Advisement [VC-TBD/BPD07] v1

User Acceptance Test Overview

The information below is intended to provide colleges guidance on  performing a User Acceptance Test on this business process.  The  business process shown in the flow diagrams below may be only part of  what is needed to complete an end-to-end test of a full business cycle.   Coordination with other colleagues at your college in advance of  commencing testing is key to success. In the same way that it doesn't  take a single individual to operate the business of running a college it  will require coordination across departments to successfully test a  business flow from beginning to end.

When testing the Advising process it will be important to test the advising of students that have varying intentions for their learning experience, such as:

  • Needing to take courses to ready themselves for entry into a program.
  • Taking courses that align with their eligibility for Financial Aid.
  • Seeking a short-term certificate.
  • Ensuring assessment test scores meet minimum criteria for taking required courses.
