Systematic documentation is essential to make the testing process more accurate. It allows the testing team to keep a record of the test case status and make the process of test management more efficient and organized. Well documented test cases also make it easy for the clients to understand the project better. Reports form a substantial part of the vital quality assurance documentation as defined by IEEE standards that organizations need to maintain in order to make a project a success.
The Need for Test Case Analysis
Execution of test cases is only half the job done because it is only after analyzing the test cases can your QA team figure out if the test cases are being accurately executed and whether the reach of the test coverage is as expected. In addition to that, it also allows your team to understand where the test case execution has failed and the possible reasons for the same.
Modern test automation tools make test analysis easy through automatically generated graphical test reports. Given below are some of the most common takeaways from test case analysis reports.
•Number of test suites planned and executed.
•Number of test cases that were successful.
•Number of failed test cases.
•The exact point where the failure occurred and the severity of failure.
•Number of total open bugs, reopened bugs and new bugs
•Incidents of deviation from the test plan
Automated Report Generation with QARA Test
With QARA Test, you can easily analyze test cases to detect faults and bugs in the software. Use the Automated Reports feature to generate graphical test case reports to identify at which step the test has failed and the possible root causes, in addition to the percentage of automation, etc.
Once you have executed the test case, you will see the screen below. It is an automatically generated report that opens in the system’s default Web Browser.
You can find the following information on the screen: Folder name, Execution time, Start and End time, Execution engine, Browser, Environment and Status.
QARA Test allows you to retrieve test case reports on the basis of one of the following two parameters:
a] Based on Modules
When you are retrieving reports on the basis of modules of the test case, you shall have a report similar to the one shown below:
b] Based on Applications
When you are retrieving reports on the basis of applications, you shall have a report similar to the one shown below:
You can also easily share the reports by capturing a screenshot of the test case execution or even email the report to other users. A unique report page URL and login details allow you to limit the access other users have to view in-depth reports.
So, you see that automated test reports can make it easy for you to analyze and study various parameters related to test cases. Have you tried it yet? Let us know your experience and share your feedback.
