Course Description


This course is designed to provide an introduction to software life cycle testing concepts and techniques. Testing consumes approximately forty percent of the cost of developing and maintaining a software system; however, testing is not taught on a formal basis.


Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
  • Explain the difference between software quality assurance and software testing
  • Appreciate testing and how it fits into the life cycle
  • Apply the appropriate testing method application to various test phases
  • Apply error prevention and error detection
  • Explain the difference between and application of Internal and External testing
  • Employ Static and Dynamic testing techniques within each phase of the software life cycle
  • Employ quality testing methods rather than quantities of tests
  • Define and develop high quality test case scenarios
  • Apply various techniques for test case development.
  • Define what is included in a test plan
  • Choose and integrate test tools
  • Describe the characteristics of a good tester
  • Acquire skills and techniques for immediate application to the student's current project
