Course Description

This course teaches students how to leverage their projects' use cases, requirements and requirements artifacts to develop test plans, test cases, and test procedures to support iterative development. Students will learn the concepts and a practical step-by-step approach for developing test plans, test cases and test procedures. How to apply these concepts and techniques in an agile methodology approach is also discussed. Lab exercises, in which students practice the techniques, are a central part of the course.

This course focuses on functional testing; performance, load, stress, and other types of tests are also discussed. The class will not cover basic testing overview concepts, except as needed. Familiarity with the testing role and test activities is assumed.
