This class has been run in both a 15h (5 x 3h) and 16h (4 x 4h) format.

Module One – QA from 35 000′, Jargon and the SDLC (from a testing perspective)
Description: In this module we define what Quality is in relation to software projects, introduce students to common terminology and jargon they will encounter in the workforce, and look at both the Waterfall method of building software as well as the agile method. We then look at the Waterfall method from the perspective
of “what can we test at this phase?”.

Module Two – QA Infrastructure
Description: This module covers the structure of a QA department including Software, Hardware and People. At the end of the lesson, students will know about each of the major types of systems that they will encounter and how they can be leveraged to improve quality. They will also know about how to roll out a physical qa environment and a suggested staffing methodology.

Module Three – QA Artifacts
Description: This lesson covers the core QA artifact: Test Plans, Test Cases and Reports. The goal is to give students exposure to the type of information stored in them and how to leverage them in their day-to-day work. Due to the introductory nature of the course, we do not cover the creation of them in great detail.
