Testing Plan

So. I found it a bit difficult to do testing and testing plans. Mainly because I really want to make something that doesn’t have people at the center of its user base. Also because of some network issues I haven’t been able to test anything with the Google Home on campus until basically the end of this course. And because I don’t have my REB for user testing yet, testing on friends isn’t something I can do.

I guess my test plan is sort of open ended. Because its not really centered in the end towards users. So in this case, something like: Just spend a few minutes asking google home some questions while its running, seems to be a thing that would work.

I guess for myself my test plan is asking:

  • Did that block of code work?
  • What is working smoothly?
  • Did it crash?
  • If so, why?
  • Is there a way this code can be improved?
  • Am I getting the wanted output from this program?
  • What am I “fudging”?
  • Is there a better way to do [X]?
  • What were some of the limitations of this action?
  • What are some of the differences between the online simulation and the actual device?

Tho I feel writing some actual software tests is something I need to learn. I already de-bug, and log, but tests also makes sense.

As for feedback, I did make a google form for feedback for this class, but never got to use it due to the mentioned network issues.
