Quality Assurance

The RCOE Quality Assurance (QA) unit exists to establish and maintain standards of product excellence in the areas of Galaxy Business Systems and business reports.  In cooperation with the software development team, the Change Advisory Committee, and subject matter experts, the QA team BETA tests Galaxy screens and reports to ensure their behavior and output is expected and accurate.  These BETA tests are designed to evaluate whether or not the purposes of the screens are being met while adhering to district requirements, legal obligations, and practical considerations.

In the ever-changing world of software development, QA strives to use best practices of the software quality assurance industry for its testing. QA serves as the release management function in the software development and deployment process for Riverside County Office of Education.

If you have questions about Quality Assurance, please contact us through the Service Desk:
