Fundamentals of Software Test Design

Add to calendar

As testers, we know that we can define many more test cases than we will ever have time to design, execute, and report. The key problem in testing is choosing a small, “smart” subset—from the almost infinite number of tests available—that will find a large percentage of the defects. Join Lee Copeland to discover how to design test cases using formal black-box techniques, including equivalence class testing, boundary value testing, decision tables, and state-transition diagrams. Explore examples of each of these techniques in action. Don’t just pick test cases randomly. Learn to selectively choose a set of test cases that maximizes your effectiveness and efficiency to find more defects in less time. Then, see how you can use the test results to evaluate the quality of both your products and your testing. Discover the test design techniques that will make your testing more productive.
