Overview/Description

During this 13-video course, learners will explore part of chapter 5 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, which covers test monitoring and control and configuration management. Begin by looking at the purpose of test monitoring and how it is applied to control the test process effectively. You will then consider the test metrics collected during testing activities, in order to make some type of assessment and the purpose and content of test reports and how they are tailored to audiences. This leads to looking at test progress and test summary reports. Learners then explore why configuration management is so important to the integrity of the testing process and how test item management is conducted as part of that process. Examine how testware is controlled and managed to ensure the integrity of the testing process, and learn how to identify testware and test items that are associated with testing a component or system. The concluding exercise focuses on the test monitor and control process.
