Prioritize problems based on severity level definitions; 2.

Identify problems, isolate them and document as defect; 3.

Regression test for resolved defects The selected Testing/QA Specialist will be expected to ensure that the proposed Test Strategy / Test plans includes the following:
– Functional testing: o Component level testing; o Low level (test cases, GUI, check lists); o Functional (test existing functions, sub-functions and their objects); o Non-functional (boundary conditions
– “login” and “password” windows, security issues);
– Data and Database Integrity Testing o The databases and the database processes should be tested as separate systems within the test plan.

These systems should be tested without the application (as the interface to the data).

– System Testing o System testing should focus on any target requirements that can be traced directly to use cases (or business functions), and business rules.

The goals of these tests are to verify proper data acceptance, processing, and retrieval, and the appropriate implementation of the business rules.

– Load Testing o Load testing measures subject the system-under-test to varying workloads to evaluate the systems ability to continue to function properly under these different workloads.

The goal of load testing is to determine and ensure that the system functions properly beyond the expected maximum workload.

Additionally, load testing evaluates the performance characteristics (response times, transaction rates, and other time sensitive issues).

– Security and Access Control Testing o Security and access control testing focus on two key areas of security:  Application security, including access to the data or business functions, and system security, including logging into / remote access to the application  Application security which ensures that, based upon the desired security, users are restricted to specific functions or are limited in the data that is available to them.

For example, everyone may be permitted to enter data and create new accounts, but only managers can delete them.

If there is security at the data level, testing ensures that ‘user “type” one’ can see all customer information, including financial data, however, ‘user “type” two’ only sees the demographic data for the same ministry.

System security ensures that only those users granted access to the system are capable of accessing the application and only through the appropriate gateways.

– Configuration Testing o Configuration testing verifies operation of the software on different software and hardware configurations.

In most production environments, the particular hardware pecifications for the Client workstations, network connections and database servers vary.

Client workstations may have different software loaded (e.g.

applications, rivers, etc.) and at any one time many different combinations may be active and using different resources.
