As an election official, you’ve probably been part of software development projects where you’ve felt like an outsider in the process. Sometimes the people in IT seem to speak a different language when it comes to important details.
In this free webinar, the Center for Technology and Civic Life and our partners at the Center for Civic Design demystify what you need to know about testing electronic data transfer modernizations (and other software projects!). You’ll learn vocabulary and the steps for structuring and monitoring the process, from setting acceptance criteria to testing the user experience.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
Understand software and data quality assurance testing
Help ensure voter registration data accuracy by taking ownership over the transfer process
Plan and coordinate with your agency partners and the tech team to meet your acceptance criteria
Know when and how to contribute your election expertise
Use scenarios – small stories – to test the software and the data, and there’s even a formula for writing them
