Free Testing  WEBinar

FREE Effective Methods of Software Testing - Intro

Free WEBinar:: This will introduce you to methods to effectively plan and execute software testing to validate that a system meets requirements. These methods will provide a structured approach for testing throughout the systems development life cycle using these four steps, made famous by the Quality Assurance Institute:

Step 1 – Set Test Objectives
Step 2 – Develop Test Plan
Step 3 – Execute Tests
Step 4 – Summarize and Report Results

Come learn how this is done, and get a free copy of a detailed system test plan to boot!  

The process is applicable to prototyping, client/server, or contracting software, as well as conventional system design.

It will be our pleasure to share a free copy of a detailed system test plan for everyone who attends the WEBinar.

This is an introductory Webinar to a 6 week series starting October 9.   

In that series, you will get advanced detail on the 4 steps above. 

In addition, a test plan standard is provided with all the worksheets and procedures needed to develop the plan. The process is applicable to prototyping, client/server, or contracting software, as well as conventional system design. The system testing approach addresses:

  • Test strategies
  • Uncovering test critical success factors
  • Setting measurable test objectives
  • Applying test techniques
  • Developing a test plan
  • Using function/test matrices
  • Recording the results of testing
  • Regression testing
  • Developing test reports
  • Making test efforts reusable
  • Test measurement
  • Performing a risk assessment

A recommended tester’s toolbox that can be used within the system testing process is presented. It focuses on test case development and implementation tools and methods. A three-step process for identifying detailed test conditions, designing test cases, and building test data is used to provide for the following test methods:

  • Population analysis
  • Characterizing test conditions using QAI’s 14 transaction types (over 30 pages of test condition checklists are provided)
  • Determining test conditions from specifications
  • Creating test conditions/expected results
  • Boundary value analysis
  • Equivalence partitioning
  • Decision tables
  • Code coverage
  • Test scripting
  • Test deck development
