There are four levels of testing that I like to do:
1) does the install succeed? (with all the meta packages selected)
2) does the ensuing boot process succeed?
3) do all the essential features of Ubuntu Studio work  (Jack,
Networking, Blender, firewire, etc...) ?
4) can I find any bugs in normal program usage?

This is an old wiki writeup on the subject:

This is where it should be for alpha & beta images:
This is where the daily builds can be found:

Hope that helps a bit.  If you have more questions don't hesitate to ask.
And please do write this up into the documentation, it would be
greatly appreciated.
