluster and map output in your
work, so make sure you get the pictures from the analysis (right
click on a PC, click and hold on a MAC, to copy the image
