Advanced Test Scripts

Many organisations use a slightly more advanced approach to test scripting for user acceptance testing. Whereby, they develop test cases, which include the test tasks, that is, the steps to take, the expected results and whether the test has passed or failed.

In some cases, the test tasks can be picture, showing the product or service under test along with what the step involved is, as for example, as done previously using the remote control, where the buttons to be pressed were circled in red, as shown in the screenshot below.

This approach makes it easier for the user acceptance tester, as they have a visual instruction to what steps to take and in many cases, the user acceptance tester may not be an expert user of the product or service being tested, so any assistance, visually can be hugely beneficial, with the likelihood of the accompanying testing being far more accurate and quicker.
