IEEE 1028 also defines “management review” as a type of review .
What is the main purpose of a management review? 1 credit A . Align technical concepts during the design phase B . Establish a common understanding of requirements C . Provide independent evaluation of compliance to processes, regulations, standards etc. D . To monitor progress, assess the status of a project, and make decisions about future actions
A test log is one of the documents that need to be produced in this domain in order to provide evidence of testing. However, the level of detail of test logs can vary .
Which of the following is NOT an influencing factor for the level of detail of the test logs being produced? 1 credit A . Level of test execution automation B . Test level C . Regulatory requirements D . Experience level of testers
Topic 13, Scenario 8, V1 "Test Process Improvement"
You have been asked to investigate various test process Improvement models to be introduced for the next project. You have been asked to provide a comparison between the TMMi and TPI models and provide a recommendation.
Which THREE of the below mentioned characteristics relate to TMMi? 1 credit A . 5 maturity levels B . Focussed on higher level testing C . 20 key areas D . Highly related to CMMI E . Continuous model F . Staged model G . Focussed on component and integration testing H . Is build around 12 critical testing processes
A software development company that sells an established capture-replay tool has decided to complement it with a test management tool. The capture-replay tool was developed over a number of years and is used by a large number of clients.
The test management tool will be developed by the same team that developed the capture-replay tool, using the same technology. The company test strategy mandates that structural testing is focussed at the component test level and dynamic non-functional testing is focussed at the acceptance test level.
In response to growing customer demand, it is proposed to develop the test management tool in an incremental manner. Each increment will be developed using the V life cycle model. The target platform is a PC in a local area network. The PC uses a proprietary relational database and communicates with a single PC which acts as a server.
The test management tool must interface with the company s capture replay tool. Over the first 12 months of the development period the following functionality will be developed for the tool (in two increments): basic requirements management, support for test case creation; support for test procedures, test scripts and test suites. The functionality to be included in later increments will be driven by customer demand: however they expect to provide an incident management system, a web front-end, and interfaces to other proprietary tools and database management systems.
Which of the following would you expect to see in the master test plan? 1 credit A . A description of how the test cases are cross-referenced to requirements in the test management tool. B . A detailed identification of the resources that will carry out structural testing in the first iteration. C . The test approach that will be applied at system integration testing. D . A list of the names of the testers who will carry out the performance testing for the final iteration.
You are working as a test manager in the medical domain leading a team of system testers. You are currently working on a major release of the product which gives customers many new features and resolves a number of problem reports from previous releases.
Explain how the above mentioned report may differ from a report that you produce for the project manager, who is a test specialist Select TWO items from the following options that can be used to report to the project manager and would not be included in a report to senior management. 1 credit A . Show details on effort spent B . List of all outstanding defects with their priority and severity C . Give product risk status D . Show trend analysis E . State recommendations for release
You have raised the issue that improving the testing process is also dependent on the status of the software development process.
During test process improvement it is recommended to use standards where possible. Standards originate from various sources and they cover different subjects in relation to testing Pick TWO sources of software standards, useful to software testing from the ones mentioned below. 1 credit A . ISO 9126-1 ‘Software engineering- Product quality Part 1:
Quality model’ is an international standard, that provides a basis on which to define quality assurance solutions. B . ISA 4126-1 ‘Software engineering- Product quality Part 1:
Quality model’ is an international standard, that provides a basis on which to define quality assurance solutions. C . BS-7925-2 ‘Software testing. Software component testing is a national standard used internationally. It covers a number of testing techniques that may be useful both on component testing level and on system testing level. D . SY-395-01 ‘Standard for East Coast Hospital software’ is a regional standard adapted from a national one. Besides hospital software, this standard ought to be used also by other types of software system in the region. E . IEEE 829 ‘standard for software test documentation’ is an international standard to be following mandatory by all testing origination regardless of lifecycle models.
