Test and Evaluation
Do any one know how to prepare Test& Evaluation Documents from the Functional Specifications.
Re: Test and Evaluation
Functional specifications are baselines for two documents
1. Test requirements (high level test requirements come from the requirements document). But if no requirements document exist FS should do.
2. Test cases
The evaluation is specified in the test plan based on testing methodology used by your company, STLC or you have to make them up from any existing standards.
The evaluation criteria will comprise of the test case priority, defect severity and priority.
Test entry and exit criteria also need to be specified.
Then the test reports showing the test progress, module wise number of critical and major bugs will have to designed which will help in the measurement and evaluation of test effort.
A report on estimated and actual test effort (in terms of tester hours/days)will also help.
Look for discussion threads on this website. For more details see and download some of the sample testing documents from google and/or yahoo.
