Make The Move From Manual Testing To Automated Testing With Our Automated Software Testing Training Courses Learn more
Our two-day Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop will provide you with practical guidance on the application of test case design techniques (and measures of test coverage), and advice on the choice of which of these techniques and measures to use. The aim is to provide you with a tool-set of techniques from which you can then choose most effectively.
Test Case Design requires the tester to move from an infinite number of possible tests to a tiny subset which can be managed in the all too finite time available on a real project. The secret is to select the most effective subset that will give you the most information about the system under test. This is the challenging, skilful, intellectually demanding task of effective test case design. The same fundamental approaches for designing tests are used at all levels of software testing.
The Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop will give you practical hands-on experience of applying the most popular test case design techniques to example problems, each of which is supported by model answers.
What Will The Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop Cover?
The objectives for the Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop:
The Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop focuses on the most popular black box techniques and includes an introduction to white box approaches, but each workshop will be tailored to the preferences of the audience on the day. All the techniques covered will conform to those defined in the new ISO/IEC/IEEE29119 Software Testing Standards and the BCS Software Component Testing Standard.
Advice will also be provided on how to decide which of the techniques will be most effective for a given situation, based on both experience and the latest experimental results.
The Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop is principally aimed at practising testers, actively involved in software testing, who want to improve the quality and effectiveness of the tests they (or their testers) design, and who want to ensure that they are fully aware of current best industry practices.
This includes people in roles such as system testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.
The Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop includes slides, exercises and practical work, and uses a hands-on approach based on group exercises and discussions. It is highly-interactive, allowing you to learn from the experience of the instructor and each other, and, owing to its interactive nature, each workshop is restricted to a maximum of 18 delegates.
There are no formal entry requirements but 3-6 months experience in software testing would be beneficial.
There is no formal prereading for this Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop.
There is no examination with this Test Techniques - Foundation Level Workshop.
There are no Professional Qualification Credits associated with the Test Techniques – Foundation Level Workshop.
The Test Techniques - Foundation Level Workshop will have given you experience in applying commonly used test design techniques.
