Test Levels and Test Types Two questions from ISTQB (Foundation Level)
QUESTIONS Question 1. Which of the following is a test type? a. Component testing b. Functional testing c. System testing d. Acceptance testing Question 2. A regression test: a. Is only run once. b. Will always be automated. c. Will check unchanged areas of the software to see if they have been affected. d. Will check changed areas of the software to see if they have been affected.
Test Levels Testing is not a stand-alone activity. It has its place within a software development life cycle. V-model
Test Types Test types are introduced as a means of clearly defining the objective of a certain test level for a programme or project. A test type is focused on a particular test objective, which could be the testing of a function to be performed by the component or system; a non-functional quality characteristic, such as reliability or usability; the structure or architecture of the component or system; or related to changes, i.e. confirming that defects have been fixed (confirmation testing, or re-testing) and looking for unintended changes (regression testing).
Test Levels and Types Which of the following are test types and which are test levels? Functional testing Component testing Integration testing Structural testing Confirmation and Regression testing System testing Non-functional testing Acceptance testing
