morning by 9:00 a.m. Each test release shall include a test item transmittal report. The test item transmittal report will describe the results of the automated build and smoke test associated with the release. Upon receipt of the test release, if the smoke test was successful, the test manager will install it in the test lab. Testing will commence on Monday morning once the new weekly release is installed.
Should the test team not receive a test release, or if the smoke test results are negative, or if the release will not install, or should the release arrive without a transmittal report, the test manager shall immediately contact the configuration management team manager. If the problem is not resolved within one hour, the test manager shall notify the project manager and continue testing against the previous week's release, if possible. If the test release fails installation, addition-ally the test analyst who attempted the installation shall file an incident report.
Assume that you are working as the test manager on this project. Suppose that you have received two working, installable, testable releases so far. On Monday of the third week, you do not receive the test release.
Which of the following courses of action is consistent with the test plan?
A. Filing an incident report describing the time and date at which you first noticed the missing test release
B. Creating a test procedure specification that describes how to install a test release
C. Sending an SMS text to the configuration management team manager
D. Send an e-mail to the project manager and the configuration management team manager
<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>
Q. 52: Assume that on Monday afternoon you finally receive a test release. When your lead test analyst attempts to install it, the database configuration scripts included in the installation terminate in midstream. An error message is presented on the database server in Cyrillic script, though the chosen language is U.S. English. At that point, the database tables are corrupted and any attempt to use the application under test results in various database connection error messages (which are at least presented in U.S. English).
Consider the following possible actions:
I. Notifying the configuration management team manager
II. Notifying the project manager
III. Filing an incident report
IV. Attempting to repeat the installation
V. Suspending testing
VI. Continuing testing
Which of the following sequence of actions is in the correct order, is the most reasonable, and is most consistent with the intent of the test plan?
A. I, II, V
B. V, I, IV,III, I
C. VI, II, I, III, IV
D. II, I, V

Sample Questions in context of ISTQB Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst Exam Syllabus - Chapter 10: People Skills & Team Composition
Q. 53: Assume you are a technical test analyst working on a banking project to upgrade an existing automated teller machine system to allow customers to obtain cash advances from supported credit cards. You are unable to obtain information about the minimum & maximum throughput of the connections between the automated teller machine and the payment processing networks, which is not included in the design specification. Which of the following is an example of a good way to communicate that problem in an e-mail?
A. "Until I receive a complete specification of throughput between ATMs and network, no progress on test design can occur"
B. "When will it be possible to know the maximum & minimum throughput of the ATM / network connections? Test design is impeded by a lack of clarity here."
C. "Here we go again. The design specification is incomplete and ambiguous."
D. Do not communicate the problem; just log the delaying effect of the information problem & be ready to explain the delays to the management when they ask.
