The Challenge

Ensuring seamless cross-device compatibility and functionality

Given the vast digital landscape, ensuring your digital product and its core features run smoothly on every device, software and OS combination can be a daunting challenge.

From the beta phase to post-release, bugs are inevitable. What sets a successful product apart is testing throughout the entire development lifecycle.

Our crowdtesters diligently follow specific and detailed test cases step-by-step, based on your specific requirements where almost every click during functional testing is planned.

Alternatively, our testers follow a given scenario, with a significant emphasis on documenting each action taken by our testers.

Afterwards, you can easily export bugs to a bug tracker software like JIRA. This streamlined testing process allows for immediate bug resolution and optimization of your core functions.

TEST-CASE BASED TESTING

Test your core functions step-by-step

Testers diligently follow specific and detailed test cases step-by-step, based on your specific requirements. Therefore, the entire testing process is broken down into smaller steps that testers must follow.

SCENARIO-BASED TESTING

Test by following a scenario

To cover the core features of your product, our testers will complete specified, alternative, negative or abuse scenarios and document each action taken in the test. 

Addons Test Case Creation

Add-on: Test Case Creation

With Test Case Creation, detailed test cases are designed, written, and maintained by certified testing experts, developers, and IT specialists from our Crowd. These simple and transparent test cases are also double-checked by our experienced project managers, before delivering them to your crowdtesters.

Addons Retesting

Add-on: Retesting

As a supplementary service to structured testing, retesting allows you to systematically validate fixes for bugs uncovered by our crowdtesters within your test cases. While regression testing involves verifying that new code changes have not negatively impacted existing functionalities, retesting focuses on confirming that previously identified defects have been fixed.

What is Structured Testing?

One part of quality assurance testing, Structured Testing are scripted or structured testings that have testers follow detailed test scripts or specific scenarios to identify bugs and other malfunctions. Scripted testing is a type of software QA that can be used to test each and every functionality of a digital product, especially its core features.

For the test-case based testing, the entire testing process is broken down into smaller steps. Of course, those steps are highly dependent on the specified goals and the expected outcome of the system testing. When performing a structured test-case based test, testers need to follow the test case of a specific functionality step-by-step.

In the scenario-based approach our testers will complete specified, alternative, negative or abuse scenarios. It comes with less effort in scenario creation and maintenance compared to a test-case approach.

When you want to do software quality assurance (SQA) by using a scripted or structured test, you need an experienced QA manager to write the high-level scripts for the QA testers. Our QA experts need to make sure that the testers have a clear idea of what should happen.

For example, when testers are asked to click a button or fill in a form, the test cases have to include instructions about the expected outcome of their actions. Only that way can you properly check if your digital product is working as intended.

THIS OR THAT

What’s the differences between a structured and exploratory test?

When it comes to goals and search results, Structured Testing and Exploratory Testing differ significantly.

The biggest difference lies in the control over what testers are doing.

When conducting an exploratory test, you let testers freely look for bugs you wouldn’t expect. On the other hand, in a structured test, you focus on the key functionality of your digital product. Looking elsewhere is not required in a scripted bug test, as testers must follow the test case step-by-step or follow specific scenarios.

Following a strict test-case ensures that all testers test the same functionalities, and that every core feature of your digital product will be checked. However, this offers no room for testers to find alternative ways of fulfilling the given task and therefore might narrow down the outcome.

The scenario-based testing delves deeper than exploratory testing by using a structured format but not having the intensive work to create clear and detailed step-by-step tasks and maintain those test cases.

A structured test might be suitable if you want to check core features and/or make sure that your digital product is running bug-free on every device, software, operating system, and browser. A structured bug test gives you easily comparable results in a very short time.

Another advantage of a scripted bug test is exactly this strict setup. It makes tracking with issue trackers, like JIRA or on a Confluence page, very easy, as every ticket is tied to a certain test scenario.

Opting for a regression test using structured testing is preferable, given that the results for all test runs are highly comparable.
