I have a scheduler class that looks like this

global class PBEntryUpdateScheduler implements Schedulable {

    public static String executionTime = '0 0 3 * * ?';

    global static String scheduleMe() {
        PBEntryUpdateScheduler ScheduleClass = new PBEntryUpdateScheduler(); 
        return System.schedule('Batch execution', executionTime, ScheduleClass);

    global void execute(SchedulableContext ctx) {

        PBEntryUpdateBatch b1 = new PBEntryUpdateBatch();


But so far my test coverage is only 57%. My test class looks like this:

private class PBEntryUpdateSchedulerTest {

    @isTest static void testScheduleMe() {


        PBEntryUpdateScheduler bpEntry = new PBEntryUpdateScheduler();
        String newExeTime = '0 0 3 * * ?';
        String jobId = System.schedule('Scheduler Test', newExeTime, bpEntry);




Can anyone help in getting the code coverage to 75%?

  • note using Keith's answer, you should also assert that an asyncApexJob was created as otherwise you're not proving that a schedulable was started – cropredy Jan 6 at 18:03

Launching via the static method - presumably added to make that simple - should help:

@isTest static void testScheduleMe() {

    // Set up any data needed for the code to work


    // Assert that the results you expect are present
