What it means
An explanation of the significance of the statements under this heading.
How to do it

creating a separate document describing techniques in more detail.
What to Test
The aspects of the delivered content that an external validator could examine to assess
conformance with the Best Practice statements. This section is not present for process related
In this section it is noted whether the statement is Machine Testable (Automated testing
is possible) or Human Testable (Testing requires human assessment). Some Best Practices are
partially machine testable, i.e. based on the result of an automated test, some human
interaction may be required. In such cases both a Machine Testable and a Human Testable
statement are present.
Some Best Practice statements use words such as “minimize” and “avoid” which are
intentionally non-prescriptive. This is in order to provide guidance while leaving room to
accommodate a wide variety of applications whose requirements cannot be anticipated. It
also allows creativity and diversity within the same Best Practice framework. More
prescriptive advice can be found in the Techniques document.
