Summary: In order for a team to get really good at User Stories, they need to learn to be able to efficiently express their story tests. Story tests are also known as “User Story Acceptance Tests”, “Acceptance Tests”, “Confirmations”, and “Test Confirmations.” In this article, I list the most basic styles for expressing Story Tests:
- Style 1: Bullet Points
- Style 2: “Test with…”
- Style 3: “Test that…”
- Style 4: Given/When/Then
- Style 5: Specification By Example – Conceptual Form
- The Best Style: Mix and Match!
