Blog: Heuristic Approaches Everywhere

Recently I went to parent-teacher night at my 10-year-old stepson’s school. Above the door to his classroom is a list of heuristics for solving problems that I think is just dandy for testers. They’re not called heuristics there, but that’s what they are.

  • Use logical reasoning
  • Work backwards
  • Make a picture or diagram
  • Use or look for a pattern
  • Make it simpler
  • Guess and check
  • Use or make a table
  • Act out or use objects
  • Make an organized list
  • Brainstorm
