TEST SUMMARY REPORT
Test processes determine whether the development products of a given activity conform to the requirements of that activity and whether the system and/or software satisfies its intended use and user needs. The scope of testing encompasses software-based systems, computer software, hardware, and their interfaces.
829-2008 – IEEE Standard for Software and System Test Documentation, is an IEEE standard that specifies the form of a set of documents for use in eight defined stages of software testing, each stage potentially producing its own separate type of document.
Software quality assurance test documentation includes:
Test Summary Report
A detail of all the important information to come out of the testing procedure, including an assessment of how well the testing was performed, an assessment of the quality of the system, any incidents that occurred, and a record of what testing was done and how long it took to be used in future test planning.
This final document is used to determine if the software being tested is viable enough to proceed to the next stage of development.
Once approved, this report represents the approval and acceptance of the executed tests.
