Testing checklists

ODK Collect does not have testing checklist. It is important part of quality.

  • Checklists work as a reminder. Important tests can be entered to checklists to ensure that these tests get executed
  • Checklists help guide developers in reducing the errors they generally make in their code
  • Checklists help new staff to pick up and run on the go.

I prepared a sketches of Testing Checklists. Google tools was the first idea. I created one sketch is on Google Spreadsheets, second on Google Docs.

  1. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ITmOW2MFs_8-VM6MTwganTRWDjpctz9CI8QKojXrnjE/edit#gid=0
  2. https://docs.google.com/document/d/12K2f65PATf9nl-2KJDSPzOztdz9qCxJ9sN8x0Pa8_mU/edit#heading=h.d639fw5852db

I prefer first way. Table is more readable for me.
Most important Spreadsheets advantages:

  • adding new column for the newest version while retaining readability
  • it is easy to verify version where functionality was introduced
  • quick way to locate a part that needs attention

I will be grateful for any suggestions to sketches or propositions with other tools to improving testing checklists


I like the first one more as well, it looks more like a test matrix to me.
