New to the field of QA, I've been asked to do SQA for a project that I'm unfamiliar with and that is close to completion. An example of a specific functional task to be tested looks like the following:
51: Rename Excluded Words at the Topic and Subtopic levels to be Not in Topic and Not in SubTopic
I could see how if I was the developer who built the project or had I been roped in on this since the beginning, then it'd be fairly obvious to "Click here" and then "Click this button in the drop down" followed by ... etc, etc. But because I'm new to this project and it's relatively large, I don't know the steps required to actually get the part where I "rename excluded words".
The above is just an actual example, but my goal here is to gain some insight that I can apply to my practice in general.
If the SQA is new on a project already in development, should the developer provide steps needed to perform the function to be tested?
