Working Well with Test Design Techniques and Test Approaches
Date of Webinar: 20/08/2019
Do you know what the coverage of your tests is? Do your stakeholders get confidence based on the information supplied by your tests? This webinar will help you get your test preparation in order.
A key concern of testers is how to spread the testing efforts over the test object in such way that testing will be an optimal mix of effectiveness and efficiency. Based on the risk-level the tester(s) decide on the test intensity needed. And to achieve that test intensity, test approaches and test design techniques are used. But there are very many approaches and techniques. So which do you choose? In this webinar we discuss the experience-based approaches (e.g. exploratory testing) and the coverage-based approaches (test design techniques divided in 4 groups: Process, Condition, Data and Appearance).
The key focus of people involved in testing must be to choose the right mix of approaches and techniques so that the stakeholders will have adequate information to establish the confidence that the information system will be able to deliver the expected business value.
We will show examples of how to mix approaches and techniques and will also explain that you don’t need to know ALL techniques as long as you know at least one technique per group, so you’ll be able to vary your testing efforts according to the challenges the test objects brings you.
- Preparing your testing by using experience based and coverage based approaches
- Use Test design techniques from each of the 4 groups: Process, Condition, Data and Appearance based techniques
- Work well on your test preparation by always combining approaches and techniques
