​​Testing and validation

​Programming a system is a complex process. It has many modules that are further divided into sub-modules. Each sub-module performs a dedicated function. It is important to plan and anticipate things that might go wrong in the system. This ensures that the program has minimum errors and is efficient enough in real-time.

This ​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​​​​testing and validation  to your students, explaining:

  • ​Types of errors
  • How to create a program considering real-time problems that might arise when it is executed with different sorts of input?
  • Different types test data in testing
  • Trace tables: finding and correcting errors in algorithms
