All students who sign up for the Domain Testing course must have successfully completed the BBST® Test Design course.
Altom, in collaboration with Kaner, Fiedler & Associates, LLC, is offering a new generation of public BBST® courses, with the BBST® Domain Testing course being the fourth one in the series.
After learning multiple testing techniques in Test Design, in this fourth module, we will focus on domain testing, which includes equivalence partitioning and boundary analysis and uses a risk-based approach. This course helps you gain competence in the technique through extensive practice with real-world applications. You will learn to do variable tours, to sample appropriately from secondary dimensions of variables and to imagine relevant tests for results and consequences.
Domain testing is primarily a sampling strategy:
- Divide the possible values of a variable into subsets of values that are similar in some way (we’ll call them equivalent).
- Design your test to use only one or two values from each subset. Pick extreme values (we’ll call them boundaries) that maximize the likelihood of exposing a bug.
You might already be familiar with equivalence class analysis or boundary testing. This course goes beyond that.
You will work through a set of real-world applications that is:
- Broad enough for you to learn the scope of the technique.
- Detailed enough for you to develop this skill by practicing, getting feedback and trying again until you can do it well.
