The role of a test plan is to prescribe the scope, approach, resources, and schedule of the testing activities. To identify the items being tested, the features to be tested, the testing tasks to be performed, the personnel responsible for each task, and the risks associated with this plan.
Test Plan Standards
IEEE Standard 829 on Software Testing Documentation
Tests which check the correctness of a particular module of code. By testing the parts of a program first and then testing the sum of its parts will make integration testing easier.
Tests that are executed to ensure there is a connection with the different logic layers
Occurs when the project is implemented with business computers outside the test area
Occurs when the finished project is implemented and is tested by users within the company
What is a Test Case?
A set of inputs, execution preconditions, and expected outcomes developed for a particular objective, such as to exercise a particular program path or to verify compliance with a specific requirement of the program.
