Which out of the following TWO reasons best indicate why this is a more important skill on Agile projects than on traditional projects?

i. Agile team is cross-functional so all members can help in each other's task. This also enables them to help developers.

Statement (ii) is False - as in Test Driven Development, Automated unit tests are written by the developers, not by testers.

Statement (iii) is False - as Agile projects require both white box and black box testing.

Statement (iv) is False - as Pair programming is typically done using two developers; testers are not expected to improve program logic.

Statement (v) is True – Obvious definition of agile project.

Q. 83: (Level K2) Why is test automation a more necessary skill on Agile projects for Testers than on traditional projects?

Select TWO reasons from following statements.

i. Features can change in future iterations. Automated tests are necessary to reduce the regression risk due to rapid changes.

ii. All feature validation testing should be done in the same iteration. In practice, that can only be realized by automated tests.

iii. Regression testing is a parallel process occurring throughout the iteration. This can only be achieved by automating the tests.

iv. All tests for the iteration are required to be finished in the iteration. This is not possible without Automation tests.

A. i & ii
B. ii & v
C. iv & v
D. i and iii

Explanation in favor of the correct answer:

Statement (i) is True - as automated tests are required to keep up with frequent changes.

Statement (ii) is False - as feature validation tests are mostly done manually.

Statement (iii) is True - as this involves re-running the automated unit and feature verification tests from the current and previous iterations, usually via a continuous integration framework.

Statement (iv) is False - as automation acceptance tests are not used to finish all the testing In the current iteration they primary use is to make sure the functionality is not impacted due to new changes in the following iterations.

Statement (v) is False - as neither automation nor manual testing is more important than the other in Agile projects.
