I have been looking around for a simple quality assurance test plan that my students could use for developing multi-page websites. I haven’t found one that really seemed to cover the bases. So I made one up.
This is not a testing process, rather a guide for what should be asked. To put this in context – My students have to create a multipage website including graphics, images and potentially video and animation using Cascading style sheets to render the formatting and layout.
Here is what I came up with.
|Check all text||Check test for errors or issues with:
is it Relevance and in Context
is suitable for the Target audience?
is it Appropriate?
is it Accurate?
|Text that is grammatically correct and makes sense to the target audience|
|Check all graphics||Is the image appropriate?
Is the image relevant?
Is the file format is web suitable?
Consider image resolution, file size & Pixilation?
Is the folder structure suitable ?
Is Alt text included and accurate?
Is the Legal and comply with copyright and fair use?
|Images and graphics that are clear, viewable, fast loading and appropriate for the purpose and audience|
|Check all anchors/links||Are the links accurate?
Do they functioning as expected?
Are the pages loading appropriately – suitable targets – self, new page etc?
Are the linked pages suitable?
|Anchors and links that are accurate and working|
|Check forms and mailto links||Are form labels are appropriate and descriptive?
Are the data collection elements are suitable and function as expected?
Do the form Submit correctly and check results
Check error messages
|Forms that deliver accurate information to the appropriate person/client|
|Check layout & CSS||Does the page render as expected?
Does the CSS work as expected?
Is the pages suitable for the audience?
Does the page have:
|A site that suits the audience and the purpose
Pages that are consistent and in harmony
|Client testing||Does it work as expected?
Does it appear as planned?
Are all the features present?
|A site that is suitable for the purpose and audience
A site that matches the plans and refinements
|End-user testing||Does it work?
Is it easy to navigate?
Can I easily access the information required?
|An easy to use experience for the end user at a site that is fit for purpose and the audience|
Love some feedback, what have I forgotten? (here is the file as aPDF - Simple Quality Assurance Test Plan)
