Alpha Test

Definition: The preliminary testing of a new product in which research and development are still in progress. In PSDP, alpha builds are delivered during the initial coding phase in order to validate functionality. The focus is on validating that the requirements are met and not on finding defects.

CRUD Matrix

Definition: CRUD is an acronym that stands for create, read, update, and delete. A CRUD matrix documents what objects (such as forms and reports) access what data elements in a database. It can help you test your software on large projects and is useful for maintaining a large application. If you make changes in one area, a CRUD matrix can tell you what other areas will need to be tested.

Tip: Have someone else test your program!
If you are a single developer, try to find someone else to exercise your program. As the programmer, you have certain ideas of how a user will use your application. These ideas probably apply to about half the users.

Topic: Testing Websites

Tip: Test Using Common Browsers
Test each website with various common browsers. As of early 2008, we test each website we build with Internet Explorer, FireFox, and Safari. Sometimes we also include Opera as part of our standard test suite. The minimum resolution we test for "regular" websites is 1024x768 (and higher). We no longer support 800x600.

Q&A: QC versus QA
Question: What is the difference between quality control and quality assurance?

Answer:

Qulity assurance is a process in which you compare the deliverable to the requirements to verify the deliverable meets the need. Quality control is a process employed to ensure a certain level of quality. Prestwood Software Development Process is an example of a process used in quality control to ensure a certain level of quality.

Quality Control

A process employed to ensure a certain level of quality in each deliverable such as a requirements specification, a design specification, the final delivered software, etc.

For software developers, the software development process is the process employed to ensure a certain level of quality. Prestwood Software Development Process (PSDP) is such a process. To learn more about PSDP, go to the PSDP Process Page.
