  • Effective Review of Test Cases

    1. 1. Effective review of test cases A HBT Series Workshop www.cleansoft.in
    2. 2. Good defects are the result of effective testcases. This workshop takes a scientific approach to assessing the effectiveness and efficiency aspects of test cases. Test effectiveness is a function of quantity & quality of test scenarios/cases. Assessing if the designed scenarios/cases are indeed adequate is seen as a serious challenge.. A deep business domain & technical knowledge is seen as a critical enabler, however these seem to be in short supply.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

    3. 3. Can a scientific approach lessen the dependency on domain knowledge?This workshop outlines a scientific approach to assess the quality oftest scenarios/cases by applying a goal centered view to testing -“What types of defects should I uncover”?Having identified scientifically the potential defect types to beuncovered, we can assess if these can be indeed uncovered by thedesigned test cases.Fault coverage, countability, level-ization, test type segregation, +/-distribution analysis, complexity analysis, automation fitness,aresome of the means for reviewing the effectiveness & efficient.This is in addition to requirements coverage. Answer: Yes. A scientific approach de-skills. Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy. All rights reserved. “Effective review of test cases” Powered by HBT
    4. 4. “Effective review of test cases” is Powered by HBTThe structure in addition to the information content of test Levelscenarios/cases play a vital part in measure completenessand optimizing the execution of test cases. ItemHypothesis Based Testing (HBT), a personal scientific test Typemethodology powered by STEMTM has a well-formedarchitecture for test scenarios/cases and this is used as the Prioritybasis for scientific assessments. FocusThe HBT Test Case Architecture slices the scenarios/cases inmultiple ways and allows one to see the gaps in the designed Stagescenarios/cases. FrequencyOrganized by Quality levels sub-ordered by items (features/modules..), Order segregated by type, ranked by importance/priority, sub-divided into conformance(+) and robustness(-), Mode classified by early (smoke)/late-stage evaluation, tagged by evaluation frequency, linked by optimal execution order, classified by execution mode (manual/automated) STEM (STAG Test Engineering Method) is the trademark of STAG Software Pvt.

    5. 5. Topics Covered in this workshop‣Understanding the goal of TS/TC i.e. what types of defects should we uncover?‣Assessing basic completeness using RTM(Requirement traceability matrix)‣Understanding the caveat of RTM i.e. it is necessary but not sufficient‣Understanding fault traceability matrix‣Understanding the HBT Test Case Architecture‣Level and type analysis‣Adequacy analysis‣Test focus analysis‣Automation-ability analysis‣Test documentation completeness‣Limitations of black box techniques‣What information related to internal aspects of the software do I need to know? i.e. how to use white box techniques effectively‣Measurements - Test breadth, Test depth and Test porosity Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

    6. 6. Takeaways from the workshop View the test cases from a defect-finding point of view. “Produce better bait” to catch the fish! I.e detect defects. Able to review rapidly and effectively by applying a scientific method. Analyze if the information content is execution-optimized and automation-friendly.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.
