Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can start by first determining what it is that you will be testing in terms of features and functionality and build a spreadsheet-style reference around it with the ancitipated result and a space to record the actual result and any steps required to achieve the desired result, as well as the cost and effort of doing so. It is also customary to have test guidelines which provide context on the testing environment, the purpose for testing, the manner in which tests will be performed, how results recorded, how unanticipated results will be managed and acceptance criteria.
