Types of testing in validating website
The HTML5 test does not try to test all of the new features offered by HTML5, nor does it try to test the functionality of each feature it does detect.
Despite these shortcomings we hope that by quantifying the level of support users and web developers will get an idea of how hard the browser manufacturers work on improving their browsers and the web as a development platform.
Part of the role of the Product Owner is to define what features should look like ahead of a sprint, elicit any customer feedback needed during development, and speak for the user if necessary. I’ve even heard people incorrectly say things like “my industry can’t test in an Agile way because of X regulation.” For instance, in Medical Devices you need to make sure you are in compliance with FDA regulations / guidance like 21 CFR part 11 and ISO 13485, which have more focused Validation requirements and a lot more focus on risk and documentation.
Verification activities are fairly straightforward and often done via automation. One thing I know several Medical Device or other regulated teams do is Exploratory or Session Testing; this can be a great tool especially with mixed software/hardware devices.
The use of tests and other selection procedures can be a very effective means of determining which applicants or employees are most qualified for a particular job.
However, use of these tools can violate the federal anti-discrimination laws if an employer intentionally uses them to discriminate based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, or age (40 or older).
(To see the testimony of these witnesses, please see the EEOC’s website at This fact sheet provides technical assistance on some common issues relating to the federal anti-discrimination laws and the use of tests and other selection procedures in the employment process.
In the future new tests will be added for new specifications and existing tests will be updated when the specifications change.
This will allow us to spend more time on HTML5and acquire more devices for our testing lab.
In a more traditional Waterfall process, with Specifications and Requirements defined at the start, Validation is often performed at the end of the testing cycle.
You spend tons of time defining a product, build it, make sure your software was bug-free, and then do user acceptance testing, or submit it to a client / users, perhaps even a Beta release.
