Test Execution

What is Test Execution?

Test execution is the process of executing the code and comparing the expected and actual results. Following factors are to be considered for a test execution process:

  • Based on a risk, select a subset of test suite to be executed for this cycle.

  • Assign the test cases in each test suite to testers for execution.

  • Execute tests, report bugs, and capture test status continuously.

  • Resolve blocking issues as they arise.

  • Report status, adjust assignments, and reconsider plans and priorities daily.

  • Report test cycle findings and status.
