How do you write test design specifications?

Hey Noah!

It’s likely that we’ll come up with different ideas for test design specifications, even if we’re working on the same project. For instance, you might decide something isn’t necessary for your specifications, while I think it’s a crucial point.

To make sure that software projects run smoothly, the IEEE helps manage every phase of development. They define standards for each development phase and start even before a single line of code is written.

IEEE 829 describes the following essential elements necessary to be described inside the document:

  • Test design specification identifier.
  • Features to be tested.
  • Approach refinements.
  • Test case identification.
  • Feature pass/fail criteria.
