This is an introductory course of test design, covering many test techniques at a superficial level, with ways to compare strengths of different techniques and select complementary techniques to form an effective testing strategy.
The participants will have the opportunity to deepen and expand their understanding of the Heuristic Test Strategy Model for specification analysis and risk and concept-mapping tools for test planning.
Requirements for a Certificate:
Minimum attendance requirement is 75% of course events.
Assessed portfolio work for practical tasks like group and individual planning, observation, demonstration, micro-teaching, discussion and feedback sessions.
