Conceptual Schema-Centric Development (CSCD) has been quali ed as a grand challenge for many researchers in Information Systems (IS). It reformulates the historical goal of automating IS building but emphasizing that the Conceptual Schema (CS) should be the center of the development. CSCD requires explicit, complete, executable and correct CSs. In this context, testing becomes critical in the conceptual modeling activity. Test-Driven Conceptual Modeling (TDCM) is proposed as a new development method to obtain a correct and complete CS. TDCM applies to conceptual modeling the essential ideas of Test-Driven Development(TDD), an emerging test- rst eXtreme Programming (XP) method. Our research proposal pretends to contribute to the IS research community by developing the TDCM method and a tool to put it into practice.
