Group DevelopersGroup Documentation writersGroup Moodle HQGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Testers

Hi everyone!

With Moodle 2.5 due for release next month, we're once again running a QA testing cycle, starting today: Moodle 2.5 QA.

The new cycle has less tests than the 2.4 QA cycle, as over a hundred tests have been automated as part of the Behat project in Moodle (with thanks to David Monllaó), and are now run automatically every week. In addition to removing tests from the cycle, lots of new tests have been added to cover new features in Moodle 2.5.

If you'd like to have a play with Moodle 2.5 on our Moodle QA testing site and at the same time help with QA testing, please read the QA testing guide and contact me if you'd like to be added to the testers group in the Moodle Tracker. New testers are always welcome. smile

We're aiming for a 100% pass rate of QA tests within the next few weeks, so all help is much appreciated!

What a wonderful response! Many thanks everyone for volunteering and a special thanks to all of you who have already run some tests. According to the QA testing dashboard, we currently have 69 tests passed (15%) and 13 tests failed (2%). approve

Nikunj and everyone else who has contacted me to-date, I have added you to the testers group in the Moodle Tracker, so you too can pass or fail QA tests. New testers are always welcome if anyone else wishes to volunteer.

Hi Helen,

Just started to test MDLQA-5610, and everything is OK.

But it seems i don't have rights to modify anything, and mark the test as passed...

Sorry about that Séverin, I've just added you now to the testers group in the tracker; I've also added you Ayush.

You'll obtain a testers group icon when I next update the testing credits (within the next few weeks).

Re: the testers group in the tracker and on moodle.org
Group DevelopersGroup Documentation writersGroup Moodle HQGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Testers

Yes, just to clarify, the testers group in the tracker gives members permissions to pass or fail QA tests and add comments, whereas the testers group on moodle.org is for recongising testers by giving them an icon next to their forum posts.

Hopefully when moodle.org is upgraded to 2.5 we can make use of the new badges feature and award testers a badge!

My moodle username and password is not working on Q&A testing site. It seems that I'm not registered on the QA testing site as I have tried 'forgotton password' but didn't receive any email.

Is there any preferred browser for Q&A site?

Re: Help needed with Moodle 2.5 QA testing
Group DevelopersGroup Documentation writersGroup Moodle HQGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Testers

Vinita, you can log in to the QA testing site with one of the test accounts provided on the front page - for manager, teacher or student, depending on what you want to test.

The QA testing site is an ordinary Moodle site running the latest dev version, currently 2.5 beta, and so the browser requirements are the same as for any other site: Google Chrome 11, Firefox 4, Safari 5, Internet Explorer 8 (IE 10 required for drag and drop of files from outside the browser into Moodle) (copied from the Moodle 2.5 release notes).

Re: admin access to the QA testing site

Thanks Raju and Iain, I've added you to the testers group in the tracker too.

If any tester would like admin access to the QA testing site (as certain tests require it), please contact me. We don't provide a public admin account for the QA site, like we do for the Moodle demo site, as lots of people playing can quickly mess up the site, however testers are welcome to make use of the QA site admin account.

I also think that, when you've done the required tests, it's a good idea to make them again (before clicking "pass"), trying to use characters with accents (for names, folder names, filenames) or special characters.

Because sometimes they may not be well handled thoughtful

+1 for me.

We were planning to update to 2.4 (from 2.3) this summer, well our chief admin will be whilst I'm on paternity leave, but if 2.5 will be out and initial post-release issues ironed out, and we don't find any major objectionable changes in a test installation (the big thing that pissed us off was loss of per-user AJAX on/off setting in 2.3) we might get up to 2.5.

Hi David - Off topic from the original purpose of the thread but - I don't know if you already have it but there is a local plugin that you can add to allow individual users to turn Ajax on and off - called 'profileswitches'

Thanks Alan, Jeffrey and David, I've added you to the testers group in the tracker.

Many thanks again to everyone for helping with QA testing.

According to the QA testing dashboard, we're currently on 290 tests passed (64%) and 12 tests failed (2%) in just 4 days of testing! Great work everyone! approve

Developers are busy fixing all the problems identified in test failures so that the tests can be reset and run again. As with previous QA cycles, we're aiming for a 100% pass rate before releasing Moodle 2.5. Thus, more testers are always welcome!

We will definitely be looking at creating some badges on moodle.org after the site is upgraded to 2.5.

In the meantime, everyone who has helped with the 2.5 QA cycle is listed in the Testing credits. Also, testers who are enrolled in this course are included in the testers group and have a testers icon / badge next to their forum posts.

Many thanks again everyone for your help. smile
