Which of the following is NOT an advantage of test automation?

  1. The ability to perform tests which would be difficult or impossible to execute manually
  2. The ability to run more tests in less time and therefore to make it possible to run them more often
  3. The ability to find more defects with the same tests, compared to executing the same test manually
  4. The ability to enable a better use of skilled testers by freeing them from repetitive and boring tasks

Answer(s): C



Consider the following example of TAS metrics.
Time to execute automated tests
Speed and efficiency of TAS components
Which of the following statements is TRUE?

  1. A and B are both internal TAS metrics
  2. A is an internal TAS metric and B is an external TAS metric
  3. A and b are both external TAS metric
  4. A is and external TAS metric and b is an internal TAS metric

Answer(s): D



Which of the following metrics could suggest, under certain condition that an automated regression test suite has NOT been updated for new functionalities added to the SUT?

  1. The ratio of comments to executable statements in the SUT code.
  2. The SUT code coverage provided by the execution of the regression test suite.
  3. The defect density in the automation code of the regression test suite.
  4. The ratio of commands to executable statements in the automation code of the regression test suite

Answer(s): C



Consider a TAS associated to dynamically changing software frequent releases. Your goal is to determine the amount of effort required to maintain the automated tests of the regression test suite for each new release of the SUT.
What is the MOST important metric to collect to achieve your goal?

  1. The code coverage achieved with the automated tests, for each new release of the SUT
  2. The number of automated tests which fail because of a single software defect, for each new release of the SUT
  3. The time it takes to execute all the automated tests, for each new release of the SUT.
  4. The number of automated tests requiring maintenance, for each new release of the SUT.

Answer(s): B



A project consists of distributed teams working in a 24-hour environment, where activities happen at all hours of the day. This project adopts a CI (Continuous Integration) process when developer check-in code and consists of automated activities that include generating a build and deploying it to
a test environment. Automated integration tests are run multiple times a day. The project have asked for a report containing the automation test results for every build, which must be available 24/7 to the project team.
Which of the following would be the BEST way to automatically provides this report?

  1. Store the execution results of the integration tests for the last build to a database (without overwriting the results from the previous builds), use this database to automatically update a dashboard containing the build history and test results accessible to the project team.
  2. Store the execution result of the integration tests for the last build to a database (overwriting the results from the previous build), automatically create a test execution report for this build send It via e-mail to the project team
  3. Store the execution results of the integration tests for the last build to a database (without overwriting the results from the previous builds). Automatically create a test execution report for this build and send it via e-mail to the project team
  4. Store the code coverage results of the integration tests for the last build to a database (without overwriting the results from the previous builds). And automatically create a chart showing the trend in code coverage and send via email to the project team.

Answer(s): A
