    Acceptance Criteria

    If someone asks me to generate an acceptance criteria document based on the test plan document, how can I do that. Is there any template available for generating the Acceptance Criteria Document and what all should be included in it.

    Re: Acceptance Criteria

    Maybe I have misunderstood the question, but you don't create Acceptance Criteria from a test plan. You create Acceptance Criteria from the requirements.

    I don't know of a template, I have always created my own depending on the context of the customer, the project, the supplier. The type of things you need in it are:

    Description
    What has to happen to demonstrate acceptance
    What Acceptance means
    Who signs it off
    Date (or phase) when acceptance criteria need to have been met
    Priority

    Those are the core. You may need more

    Re: Acceptance Criteria

    Rather like Peter I would normally relate acceptance criteria to the requirements, or the Quality Plan for the project.
    The only time I am looking for, acceptance criteria in or generated from, a test plan is when it is a test level (phase) test plan and will feed into another test. These are then, often but not always, refered to as the entrance and exit criteria for the test level, and the exit criteria of one phase should be reflected in the enterance criteria of the next test level.

    Re: Acceptance Criteria

    I consider acceptance criteria on different levels. It starts on the requirements level. However, if a requirement is well written the acceptance criteria is directly obvious. If not, you may want to put it in an attribute. This may as well be interesting if you manage different product releases.

    At the other end, as Neill mentionned, you have acceptance criteria (like entrance/exit) for the different phases.

    BTW: In the medical field, you often make a distinction between accepted and passed on a test case level. Meaning, there may be a test step which was not OK, but you consider the test case as accepted. Of course, for this you may formalize an acceptance criteria.
