Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Testing has always been an important task in the scope of software quality. Though it has never been as much appreciated within the management of the organisations as the software development has. However testing is becoming more attractive within organisations because it becomes more evident how much money working systems saves in contrast to defect ones. A tester often use testing tools to simplify the work progress. There are a lot of tools nowadays but not many evaluating models which helps the tester to know which one to recommend. This essay tries to approach the problematic area of evaluating testing tools. It will process the testing area with an orientation to high level test and automation. This area is choosen because there is, so far, scarce research and scientific support for test tool evaluation and this problem needs to be attended to.
A first step of an evaluating model is presented in this essay, which can evaluate todays testing tools. The model contains criterias from earlier research and praxis with a test tool, Microsoft Test Manager 2012. To get a deeper understanding about which assesment criteria the model should contain, software quality standard ISO/IEC 9126-1, the test process, and Microsoft Test Manager 2012 were used to define those criterias. We also found that some criterias were missing and needed to be added, so our model would fit todays evaluating of test tools.
