It couldn't be easier if you follow the advice to have a test/1 function
that is exported instead of calling the functions individually.

-module(foo).
-export([test/1]).
    
test(1) -> ...;			% The test cases you want to
test(77) -> ...;		% override or
test(102) -> ...;		% add go here
test(X) -> bar:test(X).		% Then you "inherit" from module bar.
