SUBJECT CODE – ITECH7409
SUBJECT NAME – SOFTWARE TESTING
UNIVERSITY NAME – FEDERATION UNIVERSITY, AUSTRALIA
Software testing is a course which equips students with knowledge and understanding required to plan, document and undertake testing from different stages of an implemented software system.
What Does Software Testing Mean?
Software testing is a technique of examining software to see if it is suitable for the task for which it is being built and is free of flaws.
Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
Waterfall Model advantages and disadvantages
⦁ Works from definitions of requirements (broad descriptions) to more detailed activities.
⦁ Easily imported into project management tools.
⦁ Sequential nature precludes revisiting an earlier activity which is considered finished. Each step finishes with a milestone so it is probable that generated in a particular stage a defect could go undetected until after the milestone has been reached.
⦁ Testing is done quite late in project development.
⦁ Cannot accommodate customer changes to requirements.

Software Reliability Specification
Software reliability focuses on the probability that a software component will produce an incorrect output.
Research on Software Testing and Standards
The purpose of this research is to:
⦁ Improve comprehension and research skills.
⦁ Develop a better understanding of professional industry standards for software testing.
⦁ Test and evaluate different software systems.
⦁ Evaluate software requirements as inputs toward testing of the final solution.
⦁ Analyse and critically evaluate appropriate tools and techniques to support the testing process.
⦁ Develop a good understanding of selecting and applying measures and models used for testing that are compliant with the appropriate professional industry standards such as the ACS and IEEE
⦁ Analyse and evaluate software requirements.
Students need to prepare a research paper related to the software testing referring to at least one standard.
Research, comprehend and analyse each document (both the paper and the chosen standard) to find relevant details to answer a set of questions, and prepare a written summary report of findings.
Questions for the standard that has been used in the research paper:
• What is the standard name? Title and number
• Who holds the copyright for the standard?
• Amongst the acknowledged contributors to the document, which
universities were involved (if any)?
• What is the scope or intent of the standard?
• What are key terms and understandings needed for the standard to be
understood and applied?
• In your own words, what does application of the standard result in? Or in other words, what does the standard do?
• Finally, what specific relevance to software testing is the standard?
Research Report should not exceed more than 1500 words. The report should be prepared in the following format:
⦁ An introduction to standards and a brief description of the research paper and chosen standard.
⦁ Responses to questions for the standard.
⦁ Listing and a discussion of commonalities and differences between the two documents.
⦁ A conclusion summarising the report findings.
Will you be able to complete my assignment?
Yes, we have professional experts on board who can complete your assignment smoothly.
How long will it take you to complete the assignment?
You must state the deadline at the time of making an order.
Will you be able to provide the assignment to me before the deadline?
Yes, we can, but you must specify the duration when making the order.
Is it true that some answers may require a Student ID, and that my personal information will be safe with you?
Yes, we will keep all of your personal information secure and confidential.
If my classmate also gets the assignment done with you, how will you make sure that the solution is completely different?
Our writers pay attention to detail and make every assignment from scratch ensuring originality of the work.
Will you give the Turnitin Report?
Yes, we always give Turnitin Report with the assignments and that too free of cost.
What if I need to make modifications to the work after receiving feedback from the professor?
Yes, we can make changes to the assignment based on the feedback until it meets the original standards.
What is the payment process?
We always request to make payment in advance & the writer starts working once the payment is confirmed.
