Weekly Test Fests

Join our QA “Test Fests” every Thursday from 10am to 11 am, Eastern time! This is an opportunity to jump into testing Sakai 11 with the support of the QA Team and other community members. You do not need to be an functional expert to get involved! Test Fest agendas and notes can be found in our Sakai 11 QA Meeting Notes google doc. We begin our Test Fests in the QA Room in BigBlueButton (see above). Throughout the course of the Test Fest, we communicate using our new SakaiQA channel in Apereo’s Slack instance described below.

Get Started: Regression Testing

Regression testing is critical for ensuring that all functionality in Sakai is working as intended. We’ve updated our regression test scripts for Sakai 11 to be as clear, concise, and usable as possible. See the instructions for Testers and Test Script Authors below.

For Testers:

Testers execute regression test scripts, which test the functionality of Sakai. Testers record their observations and create JIRAs as needed. See the following video and documents for getting started with regression testing Sakai 11: 

Executing Regression Test Scripts (google doc)

Sakai 11 MASTER Test Scripts List (google sheet)

 

For a walkthrough of the JIRA creation process, see the following video overview:

For Test Script Authors:

Test Script Authors create/update Sakai regression test scripts to provide clear and consistent materials for testers. See the following video and documents for getting started with creating/updating regression test scripts for Sakai 11:
