Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is an example of testing as part of the requirements specification phase of a project?

    • A.

      A requirements review meeting

    • B.

      A business analyst eliciting requirements

    • C.

      A database administrator designing a table

    • D.

      A test results report showing requirements coverage

    Correct Answer
    A. A requirements review meeting
    Explanation
    A requirements review meeting is an example of testing as part of the requirements specification phase of a project because it involves reviewing and testing the requirements to ensure they are complete, accurate, and meet the needs of the stakeholders. In this meeting, the project team and stakeholders gather to analyze and validate the requirements, identify any gaps or inconsistencies, and make necessary revisions. This helps to ensure that the requirements are well-defined and can serve as a basis for the subsequent phases of the project.

    Assume you are a test manager working on a project to create a programmable thermostat for home use to control central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. This project is following a sequential lifecycle model, specifically the V-model. Currently, the system architects have released a first draft design specification based on the approved requirements specification released previously. Identify all of the following that are appropriate test tasks to execute at this time:

    • A.

      Design tests from the requirements specification

    • B.

      Analyze design-related risks

    • C.

      Execute unit test cases

    • D.

      Write the test summary report

    • E.

      Design tests from the design specification

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Design tests from the requirements specification
    B. Analyze design-related risks
    E. Design tests from the design specification
    Explanation
    At this stage in the project, it is appropriate to design tests from both the requirements specification and the design specification. Designing tests from the requirements specification ensures that the tests cover all the intended functionalities and meet the specified requirements. Analyzing design-related risks helps identify potential issues or flaws in the design that may impact the system's performance or functionality. Finally, designing tests from the design specification ensures that the tests align with the specific design choices made by the system architects.

    Which of the following is generally applicable to demonstrating compliance to regulations for safety critical systems?

    • A.

      Test traceability

    • B.

      ISO 61508

    • C.

      Usability testing

    • D.

      Employee evaluations

    Correct Answer
    A. Test traceability
    Explanation
    Test traceability is generally applicable to demonstrating compliance to regulations for safety critical systems. Test traceability ensures that all requirements are tested and that the results of the tests can be traced back to the original requirements. This helps in ensuring that the system meets the necessary safety regulations and standards. ISO 61508 is a standard for functional safety that may also be applicable in safety critical systems, but it is not specifically related to demonstrating compliance. Usability testing and employee evaluations are not directly related to demonstrating compliance to safety regulations.

    You are the manager of a bank's quality assessment group, in charge of independent testing for banking applications. You are working on a project to implement an integrated system that will use three off-the-shelf systems to manage a bank's accounts-receivable system. Identify all of the following that are test levels that you would expect to directly manage:

    • A.

      Component testing for each system

    • B.

      Component integration testing for each system

    • C.

      System testing for each system

    • D.

      Contract acceptance testing for each system

    • E.

      System integration testing

    Correct Answer(s)
    D. Contract acceptance testing for each system
    E. System integration testing
    Explanation
    As the manager of the bank's quality assessment group, you would be responsible for directly managing the contract acceptance testing for each system and the system integration testing. Contract acceptance testing ensures that each off-the-shelf system meets the specified requirements and performs as expected. System integration testing verifies the interaction and compatibility between the three off-the-shelf systems when integrated into the bank's accounts-receivable system. This level of testing is crucial to ensure the successful implementation and functionality of the integrated system.

    Which of the following is an accurate statement that captures a difference between a trend chart showing the total number of bugs discovered and resolved during test execution and a trend chart showing the total number of test cases passed and failed during test execution?

    • A.

      The bug trend chart will reveal test progress problems while the test case trend chart will not.

    • B.

      The bug trend chart will show test coverage while the test case trend chart will not.

    • C.

      The test case trend chart will reveal test progress problems while the bug trend chart will not.

    • D.

      The test case trend chart will show test coverage while the bug trend chart will not.

    Correct Answer
    C. The test case trend chart will reveal test progress problems while the bug trend chart will not.
    Explanation
    The test case trend chart shows the total number of test cases passed and failed during test execution, which provides insights into the progress of the testing process. If there are a significant number of test cases failing, it indicates that there may be issues with the functionality being tested or with the overall quality of the software. On the other hand, the bug trend chart shows the total number of bugs discovered and resolved during test execution, which focuses more on the specific issues found rather than the overall progress of the testing. Therefore, the test case trend chart is more likely to reveal test progress problems compared to the bug trend chart.

    Considering the typical objectives of testing that are identified in the Foundation syllabus, which of the following metrics can we use to measure the effectiveness of the test process in achieving one of those objectives?

    • A.

      Average days from defect discovery to resolution

    • B.

      Lines of code written per developer per day

    • C.

      Percentage of test effort spent on regression testing

    • D.

      Percentage of requirements coverage

    Correct Answer
    D. Percentage of requirements coverage
    Explanation
    The percentage of requirements coverage is a metric that can be used to measure the effectiveness of the test process in achieving one of the typical objectives of testing. This metric indicates the extent to which the requirements have been tested and covered by the test cases. A higher percentage of requirements coverage suggests that a larger portion of the system has been tested, increasing the likelihood of identifying defects and ensuring that the system meets the specified requirements. Therefore, this metric is a good indicator of the effectiveness of the test process in achieving the objective of ensuring that the system functions as intended.
