2010 – 2011 LogiGear Global Testing Survey Results – Overview

By Michael Hackett

I am Senior Vice President at LogiGear. My main work is consulting, training, and organizational optimization. I’ve always been interested in collecting data on software testing – it keeps us rooted in reality and not some wonkish fantasy about someone’s purported best practice! Just as importantly, many software development teams can easily become myopic as to what they do as being normal or “what everyone does.” I also wanted to do a survey to keep my view on testing practices current. I am always looking to incorporate data I glean about new ideas and methods in my training and consulting programs when I work on for clients at LogiGear.

2010 – 2011 LogiGear Global Testing Survey Results – Test Process & SDLC

Michael Hackett, Senior Vice President, LogiGear Corporation

Process

The objective of this survey and analysis is to gather information on the actual state-of-the-practice in software testing today. The questions originate from software development team assessments I executed over the years. A process assessment is an observation and questioning of how and what you and your team does.

2010 – 2011 LogiGear Global Testing Survey Results – Test Methods

Michael Hackett, Senior Vice President, LogiGear Corporation

METHODS

M1. The test cases for your effort are based primarily on:

Response percent Response count
Requirements documents 61.3% 46
Discussions with users on expected use 2.7% 2
Discussions with product, business analysts, and marketing representatives 9.3% 7
Technical documents 4% 3
Discussions with developers 8% 6
My experience and subject or technical expertise 12% 9
No pre-writing of test cases, I test against how the application is built once I see it 2.7% 2
Guess work 0% 0

Result analysis: This confirms conventional wisdom. Over 60% of the respondents list requirements documents as the basis of their test cases. This brings up two important discussion points: 1) test cases can only be as good as or as thorough as the requirements and 2) past survey results exhibit that most testers are hired because of their subject matter expertise. This subject matter expertise is the primary basis for test case development for a far-distant 12%.
