In this video, Meaghan Lewis quantifies a risk associated with each scenario as a step in determining if the scenario should be automated or not. Collaborate with your team to determine the risk of each test scenario.
- Now we'll go through each scenario…and assign it a risk score from one to five.…The risk is determined based on two factors:…One, the impact of the feature.…If it's broken, what will the impact be to customers?…And two, the probability of use.…How often will this feature be used by customers?…The first scenario I'll evaluate for risk…is viewing products for sale.…This is a high impact feature…and has high probability of use.…
I'll give this a score of five.…Next is add an item to cart.…This is high impact, and high probability,…so I'll give this a score of five as well.…Another scenario is adding multiple items to the cart.…This is high impact, and will likely be used often.…I'll give this score of four.…The final scenario is order checkout.…This is the highest impact feature…and certainly has a high probability of use.…So this one also gets a score of five.…
I'll repeat the same process…for the rest of the scenarios.…Here you can see the final risk scores.…Risk allows teams to think about…how often a feature will be used,…
