  1. 1. Test Levels and Test Types<br />Two questions from ISTQB (Foundation Level)<br />
  2. 2. QUESTIONS<br />Question 1. Which of the following is a test type?<br />a. Component testing<br />b. Functional testing<br />c. System testing<br />d. Acceptance testing<br />Question 2. A regression test:<br />a. Is only run once.<br />b. Will always be automated.<br />c. Will check unchanged areas of the software to see if they have been affected.<br />d. Will check changed areas of the software to see if they have been affected.<br />
  3. 3. Test Levels<br />Testing is not a stand-alone activity. It has its place within a software development life cycle.<br />V-model<br />
  4. 4. Test Types<br />Test types are introduced as a means of clearly defining the objective of a certain test level for a programme or project.<br />A test type is focused on a particular test objective, which could be the<br />testing of a function to be performed by the component or system; <br />a non-functional quality characteristic, such as reliability or usability; <br />the structure or architecture of the component or system;<br />or related to changes, i.e. confirming that defects have been fixed (confirmation testing, or re-testing) and<br />looking for unintended changes (regression testing).<br />
  5. 5.
