This page has suggestions for developers on how to write good testing instructions for the weekly testing of integrated issues.

We recommend that you:

  1. Number the steps in your test, and make use of sub-lists.
  2. Promote test validations - Confirm, Verify or Ensure - should be in bold so that they are easily identifiable.
  3. Only put one test validation on each line - A test step should only have one test validation at a time.
  4. Make use of the Jira Markdown formatting.

In addition, the following items may be included:

  1. Setup requirements. If so, provide a link to the documentation e.g. https://docs.moodle.org/en/OAuth_2_services if necessary writing something in the dev docs.
  2. Whether testing may be done using the Moodle QA testing site.
  3. Whether the Boost and / or Clean theme should be used.
  4. Whether more than one browser should be used. (Tester should specify which browsers they used.)
  5. Whether extra testing around the issue is required.
