Fundamental Series

Parts 1 thru 4: Test Planning

Abstract: This WEBinar series describes testing terminology, setting of test objectives, and test planning, execution, and reporting.

This material is excerpted from QAI's Test Planning Course, Boot Camp for Software Testers.

Part 1: Test Objectives 
How to set test objectives. Shows the testing lifecycle, testing economics, the tester's workbench, and test objectives.

  • Test lifecycle
    Understanding the continuous testing model, as an alternative to the "big bang" model of testing
  • Test economics
    Learning how testing throughout the lifecycle, including requirements, saves more money than testing at the end of the process
  • Tester's workbench
    Diagramming the Plan, Do, Check, and Act model for testers, including quality control checking the testing itself
  • Setting test objectives
    Knowing the requirements statement for a testing project, since when test objectives are complete, testing is complete

Part 2: Test Design 
How to identify business and structural functions, and build test matrixes and test cases. 

  • General and detailed design of tests
    Understanding test categories and types
  • Business and structural functions of tests
    Knowing business functions to be tested from requirements, and structural functions to be tested showing software performance
  • Test matrixes
    Function/test matrices, test/cycle matrices, prioritization
  • Test cases 
    Doing test case design, whether batch or scripts for online

Part 3: Test Execution
How to code and execute test cases, test scripts and use other testing methods; How to use regression testing

  • coding and execution of test cases
    Including testing methods and techniques
  • test scripts
    With prerequisites, setups, instructions, and multiple scenarios
  • testing methods
    Eliminating unneeded redundancy, making it both efficient and effective
  • regression testing
    With system boundaries, changing programs and data, assuring unchanged coding still works

Part 4: Test Reporting
How to report testing activity including defects remaining, likelihood of failure, and what has and has not been tested. 

  • test reporting activity
    Including individual defects, defect groups and types, graphical reports, and backlogs
  • success of testing
    Depicted to developers and managers, including repeated themes and process errors
  • defects remaining
    Showing testing progress made and remaining, defects found, corrected, and uncorrected
  • likelihood of failure
    Based on number of critical, major, and minor defects remaining
  • what has and has not been tested
    Knowing that whatever has not been tested has to be certified as not working.
