Summary from the STP Con Testing Conference:
Documenting Tester instructions –
a Survey of Successful approaches
Track: Test Process
Justin hunter, CEO, Hexawise
This session provides an overview of several different approaches that are successfully used by testers to address the questions of: What type of testing documentation should you create; and how much detail is appropriate to include in order to guide testers and/or satisfy compliance requirements? This session will discuss pros and cons of several approaches, including:
• Test ideas
• Specification by example
• Detailed test scripts
In some software testing presentations, the speaker will explain why they think one particular approach is particularly attractive. This won’t be one of those talks.
Justin is a test design specialist who has enjoyed teaching testers how to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their test case selection and documentation approaches.
