Session Based Testing (Exploratory Testing)

Last updated: June 01, 2017

PractiTest now includes a new type of test that supports Exploratory and Session Based Testing practices.

  • Quick and intuitive – Create Exploratory tests as test instances “on the go”
  • Run Exploratory Testing Sessions and create annotations for easy tracking and collaboration
  • Report Issues from run – works with all your existing project’s integrations

Exploratory tests in PT allow you to define Charters for your ET Sessions, document annotations as you are running your tests, report bugs directly from your runs, and finally to review your ET sessions with colleagues in order to gather feedback.

Unlike other tests, which are created first in the Test Library and then added to any Test Set (new or existing) before running, the Exploratory Test is created as an instance in the TestSet and Runs module “on the go”, which is more intuitive and supportive for exploratory testing methodology.
Now your Test Sets can contain all types of tests at once: automated, manual and exploratory. This ability to combine various tests improve QA coverage and trace-ability.
