Test Techniques - Foundation level Virtual

The ‘Test Techniques – Foundation Level’ workshop provides delegates 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 the delegate with a toolset of techniques from which they can then choose most effectively.

Course overview

About the course

This one-day tutor-led workshop includes slides, exercises and practical work, and uses a hands-on approach based on group exercises and discussions. It is highly-interactive, allowing attendees 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.

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.

This workshop provides delegates with practical hands-on experience of applying the most popular test case design techniques to example problems, each of which is supported by model answers.

The course 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.

What is virtual classroom training?

Virtual instructor-led training combines the personal teaching experience of a classroom, with the ease and flexibility of a virtual environment. Virtual courses are interactive and engaging, allowing participants to communicate with both the instructor and each other in a collaborative manner.

Duration

This is an intensive two-day virtual course.

The objectives for introduction to test techniques:

  • To give attendees an awareness of the benefits of using formal techniques to design test cases
  • To give attendees experience in applying commonly used test design techniques
  • To give attendees an appreciation of how test techniques are appropriate for different systems under test and/or different levels of risk
  • To give attendees an appreciation of how these techniques are used to create test cases and measure test coverage
  • Test process
  • Formal and Informal test design
  • Equivalence Partitioning
  • Boundary Value Analysis
  • Classification Tree Method
  • Pairwise testing
  • Decision Table testing
  • Process Cycle testing
  • State Transition testing
  • Statement testing/Decision testing & Path testing
  • Choosing test techniques

This is an intensive two-day virtual course that includes the following:

  • All accompanying course material   

There is no formal exam associated with this course.

The workshop is principally aimed at practicing 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.
