Conducting a Dry Run of Your Test
Learn tips for conducting dry runs of your tests to catch any errors before launch.
In this course, we discuss how to conduct a dry run of your test.
A dry run is when you or a colleague walk through the entire test, prior to sending it out to a real participant. Doing so is important because you don't want participants wasting their time finding errors that your team could have found.
Some teams use the term "dry run" interchangeably with "pilot." However, best practice is to be disciplined when it comes to the terminology to use. Use the term "dry run" when talking about you or a co-worker walking through the test. Use the term "pilot" when you are running the test with a real participant. See our other course on running pilot tests.
