Q #AnswerDetailed explanation
1b. Checking that we are building the system rightVerification confirms that work products properly reflect the requirements specified for them. Did we build the system right?
Validation check whether a function needed and expected by customers is present in a software product. Did we build the right system, appropriate, fit-for-use?
2b. Will help ensure unchanged areas of the software have not been affectedRe-tested to confirm that the original defect has been successfully removed. This is called confirmation
Regression testing is the repeated testing of an already tested program, after modification, to discover and defects introduced or uncovered as result of the change(s).
3c. It may be difficult to determine if the test has passed or failedA test case consists of a set of input values, execution preconditions, expected results and execution postconditions, defined to cover a certain test objective(s) or test conditions
4d. All of them are valid reasons for failureFailure: a behavioral deviation from user requirement or product specification
Errors 🡪 Faults 🡪 Failures 🡪Use the term
5b. You do the best testing in the time available
6a. Error guessingExperience based Techniques
7d. Component testing does not involve regression testingRegression testing is the repeated testing of an already tested program, these defects may be either in the software being tested, or in another related or unrelated software component.
8c. PlanningTest plannin activities: Defining the overall approach of testing, including the definition of the test levels and entry and exit criteria.
Typically exit criteria may cover the following: Cost
9b. Able to write software
10d. All of the above
11b. Bottom-up integrationTop-down: from menu to function (use stub)
Bottom-up: from detail function to menu (use driver)
12a. Project plan
13c. Project status report
14b. Deliverable base-lining
15b. Cultural difference
16b. 40-50
17b. Is unlikely to cause a failure
18b. The answer depends on the risks for your industry, contract and special requirementsDeciding how much testing is enough should take account of the level of risk, including technical, safety, and busuness risks, and project constraints such as time and budget.
19d. Robustness
20a. White box
21d. All of the above
22b. DriverStubs and drivers are usually used in UT to replace missing components, software
Stub: called by software component
Driver: call software component
A driver: is a software module used to invoke a module under test and, often, provide test inputs, control and monitor execution, and report test results
A stub: is a computer program statement substituting for the body of a software module that is or will be defined elsewhere.
23c. A black box testing technique appropriate to all levels of testing
24a. A small team to establish the best way to use the tool
25d. How much of the code has been covered
