The QA testing process requires advanced knowledge and practical skills of all the members of the quality assurance team. A test case is one of the key concepts each testing professional should have a clear vision of. In this post, we will open out the most important facts about this concept and share the test cases execution best practices with you.
Before we dive into the world of test case creation and its requirements, it is crucial to clarify the principal features of the QA process. So, what is a test case?
To put it short, it is a set of predefined actions that need to be performed on a chosen digital product to identify whether it suits its requirements and user expectations. These actions are aimed at checking the software’s functionality, its compliance with industry standards, and customer needs. This process might also help QA experts detect bugs, errors, a crash, and other flaws in a particular production environment.
It is important to distinguish the concepts of the test cases between test scenarios. According to QA professionals and leads, a test scenario is a chain of various types of test cases that should be executed one after another. In other words, test cases are usually focused on the subject and the methods of testing, while the scenario is targeted at finding out only the end-to-end functionality that should be tested.
The formats used for test cases might significantly vary. However, there is a golden rule for creating a standard solution most QA pros usually use. According to this rule, a good test case template should contain the following parameters:
There are many different types of test cases used by quality assurance professionals. Choosing the needed type depends on the niche of the digital product, its core functionality, and advanced features to be checked, as well as the standards it needs to meet. However, the essential ones are always the same:
Ubertesters has remained a reliable testing partner for years. Our experts performed millions of test cases for a wide range of digital products. Therefore, we’ve collected some QA best practices we would like to share with you:
Once the test case execution phase is done, it is recommended to run an exploratory testing cycle using numerous testers and devices from several global locations. This phase acts as the ‘insurance’ that all critical issues are resolved, no UI/UX issues exist, no “local” problems arise (specific issues with different devices, or locations), and the product is ready for public launch.
But how can you test your product in real-life conditions? This is exactly where crowd testing is usually the best fit to cover all your needs for the exploratory testing phase. This solution allows you to benefit from using the ‘freestyle’ testing, where you can choose the locations, types of devices, operating systems, and a wide range of other parameters to test your application in the wild.
