Part 4 of 12

Q. 31: What is Operational Acceptance Testing?

This form of acceptance testing is commonly performed by a System Administrator and would normally be concerned with ensuring that functionality such as; backup/restore, maintenance, and security functionality is present and behaves as expected.

Alpha Testing should be performed at the developerís site, and predominantly performed by internal testers only. Often, other company department personnel can act as testers. The marketing or sales departments are often chosen for this purpose.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 33: What is Beta Testing?

Beta Testing is commonly performed at the customerís site, and normally carried out by the customers themselves. Potential customers are often eager to trial a new product or new software version. This allows the customer to see any improvements at first hand and ascertain whether or not it satisfies their requirements. On the flip side, it gives invaluable feedback to the developer, often at little or no

Q. 34: What is a Re-Test?

It is imperative that when a fault is fixed it is re-tested to ensure the fault has indeed been correctly fixed.

Re-test: "Whenever a fault is detected and fixed then the software should be re-tested to ensure that the original fault has been successfully removed."

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 35: What is Regression Testing?

When checking a fixed fault, you can also consider checking that other existing functionality has not been adversely affected by the fix. This is called Regression Testing.

Regression Test: "Regression testing attempts to verify that modifications have not caused unintended adverse side effects in the unchanged software (regression faults) and that the modified system still meets its requirements."

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 36: What is a Test Plan Document?

A Test Plan should be a single document that basically contains what is going to be tested, why it is going to be tested, and how it is going to be tested. It is also important to clarify what is not going to be tested in the software product too. With regards to using a standard Test Plan layout, then we can look to the advice given by the IEEE(Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) located in the International Standard IEEE Std 929-1998.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 37: What is a Generic Test Process?

A standard test process that is commonly used exists within the BS7925-2 Standard for Software Component Testing:

# Test Planning
# Test Specification
# Test Execution
# Test Checking & Recording
# Checking for Test Completion

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 38: What is a Test Policy?

This should apply to both new projects and maintenance work. Normally fairly short in length, the test policy should be a high-level document, and should contain the following items:

# Definition of testing
# The testing process
# Evaluation of testing
# Quality levels
# Improvement approach

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 39: What is a Test Strategy?

Based on the test policy, the test strategy is designed to give an overview of the test requirements for a programme or even organization.

Information relating to risks should be documented here, specifically the risks that will be addressed by the testing, and the specific tests that will be used against each risk.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 40: What is a Project Plan?

Exactly how the test strategy for a particular project will be implemented is displayed in the project plan. The project test plan will normally be referenced from the overall project plan. In relation to the test strategy, the project plan should detail items from the test strategy that it is complying with, and also items it is not complying with.
