Lesson video

In progress...


Hi there, I'm Rebecca, your computing teacher for the programming part six unit.

For this lesson, you are going to need a pen and paper so that you can write down your testing for your code that you created in your last lesson.

You're also going to need your Repl account and your code from last lesson too.

Your Repl account, you should've already setup with your parent or parent's permission.

Now it's going to be a really good idea as well to make sure and remove as many distractions as you possibly can so that you can really focus in this lesson.

Once you've got all of that ready we can begin.

In this lesson, you will perform final testing of the solution to a challenging problem.

I'd like you to start then, by writing down the definitions to these three things.

So erroneous data, boundary data, and normal data.

Pause the video while you have a go at that.

So erroneous data then: This type of data should not be accepted by he programme or it will cause and error.

For example, an integer is entered when a string is required.

You've then got boundary data.

This type of data should be accepted by the programme and is valid.

It is used to check that values entered at the boundary of a range will be accepted.

And then you've got normal data.

This type of data should be accepted by the programme and is valid.

It is the normal data that you would expect to be entered into you programme.

So what I'd like you to do, then use your success criteria to help you develop a test plan for your programme.

Copy and complete the testing table on your worksheet.

And remember to include erroneous data, boundary, and normal testing data as well, to make sure that your programme is really robust.

Pause the video while you do that.

So what challenges have you faced? It is important to reflect on the challenges that you have faced during this project.

Use your code log from the previous lesson to make a not of your most challenging aspects of this project.

And you can use this to help you with what we're going to be doing in next lesson, which is to write an evaluation.

So you've done your testing, you made your code.

It's all working.

Next lesson, you are going to be evaluating your project to think about what was successful and was not so successful.

And maybe how it can improve next time you have a big project like this.

If you'd like to, please ask your parent or carer to show your work on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, tagging a Oak National, and hashtag Learn With Oak.

And I'll see you again soon for the final lesson in this programme and unit.
