How to create good acceptance criteria

An acceptance criterion has to be expressed very clearly, without any ambiguity. To respect this principle, Testerum uses the Given/ When/ Then convention, also known as the Gherkin syntax. This particular case of using a convention, will connect the business concept of cause and effect to the operational concept of input - process - output. . Given [an initial concept- input-preconditions] When [a certain type of event occurs- action- process] Then [outcome- output- result]

Acceptance Criteria Convention

Using this convention, Testerum offers higher documentations standards. In order to create a thorough list of scenarios, business people are more inclined to follow a BDD approach when discussing with the development team.
