Test Monitoring and Control;
Test Monitoring involves the on-going comparison of actual progress against the test plan using any test monitoring metrics defined in the test plan. Test control involves taking actions necessary to meet the objectives of the test plan which may be updated over time. Test monitoring and control are supported by the evaluation of exit criteria. Which are referred to as the definition of done in some lifecycles see ISTQB At foundation level age test extension syllabus, for example, the evaluation of exit criteria for test execution as part of a given test level may include.
Checking test results and logs against specified coverage criteria Assessing the level of the component or system quality based on test results and logs Determining it more test are needed (e.g. it test originally intended to achieve a certain level of product risk coverage failed to do so requires the additional test to be written and executed.
During test analysis, the test basis is analyzed to identity testable features and define associated test conditions. In other words, test analysis determines what is a test in terms of measurable coverage criteria. Test analysis includes the following major activities. Analysis of the test basis appropriate to the test level being for an example;
Requirement specifications such as business requirement, functional requirements, system requirements, user stories, epics, use cases or similar work products that specify desired functional and non-functional component or system behavior.
Design and implementation information, such as system or software architecture diagrams or documents, design specifications, call flows, modeling diagrams ( e.g UML or entity-relationship diagrams, ) interface specifications, or similar work products that specific component or system structure.
The implementation of the component or system itself, including code, database metadata and queries, and interfaces o risk analysis reports, which may consider functional, nonfunctional, and structural aspects of the component or system.
