Two Approaches to Testing a Subway Exit

Watch the video.
a. What is the requirement(s) being solved?

b. Compare and contrast the "steps" versus "escalator" groups.
Describe one instance of  testing that you saw versus checking.

What does "efficient" and "effective" mean for each group? Test variation? Test coverage?
Describe how the tests are under control, and how evidence during the test was collected.
What does "test repeatability" mean for each group?
How is each group mentally and emotionally engaged in the task?

c. Describe an instance where your testing looks/sounds/feels like the stairs. Like the escalator.
Did you intentionally make that choice when you designed the task?  Why or why not?
