Serious Test Case Design


You will have a good understanding of a number of test case design techniques. You will find the best technique for each project situation and you will be able to determine what makes it the best.


During test analysis and design, there are a number of different test case design techniques that can be used for creating test cases for a given set of requirements.

During test analysis and design, you have to master the following tasks:

  • Review the requirements
  • Evaluate whether the requirements and software are testable
  • Identify and prioritize the test conditions in the requirements based on what is important to the project
  • Design and prioritize test cases to cover those test conditions
  • Identify the necessary test data to support the test cases
  • Create a trace between the test conditions and the test cases

The goal is to provide adequate test coverage for the requirements in order to gain confidence in a system being tested.


  • Raise your proficiency in a number of test case design techniques, both manual and tool supported
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of each technique
  • Contrast and compare the number of test cases and the amount of test coverage obtained by each technique across the same problems
  • Gain hands-on experience with a number of test case design tools


  • Installing the testing tools that will be used in the course
