5 Matching questions

  1. defect based test design technique
  2. design-based testing
  3. certification
  4. coverage analysis
  5. state table
  1. a Measurement of achieved coverage to a specified coverage item during test execution referring to predetermined criteria to determine whether additional testing is required and if so, which test cases are needed.
  2. b A procedure to derive and/or select test cases targeted at one or more defect categories, with tests being developed from what is known about the specific defect category. See also defect taxonomy. A system of (hierarchical) categories designed to be a useful aid for reproducibly classifying defects.
  3. c A grid showing the resulting transitions for each state combined with each possible event, showing both valid and invalid transitions.
  4. d An approach to testing in which test cases are designed based on the architecture and/or detailed design of a component or system (e.g. tests of interfaces between components or systems).
  5. e The process of confirming that a component, system or person complies with its specified requirements, e.g. by passing an exam.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A black box test design technique in which test cases are designed to execute business procedures and processes. [TMap] See also procedure testing. Testing aimed at ensuring that the component or system can operate in conjunction with new or existing users' business procedures or operational procedures.
  2. Comparison of actual and expected results, performed while the software is being executed, for example by a test execution tool.
  3. A test design technique in which a model of the statistical distribution of the input is used to construct representative test cases. See also operational profile testing. Statistical testing using a model of system operations (short duration tasks) and their probability of typical use. [Musa]
  4. A set of one or more test cases. [IEEE 829]
  5. See white-box testing. Testing based on an analysis of the internal structure of the component or system.

5 True/False questions

  1. benchmark testAny event occurring that requires investigation. [After IEEE 1008]


  2. multiple condition coverageThe percentage of combinations of all single condition outcomes within one statement that have been exercised by a test suite. 100% multiple condition coverage implies 100% condition determination coverage.


  3. test phaseA distinct set of test activities collected into a manageable phase of a project, e.g. the execution activities of a test level. [After Gerrard]


  4. non-functional requirementThe capability of the software product to provide functions which meet stated and implied needs when the software is used under specified conditions. [ISO 9126]


  5. blocked test caseA test case that cannot be executed because the preconditions for its execution are not fulfilled.
