I did not want your post to go totally unanswered here but I am not sure exactly what would help you out. I assume by "final QA Report" you mean a report that QA delivers to the organization regarding the state of what was just tested. Is that true?
In that case you are right that it should include various metrics. But which metrics you include depends on what people are looking for in your organization. It also depends on what you know at this stage in your test cycle. For example, you might have a metric indicating the number of defect founds in this latest build. You might have a metric indicating the ratio of defects found in this current build to a previous build.
You might have a metric indicating how long it took for certain fixes to occur or the average time between builds compared to the average time for a regression testing cycle. You might have a metric that indicates the various types of defects that were found: functional, usable, security, etc.
It all depends on the context of what you are doing. If you could provide more detail on that it would be helpful.
Thanks for your reply, Jeff.
What I meant by a "final" report is the report QA delivers at the end of a major cycle. This report will be used as one of the criteria for determining whether the release is "good enough" to be given to customers.
I realize metrics included in such report would vary from organization to organization, but what I was hoping for is for other people to share what kind of metrics they use.
I was also hoping to see a format people use for such reports -- that's why I used the word template in the topic.
