The history of testing standards has not always been auspicious. Testing standards documents have been expensive to obtain, limited in scope, inflexible in expectations, and inconsistent. However, they contain important lessons learned from experienced practitioners—if a tester is willing to overcome the obstacles to get to the useful information. A set of new international standards is coming. These new standards are tailorable, consistent, and comprehensive in scope. In addition, they will be freely available (some are already). Claire Lohr provides a complete roadmap to all of the available—or soon-to-be-available—testing-related standards. Learn where to go for testing process guidelines, complete definitions of all test design techniques, full examples of test documentation (for both agile and traditional projects), and free international standards documents. Take away a “start-up guide” for how different types of projects can use the new standards along with valuable tips and practical lessons you can get from these standards.
