Exploratory testing

  1. 1. What is Exploratory Testing??
  2. 2. Exploratory Testing Un-scripted – The script is not designed prior to testing but in parallel to testing in what is known as Session Notes. The term Exploratory Testing was coined by Cem Kaner in 1983. An approach to software testing which is concisely described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution.
  3. 3. Busting the Myths about ET.  ET is unstructured – Is disciplined, Structured and has a mission.  Is performed after the test execution phase – A parallel activity including learning about the system/product under test, test design and test execution.  Has no test cases – Comprises of test ideas.  And no documentation – Has documentation.

  7. 7. Why Debrief ?? Debrief often t0 share and learn from  Bug reports  Investigation reports  Findings  Observations  Questions  Experience reports  Tools used Debriefing can help acquire domain knowledge faster by collaborating with other testers.
  8. 8. Questions? Is SBTM applicable to projects of any domain and every scale? Answer for yourself! do NOT fall prey to dogma.
