Identify the points at which progress will be measured
Document them and communicate them to all involved in the production
|Determine the methods to be used in testing the product||
Identify the various methods and levels of testing for multimedia
Determine the characteristics and appropriateness of methods of testing during development and testing the acceptability of the final product testing

|Test and review the multimedia product at agreed stages||
Determine the progress toward completion at the identified reporting points
Test what has been produced at the identified reporting points
Provide feedback to staff on progress and quality
Use the testing strategy to ensure that the product satisfies its aims and the reason for which it was done
Document the testing process and record problems and remedial steps taken.
Deal with problems and faults detected during testing in accordance with agreed project or industry practice
|Evaluate the final product||
On completion evaluate the final product against the previously determined criteria Identify strategies that were successful and those that led to difficulties
Document the findings to inform subsequent projects
