Course Description

In this 10-video course, you will explore part of chapter 5 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, which focuses on risk and defect management. Learners will recognize how the likelihood and impact of a negative event defines the risk level. Examine the risk associated with a work product - the possibility that a specific work product, for example, a system or test, may fail to satisfy legitimate requirements of its users and/or stakeholders. Also, project risks, which involve situations that if they were to occur, may have a negative impact on a project's ability to achieve its objectives. Explore product risk analysis, and how its results may influence the testing process. Learners examine risk-based testing, used to reduce the levels of product risk; the defect management rationale; how defects found during testing are logged; and objectives of defect reporting. Finally, explore contents of defect reports. In the concluding exercise, you will describe how risk and defect management are used to manage a test project effectively.
