The Correct Answer option has been Hi-lighted in Yellow.

Q. 61: (Level K2) Which out of the following TWO testing tasks can be taken by the independent testing team on agile projects?


A. Non Functional testing.
B. Story level testing activities.
C. System Integration testing.
D. Story level automation activities.


Explanation in favor of the correct answer:

Option (A) is True - as an independent testing team can work on non-functional testing which is an iteration-independent activity.

Option (B) is False - as story level testing involves working closely with the developer so there is a chance to lose test independence.

/>

Option (C) is True - as an independent testing team can work on the test levels like system integration testing that might not fit well within a sprint.

Option (D) is False - as automation testing activities involve working closely with the developer so there is a chance to lose test independence.

B. Engage the independent test team In the release planning to understand the risk.
C. Engage the independent team carrying out test levels that might not fit well within a sprint.

Explanation in favor of the correct answer:

Option (A) is False - as testers working on the iteration should be engaged in iteration related activities, not the independent test team.

Option (B) is False - as testers working on the iteration should be engaged in release planning, not the independent test team.

Option (C) is True - as an independent testing team can carry out test levels e.g. system integration testing, that might not fit well within a sprint.

What is the BEST action point from a Tester’s point of view?


A. There is nothing the tester can do so he should start working on test case preparation for stories which can be included in the next sprint.

B. This is a blocker and should be communicated in the daily stand-up meeting so the team can help resolve the issue or look for alternative solutions to finish testing.

C. Environment downtime can be used effectively to work on the automation of test cases.

D. The tester should document this so it can be raised in the retrospective as this may impact the testing for the current sprint.


Explanation in favor of the correct answer:

Option (A) is False – as tester alone can't determine the stories for the next sprints. They should be addressed by the entire team during sprint planning.

Option (B) is True – as issues that may block test progress should be communicated In the daily stand-up meetings so the whole team is made aware of the issue(s) and can work together to find a suitable solution(s).

Option (C) is False – as automation activities are planned in parallel to testing activities, not during downtime.

Option (D) is False – as retrospectives cover topics such as the process, people, organizations, relationships, and tools. Blockers should be raised in daily stand-up meetings.
