Day 1 as a Practical UAT Session:

  • Quick overview of the UAT and what a UAT test script does (and doesn’t do)
  • The students will be given a business process flow plus high level business requirements relating to the sending of emails  – provides experience in analyzing test basis
  • They are then given the task of drafting a UAT test script to test some of the business process flows implied by the test basis – provides experience in designing a simple test script at UAT level
  • They swap scripts via email with another student and provide some feedback on the test script to help learn about providing constructive, objective feedback
  • They are given some pre-written UAT test scripts to try out (based on the same test basis they saw earlier)
  • They execute the prewritten test scripts using the email client on their own PC (probably MS Outlook but it doesn’t really matter because they’re testing the process, not the software) – provides exercise in test execution and results logging, plus defect reporting
  • They then try their own test scripts to see what happens – provides experience in using their own work products
  • Class debrief and wrap up

Day 2 – Post ISTQB Foundation Techniques Workshop with Use cases and Exploratory testing:

  • The ‘Test Techniques – Advanced Level’ workshop provides delegates with practical guidance on the application of advanced 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 extend the delegate’s toolset of techniques from which they can then choose most effectively.
  • The 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 12 delegates.
  • This workshop provides delegates with practical hands-on experience of applying static analysis and test case design techniques to example problems relating to both code and business processes, each of which is supported by model answers.
  • The course focuses exploratory testing and use cases.  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.

Those attending the course will benefit from seeing testing from a purely practical perspective.

Who is it for?

The workshop is principally aimed at testers and test engineers who have already attended the Test techniques – Foundation level course 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.
