F11-404: Documenting Tester Instructions – A Survey of Successful Approaches

Track: Test Process

This session provides an overview of several different approaches that are successfully used by testers to address these questions:

  • What type of testing documentation should you create?
  • How much detail is appropriate to include in order to guide testers and/or satisfy compliance requirements?

This session will discuss pro’s and cons of several approaches, including:

  • Checklists
  • Mindmaps
  • Test ideas
  • Specification by example
  • Detailed test scripts

In some software testing presentations, the speaker will understandably , explain why they think one particular approach is particularly attractive. This won’t be one of those talks.
