Certified Tester Advanced Level Overview International Software Testing Qualifications Board Version 2012 Page 11 of 18 October 19, 2012 © International Software Testing Qualifications Board TA8 Design and implement a defect classification scheme. TA9 Apply tools to support an efficient testing process. 2.2.2 Content Chapter 1: Testing Process A Test Analyst should understand the importance of involvement throughout the test process, with particular focus on the role and contribution of the Test Analyst, and how those align with the roles of the Test Manager and Technical Test Analyst. The Test Analyst’ s tasks of test analysis and design are described. This includes determining the appropriate uses for concrete and logical test cases as well as defining the pre-conditions and criteria used for starting test execution and determining the status of test completion criteria. The impact of different lifecycle models is a central aspect to these tasks. Chapter 2: Test Management: Responsibilities for the Test Analyst A Test Analyst should understand the purpose and expected contribution toward the project metrics. A Test Analyst should understand how to prioritize on the basis of risks and can schedule business domain-based tests appropriately. This includes understanding the risk assessment impact on test case selection, test coverage and test data tasks. Chapter 3: Test Techniques Testing techniques belong to the core competencies of the Test Analyst. Specification-based and defect- and experience-based techniques are covered. The specification-based techniques introduced at the Foundation level are developed further. These include equivalence partitioning, boundary value analysis, decision tables, state transition testing and use case testing. Additional specification-based techniques introduced include classification tree testing, use of orthogonal arrays, pairwise testing, domain analysis and user stories. Defect-based techniques, exploratory testing and the use of defect taxonomies are additional techniques covered in the area of defect- and experience-based techniques. A Test Analyst should understand how to select the best technique for a given testing situation as well as how to effectively mix techniques to achieve the best testing result.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
