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

Q. 116: (Level K3) There is a new feature in scope for the current sprint which will result in changes to the existing database tables. The testers on the team realize that this change can introduce bugs and it may require major changes in the existing scripts and the automation framework.

What is the best course of action for the testers to take?



A. The testers will calculate the extra time required and update the team that they have to work extra hours in order to update the existing test scripts and automation framework In the existing sprint plan.

B. The testers will notify the team of the issue. A risk analysis is done and the team decides what regression testing must be performed to find the defects introduced by the new changes. The testers will update the sprint plan by adding tasks to modify the framework and scripts to support the new changes.

C. The current testing tasks need to be completed for the sprint. The testers continue with their existing sprint plan and make no changes to the test automation framework or scripts.

D. The testers will stop what they are doing and start working on the automation framework & script modifications and communicate with the team that any other testing work for the sprint will have to be pushed to the next iteration.


Explanation in favor of the correct answer:

Option (A) is False - as risk analysis should be done including the whole team and a collaborative decision should be made.

Option (B) is True - as the decision to modify the test automation framework and scripts should be done collaboratively with the whole team. The tester is then responsible to make changes to the iteration plan as required.

Option (C) is False - as the tester must notify the team who will then decide what to do with the issue.

Option (D) is False - as tester alone must not be made responsible to determine the scope of work. This issue will be addressed by creating a new user story or modifying an existing user story and will be addressed by the entire team during sprint planning.
