Define the Best Level for Your Automation

Test automation scripts are typically run against stable functionality with repeatable results. Automation does not have to be restricted to running reliable tests against a fixed code base to make them effective. In this workshop, you will learn how to determine the right level of automation you need to meet a project’s needs. Three levels of test automation will be discussed. Level 1 tests exercise the simplest aspect of functionality in a module. Level 2 tests explore all module aspects except interfaces to other components. Level 3 tests examine the deepest level of functionality in a module, including those that interface to other components. Jim will discuss the concepts of each of these levels and share practical examples. By attending this workshop, QA & test professionals will be able to improve the logic in their automation scripts and increase the chances of detecting more defects by defining their appropriate levels of test automation.

Learning Objectives

  • Review of automation maturation to introduce levels
  • Differentiate factors between each automation level
  • Discuss a strategy for building tests at each automation level
