Let’s say you need to pick a testing tool for your project. How are you going to choose that testing tool?

Before you choose the testing tool for your project, you should think about the following:

Find out what features an automation testing tool needs to have based on what your project needs.

  • Check to see if your project can be done with any of the commercial or noncommercial tools out there.
  • Figure out how much the tool will cost and how much it will help you.
  • After talking with team members, the final decision on whether or not to buy the tool will be made.

What are some ways to deal with or lessen risks in a test project?

Most test projects have four main ways to deal with or reduce risks:

Avoiding: With this method, we don’t have to deal with the project’s risks.
Acceptance and Sharing: In this method, we accept the project’s risks and try to plan a budget that takes them into account. We also work with other people to share responsibility.
Reduction: In this method, we make a plan for managing risk to lessen its effects.
Risk Transfer: With this method, the risk is moved to another resource or party.

What are the biggest differences between the Smoke test and the Sanity test?

Smoke Testing: This is a way to make sure that the most important parts of an application are working correctly. As part of basic testing, this testing is done on the first builds.

Sanity testing is done to make sure that new features work with the code that has already been written. This testing is part of regression testing and is done on stable builds.

What kinds of risks are there in a testing project?

In a testing project, there are these kinds of risks:

Risks related to the project’s definition include risks related to the project’s goal, scope, and requirements.
Human Resources Risks: This type of risk includes risks about the people on the team, their skills, and the way the team is run.
Strategy Risks: Communication, Budget, and Management risks are all part of this type of risk.
Risks to the project schedule include not being able to finish projects on the date and time planned.

What is the difference between Retesting and Regression Testing?

Retesting: Retesting is testing that is well-planned and done to check an application feature. The test cases that were written to test a certain feature can’t be run automatically. More important than regression testing is retesting.

Regression Testing: Regression testing is a type of general testing that checks a large part of an application. The written test cases for a certain feature can be run automatically. Regression testing is done after retesting because it is less important.

What are exit criteria, and how are they determined?

At some point, we have to stop testing. We can’t keep testing forever. We need some Exit criteria so that we know when to stop testing. Exit criteria are the things that have to be true before a task or process can be done successfully. The quality standards and tasks that were set before the project began are used to decide the exit criteria.

What is three-point estimation?

Best-case estimate: With experienced team members, the job can be done in 12 days, according to the best estimate.
Most likely estimate: It takes 18 days to finish the job if there are enough resources and about the right number of people on the team.
Worst-case estimate: It will take 24 days to finish the job, even though the team hasn’t done much work before.

What do you know about PDCA Cycle?

Plan: In this stage, the problem is identified, and a target is set to solve those problems.

Do: In this stage, the improvements are implemented.

Check: In this stage, the result of improvements is checked.

Act: In this stage, we learn from the result obtained.

Explain Bug Triage.

Bug triage is the process of classifying bugs based on how often they occur, how bad they are, and how dangerous they are. The QA team checks the severity of the bug, makes the necessary adjustments, finishes the bug fix, and assigns resources.

In Bug Triage, there are three steps:

Review of Bugs

What are the types of test plan?

  • Master Test Plan
  • Testing type specific Test Plan
  • Testing level specific Test Plan

What are bug leakage and bug release?

Bug Leakage: When a bug is found by a user of the product rather than by the testing team.

Bug Release: A bug release is when software is released with a list of known bugs. The bugs that are released in the product aren’t very important and don’t hurt the application in any way.

What are the responsibilities of a Test lead?

  • Management of product from scratch to the completion of the product.
  • Test the planning.
  • Mentoring and coaching the other team members.
  • Submit the weekly test reports.
  • Obtain customer acceptance of the deliverables.
