Structured Testing is a go-to training for anyone with no or limited knowledge in testing.
As a professional (user acceptance) tester it is an advantage to have a good theoretical and practical basis about testing. This enables you to integrate seamlessly with the (Agile) development team and contribute real value (ROI) towards the quality of a product and even the development process.
First participants will learn the most important (agile) software testing concepts and receive an introduction into a relevant test management tools. If applicable, we can choose one tool to elaborate on (Jira/Zephyr, Jira/TestRail, Azure DevOps/Testplan, …). This way, participants will gain test awareness and a broader perspective on testing and quality assurance.
This theoretical day is followed by a full day of practical real-life simulation and exercises (case study), which will help put everything into practice and gain extra insights.
Two-day training covering Test Analysis, Test Case Design, Test Case Management, Results / Defect logging, Reporting; both in theory and in practice.
- one-day theoretical training (Structured Testing and Test Case Management)
- one-day practical training (Case Study)
Both days can be customized to your needs and can be booked separately.
- Test Analysis
First phase of testing!
Interpret analysis documents and user stories from a testing perspective.
Ask the right questions to make sure there are no more misunderstandings.
- Test Case Design
Based on the test analysis, test cases or scenarios are designed to cover the analysis, user stories, requirements with the right amount of test coverage.
Learn how to prioritize, and what’s important to cover (risks based testing).
How many test cases / steps are enough?
How many negative tests are enough?
- Test Case Management
Learn how to manage all test cases and test sets in a way that they are as repeatable as possible.
Learn how to make test cases traceable towards the requirements and the issues that come out of executing the tests.
Learn how to create and maintain one or more regression test sets.
- Results / Defect logging
Learn how to log test results (passed/failed).
Learn how to log bugs (issues) properly to enable for quick bug fixes and progress reporting. Which information is needed?
Learn about most important metrics to be reported towards the (agile) development team or (test) lead.
- Other topics
The importance of good and testable requirements/change requests.
Learn The difference between validation (UAT) and verification (IT testing).
Basic terminology and awareness about e.g. development methodologies, exploratory testing, black and white box testing, test automation, testing roles and responsibilities, …
Who might want to attend this course?
