Software Testing Interview Questions

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • What is the MAIN benefit of designing tests early in the life cycle?

It helps prevent defects from being introduced into the code.

  • What is risk-based testing?

Risk-based Testing is the term used for an approach to creating a Test Strategy that is based on prioritizing tests by risk. The basis of the approach is a detailed risk analysis and prioritizing of risks by risk level. Tests to address each risk are then specified, starting with the highest risk first.

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • What is the KEY difference between preventative and reactive approaches to testing?

Preventative tests are designed early; reactive tests are designed after the software has been produced.

  • What is the purpose of exit criteria?

The purpose of exit criteria is to define when a test level is completed.

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • What determines the level of risk?

The likelihood of an adverse event and the impact of the event determine the level of risk.

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • When is used Decision table testing?

Decision table testing is used for testing systems for which the specification takes the form of rules or cause-effect combinations. In a decision table the inputs are listed in a column, with the outputs in the same column but below the inputs. The remainder of the table explores combinations of inputs to define the outputs produced.

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • What is the MAIN objective when reviewing a software deliverable?

To identify defects in any software work product.

  • Which of the following defines the expected results of a test? Test case
    Specification or test design specification.

Test case specification defines the expected results of a test.

Software Testing Interview Questions

  • What is the benefit of test independence?

It avoids author bias in defining effective tests.

  • As part of which test process do you determine the exit criteria?

The exit criteria is determined on the bases of ‘Test Planning’
