The Automated Testing with Selenium Competency benchmark measures your knowledge of setting up, configuring, and working with Selenium Grid. You will be evaluated on your skills in managing inline frames and JavaScript alerts, working with checkboxes, and testing confirmation/prompt pop-ups using Selenium. You will also be evaluated on your ability to handle Google Chrome security pop-ups, test authentication windows with Selenium and AutoIt, and implement conditional and unconditional synchronization. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to automate testing using Selenium and AutoIt, as well as automate web page navigation and download files.
