Test Design Techniques

New and revised Practical Test Analysis II.

Learn advanced test design techniques and their use in practice

Why attend the course?

The goal of this one-day course is to familiarize participants with advanced test design techniques and test them on practical examples. Practical exercises are mainly focused on testing input combinations, respectively on testing a large number of inputs using various methods and tools. You will learn what tools to use for specific cases and how to create an effective set of tests based on the results obtained.

First, you will get acquainted with:

  • Testing input combinations and testing a large number of inputs
  • Techniques and tools for combinatorial testing
  • Basic techniques such as equivalence classes, boundary value analysis, decision tables and state diagram and their role in combinatorial testing

You will then learn what tools to use for specific cases and how to create an effective set of tests based on the results obtained. You will try out individual techniques and their combinations to achieve maximum efficiency of the created test kits.

Key Takeaways

How to test input combinations

How to choose suitable combinations for a large number of inputs

How to use even basic test design techniques for more complex test design

Kamila Kozakovičová will guide you through the course

Kamila has been in testing since 2010. During that time, she went through several banks, where she stood, for example, at the very beginnings of Smartbanking. Kamila has experience in testing Internet banking, mobile applications, and databases. Since 2017, when she started working in Tesena, she has been working on projects at, for example, Erste bank or KB. She trains SQL and Test analysis courses.
