The bulk of Epicentre’s testing for Scholastic was a combination of exhaustive functionality testing and cross-compatibility testing across a range of Windows and Mac OS platforms. Briefs for individual projects were consistent in this, although Epicentre also performed more technical networking and RM CC3 tests when required.
Epicentre offered Scholastic a wide range of potential resources, from hundreds of different OS and browser combinations to RM network testing. An assortment of hardware specifications are often employed in order to determine a realistic minimum spec for a new line of products. As Scholastic’s staff tend towards more traditional non-IT skill sets, Epicentre provide clear and jargon-free reports on all testing. Additional technical information is available, on request, to pass along to developers.
Most of Scholastic’s titles came in series of multiple discs, usually spread out over several weeks or months. It was important that each disc received the same testing – and also that the correct test requirements are established before the first is tested. Epicentre and Scholastic worked together to plan and schedule the testing. Epicentre and Scholastic developed a strong relationship during the years they worked together because we provided them with testing and support they knew they knew they could depend on.
