The Level of Effort we’re estimating is based on t-shirt sizing and is generally based on the level of effort for the developers that are part of the team and not really the amount of time QA or POs need to put into a ticket. And then we usually just bump it up one size based on uncertainty, e.g., if a product owner writes “add new Facebook feature – details to come later”, that sounds like probably a small to medium (5-8 points) but based on the vagueness we might initially size it as a medium-large (8-13 points) depending on what else we’re guessing about it till we get the details. And then we can always re-estimate the points for a story up until the point a sprint starts and then no more re-estimating points.
