Test Prompts typically refer to prompts or cues that are designed to trigger a specific behavior or action within an app in order to test its functionality or performance. For example, if you are testing a messaging app, a test prompt might be a message that contains a specific character or word that is known to trigger a bug or error in the app. By sending this message and observing the app's response, you can test whether the app is functioning correctly and identify any issues that need to be addressed.
Test prompts help check an app by covering various situations like common user inputs, rare cases, and surprising questions. Testers can make these prompts by hand or use AI algorithms that mimic real-life user actions. This process ensures the AI can manage different scenarios, understand context, and give correct and useful answers.
By using test prompts, testers can find and fix problems before the app reaches users.
