# Thread: Test data classification

1. ## Test data classification

How to find the complexity the test data like simple,average or complex?

2. ## Re: Test data classification

You are trying to measure the "complexity" of your test data?

What does "complex" mean to you, in this context?

3. ## Re: Test data classification

Can you please elaborate your query?

4. ## Re: Test data classification

Basically my client wants me to put the test data conditioning in form of template, so i have put in test case template, nature of test data as Simple, Medium, Complex.

5. ## Re: Test data classification

I guess I wouldn't know how to choose among those designations.

I suppose you could say:

"Simple" means "It will take me a long time to create it"
And "Complex" means "It won't take long to create it"

6. ## Re: Test data classification

Test Data would be simple or complex

for example simple data would be cheking the data of names
numbers or date's

Complex data would be for example of credit card numbers or geographical data to test

hope this is understood

Perhaps others understand, but I don't.

Why would why test data for credit cards be more complex than names or dates?

8. ## Re: Test data classification

If I understand your question correctly then you are talking about the McCabe's Cyclomatic Complexity.

The cyclomatic complexity of a software module is calculated from a connected graph of the module or flow chart:

Cyclomatic complexity (CC) = E - N + p

where E = the number of edges of the graph

N = the number of nodes of the graph

p = the number of connected components

If CC is in the following range:

1-10, then the program is simple without much risk.
11-20, more complex with moderate risk.
21-50, Complex &amp; high risk program.
greater than 50, untestable program (very high risk).

Thanks,

Are you saying that McCabe's Cyclomatic Complexity can be used to calculate the complexity of data?

(I don't see how)

10. ## Re: Test data classification

Maybe I am opening up a can of worms here but I would label it accordingly. If it takes 10 minutes to create the data then its simple. If it takes a day then its average. If it takes a week then its complex (Example: Some financial data inserts can be really complex and can take several days to insert the data either through the program (UAT) or through scripts.)
