LIST OF SOFTWARE TESTING TYPES 

SOFTWARE TESTING

The list of software testing types with 100 types of software testing types are published in two articles –

Software Testing Types:

Acceptance testing:

In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. The software is tested against the customer contracts, government regulations, operational requirements and so on.

Accessibility testing:

In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, colour blindness, and so on. The best practices for accessibility are specified under section508, World wide web consortium(W3C) – web content accessibility guidelines, etc.

Accuracy testing:

In the accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. Accuracy testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations. The precision of data storage, data transfer, calculated results need a degree of precision. For example: software used for market research, spacecrafts, etc.

Ad hoc testing:

The ad hoc testing is informal method of software testing. This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type  of software. The software testers use their experience and skills to perform ad hoc testing. The test documents are not created. Ad hoc testing has no plan and is performed experimentally.

Check your understanding: 

1. Write the examples of the scenarios/ software for each of above different types of testing.

  1. 1. Acceptance testing is done for most of the applications we use to check if they meet the requirements of the client. Ex: internet banking software, gmail application etc.
    2. Accessibility testing is performed to test if the application or software is disabled friendly. Ex: Screen Reader software for the visually impaired which narrates whatever is written on the website
    3. Accuracy testing is done to check for accuracy of results, ,mostly where calculations are involved. Ex: Statistical Analysis Software
    4. Ad hoc testing is the least formal method of testing which does not require planning and documentation. Aim of this testing is to find defects by random checking. Ex: early scientific experimental studies

  2. Acceptance testing : This is also called as User Acceptance testing ( UAT ) eg: online banking, gmail application.

    Accessibility testing : This testing is to determine whether the software or application is accessible for disabled people or not. here disability means deaf, color blind,mentally disabled, old age & other disabled groups. various checks are performed such as font size for visually disabled, color & contrast for color blindness etc.

    3. Accuracy testing is done to check for accuracy of results, ,mostly where calculations are involved. Ex: Statistical Analysis Software

    4. Ad hoc testing is the least formal method of testing which does not require planning and documentation. Aim of this testing is to find defects by random checking. Ex: early scientific experimental studies

  3. Ans: – Acceptance testing: In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. The software is tested against the customer contracts, government regulations, operational requirements and so on. It is always a final step before rolling out the application.
    Accessibility testing: In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, color blindness, and so on. The best practices for accessibility are specified under section 508, World wide web consortium (W3C) – web content accessibility guidelines, etc.

The software testers use their experience and skills to perform ad hoc testing. The test documents are not created. Ad hoc testing has no plan and is performed experimentally.

  4. Component/Unit Testing
    Given a class User with fields like first_name, last_name and a method called fullname, we can check if the described method returns the value we are expecting.

    Integration testing
    We test to see if a user’s full name is displayed when we visit their profile page. In this way we confirm that our views, controller and model methods are working together as intended.

    Functional testing (black-box method)
    Confirming that a user can register through Facebook, and that any created passwords have at least 8 characters.

    Non-functional testing
    Load testing or stress testing. Since we know from functional testing that the application works – we now need to check if, for example, it still works with a huge influx of users.

    Structural testing (white-box method)
    How are the loops in the software working? Different test cases may run the loops once, twice, and many times.

    Re-testing and regression testing
    A pre-deployment or post-deployment test which checks all the most important features, like registration and login/logout functionality.

  5. Acceptance Testing
    During the process of manufacturing a ballpoint pen, the cap, the body, the tail and clip, the ink cartridge and the ballpoint are produced separately and unit tested separately. When two or more units are ready, they are assembled and Integration Testing is performed. When the complete pen is integrated, System Testing is performed. Once System Testing is complete, Acceptance Testing is performed so as to confirm that the ballpoint pen is ready to be made available to the end-users.

    Accessibility testing
    In Accessibility Testing for Disabled audience one very major point to consider is Accessing the Website without the use of the mouse. A person should be able to complete access the website the links, buttons, radio buttons, checkboxes, pop-ups, dropdown, all the controls should be completely accessible and operable through the keyboard.

    Accuracy testing:
    From Air Operations Center – Weapon System (AOC-WS): 99 percent of original content conveyed [assume correctly] to other divisions & process stations. This KPP could be aligned under the third attribute of the NR-KPP, which requires the IT system to effectively exchange information. It is not clear whether the “content” is measured at the data field, or data record, level. This ambiguity should be resolved.

    Ad hoc testing
    Concurrent transactions or actions that do the exact same steps of a given functionality by using 2 different sessions on different machines. For example, if an application requires tester to create a table name that is unique; how will it handle if you were to try to create a table with the same name on two distinct sessions? Validating to eliminate redundancy or duplicate data caused by concurrent transaction.

  6. 1)Accuracy testing:_ the software is tested for its accuracy in the results, for example in currency convertor and auto driven cars
    2)Ad hoc testing:_This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software, for example software that can make call with voice recognition
    3) Acceptance testing: is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. internet banking application
    4)Accessibility testing:_the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities, which may include hearing, and color blindness.

  7. 1. Acceptance testing:- This is to check if software satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements.
    example : account setup on website
    2. Accessibility testing:-the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities.
    example : special print reading for blinds
    3.Accuracy testing:-the software is tested for its accurate results c
    example: Mortgage rate calculator
    4.Ad hoc testing:-This testing is for new software challenges.
    example : recreating unique scenarios to test

  8. Acceptance Testing:
    Software is tested to verify if it satisfies acceptance criteria of the client with respect to the requirements.This is the final testing before software is implemented to check the compliance with client’s requirement rather than finding defects.
    Example: Fund transfer in online banking account.
    Accessibility Testing:
    This kind of testing is used to ensure that the application developed is usable by people with disabilities like ,hearing, blindness etc.
    Example:Speech recognition software and screen reader software for blind people.
    Accuracy Testing:
    This kind of testing is used where precision of the calculations are very important.
    Example:Online stock market
    Ad hoc Testing:
    Testing performed without planning and documentation.These kind of tests are intended to be run only once.Informal testing.
    Example:Early scientific experimental studies.

  9. 1) Acceptance testing:-In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. e.g.-online banking application.
    2)Accessibility testing:-In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, colour blindness.
    3)Accuracy testing:_ the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. e.g- morgage rate converter, weight converter, time converter.
    4)Ad hoc testing:- for experienced users, no documentation is required. For new technology or software. This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software.

  10. Acceptance testing: It is the last level of software testing performed after System Testing and before making the system available for actual use.
    Accessibility testing:blindness and limited vision
    Accuracy testing:market research, spacecrafts
    Ad hoc testing:Buddy testing, Pair testing, Monkey testing – Ad hoc testing can be performed when there is limited time to do elaborative testing. Usually adhoc testing is performed after the formal test execution. And if time permits, ad hoc testing can be done on the system. Ad hoc testing will be effective only if the tester is knowledgeable of the System Under Test.

  11. Acceptance testing: to check if the software satisfies the requirement of the client
    Eg: online banking
    Accessibility testing: tested for usability by the users with disability includes hearing, color blindness
    Eg: speech recognition software
    Accuracy testing: performed on the software mostly include calculations.
    Eg: market research, spacecrafts etc
    Ad hoc testing: testers use their experience and skills to perform the ad hoc testing. there is no plan and is performed experimentally.

  12. 1. Acceptance Testing: UAT- When software is ready, it is submitted to the client for checking whether it meets thier requirements. This is Acceptance Testing
    2. Accessibility Testing: When a software is tested for usability for users with disabilities it is known as acceptability testing. Eg: ATM machine being tested by an user who is blind to check if the software is accessible to blind people.
    3. Accuracy Testing: A software that performs calculations need to be checked for the accuracy of the results. Eg: Navigation system calculating distance or traffic or time it will take to reach from point A to point B
    4. Ad hoc Testing: Whenever a new type of software is launched, a tester may use his experience to test the software. This type of software doesnt have test plan. For eg: A new game being launched.

  13. Acceptance testing to check if the software satisfies the requirements of the client in respect to the customers contracts, government policy. for instance a mobile company when creating there software one of the government policy is to protect people’s privates information, so when creating the software developers have to consider that no linkage of such information to subscribers.

    1) Accessibility testing e.g. during logging in of some software is has the option of one can speak to it this can help people with no hands to keep typing, and some software are developed to answer.
    2) accuracy is very paramount for example in banking institutions where when you withdraw a certain amount of money it should instantly deduct from the balance, this functionality is very essential
    4.Ad hoc testing this is informal way of testing to see if the created software has buggs, developers or the testers can for example in out an invalid functionality to see if the software will respond to fail the test too

  14. Acceptance testing– acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. EX; gmail, online banking.
    Accessibility testing– accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, color blindness, etc.
    Accuracy Testing–accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. Accuracy testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations.

    Ad hoc Testing- Performed by experienced testers with no documentation or plan.

  16. Acceptance testing:
    to check if the software satisfies the requirements of the client in respect to the customers contracts, government policy, for example a mobile company when creating there software one of the government policy is to protect people’s informations, so when creating the software developers have to consider that no linkage of such information to subscribers.
    3 accuracy is very paramount for example in banking institutions where when you withdraw a certain amount of money it should instantly deduct from the balance, this functionality is very essential
    4.Ad hoc testing this is informal way of testing to see if the created software has buggs, developers or the testers can for example in out an invalid functionality to see if the software will respond to fail the test too

  17. 1. Accessability testing: To test how user friendly it is. eg. Voice recognition in the smart phones.
    2. Accuracy testing: This type of testing is mainly done which involves much of calculation. eg: Software for loan or mortgage calculation
    3.Adhoc testing: Testing doe without any preparation like writing test case is called Adhoc testing. eg. Experienced tester can do regression testing on a product after a 2 weeks sprint without any test case.If he is working on that project for a long time and knows everything about it.
    4.Acceptance testing: Test done by the client to check whether the developed software comply with the requirement or not.
    client can add product to the cart and try to purchase and check the order gets placed without any error.

  18. Software Testing Types:

    Acceptance testing: In this testing , resulted software is tested against client requirements .
    ex : USPS online address change . if we need to change address online , a fee $ 1 should be charged .

    Accessibility testing:
    In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities.
    Providing a text transcript makes the audio information accessible to people who are deaf .

  21. 1. Ans:
    Accessibility testing:
    In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. exmple: Hotmail account.
    Acceptance testing:
    In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. Example: school district software.
    Accuracy testing:
    In the accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. Accuracy testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations. The precision of data storage, data transfer, calculated results need a degree of precision. example: Calculator application.
    Ad hoc testing:
    The ad hoc testing is informal method of software testing. This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software. The software testers use their experience and skills to perform ad hoc testing. It has no plan but performed experimentally by the skill testers.

  22. 1. acceptance testing – is a type of testing where it should pass the clients/customer contracts or operational requirement. for example: in the banking industry – it deals with the customers and also the government regulations.
    2. Accessibility testing – is a type of testing where is specifically for the usability of people with disabilities.
    example: music app or a book app
    3. Accuracy testing – is a type of testing where the accuracy of the results needs to be tested.
    example: any apps that calculates
    4. Ad hoc testing – is a type of testing where experienced based method is used. It has no plan or documentation but it is experimental.The tester usually improvises whats next in the process.
    example: cross-browser testing , saving the form twice for the same action
    example:

  23. Acceptance Testing:software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. eg; Banking systems
    Accessibility Testing:the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, color blindness, and so on.
    Accuracy Testing:testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations .Eg; space crafts,software used for market research.
    Ad hoc Testing: testing is used for new technology or new type of software. The software testers use their experience and skills to perform ad hoc testing. The test documents are not created. Ad hoc testing has no plan and is performed experimentally.

  24. Acceptance Testing: It is done to check the developed software satisfies the client requirements of software. Eg: online shopping like Amazon.
    Accessibility testing: it is basically used to check the usability of the software by users with disabilities. Eg: ATM, Internet banking
    Accuracy testing: This type of testing usually done to check the accuracy of the software with precision value. eg: Mortgage loan, spacecraft, Navigation
    Ad hoc Testing: Testing is used for new technology software, tester use skills and experience to perform testing. This type of testing doesn’t follow any test plan and documentation for testing.

  25. Write the examples of the scenarios/ software for each of above different types of testing.

    1.Acceptance testing — Software has to meets all the requirements and regulations provided by the client. E.g Govt. regulations softwares, Medical Insurance and buying a car insurance policy.
    2.Accessibility testing — testing the software for its user friendliness for handicapped people. E.g there is a different customer service number for hearing impaired people.
    3.Accuracy testing — Data Accuracy is tested here. E.g Banking Softwares for showing Balances , Check for mortgage rates when buying a home
    4.Ad hoc testing — this testing is solely based on experience and skills as no documents are created.

  26. This article explains these four types of testing – Acceptance testing, Accessibility testing, Accuracy testing, Ad hoc testing.

  27. Examples of different types of testing
    – Acceptance testing: Online application forms
    – Accessibility testing: Epilepsy, Dyslexia
    – Accuracy testing: software used for Army
    – Ad hoc testing: Saving a form twice for the same action. For example, if user was to register a user on a website after filling the required fields, click on the Register button multiple times and then check the database to see if multiple records or single record get created.

  28. Acceptance testing: To see whether Bank ATM’s Software is satisfying the requirements of end users or not, Acceptance Testing is required before release the Bank ATM’s software to end user.
    Accessibility Testing: If the user has a low vision then he/she would depend on magnification software. ZoomText is a popular magnifying screen software tool.
    Accuracy Testing: Calculator app, Loan/Mortgage calculator Functionality of banking software
    Ad-hoc Testing: Cross-browser testing- Try to open the new web page on diff -diff browser or diff OS.

    Acceptance Testing :Online Payment application for banks, shopping sites.
    Accuracy: Testing for calculators, measuring devices
    Accessibility Testing : Testing done for users with disabilities
    Adhoc testing : The ad hoc testing is informal method of software testing. This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software. eg. cross browser testing

  30. 1. Acceptance testing: To test how user friendly it is.
    2.Accessibility Testing is a subset of Usability Testing, and it is performed to ensure that the application being tested is usable by people with disabilities like hearing, color blindness, old age and other disadvantaged groups.
    3.Adhoc testing is an informal testing type .This testing requires no documentation/ planning /process to be followed. Since this testing aims at finding defects through random approach, without any documentation, defects will not be mapped to test cases.

  31. List of testing :

    Acceptance testing : According to this testing software should fill- full client requirements.
    Accessibility testing: In this testing tester test that how much comfortable are disable user (color blindness, hearing and etc. )with the software.
    Accuracy testing: In this testing software tested in mathematical way like data storage, data transfer, calculated results.
    Ad hoc testing: In this testing tester test new technology in the software by their skill or experience.

  32. Acceptance testing: It is the last level of software testing performed after System Testing and before making the system available for actual use.
    Accessibility testing:blindness and limited vision, radio buttons, pop-ups, dropdown etc
    Accuracy testing:market research, spacecrafts
    Ad hoc testing:Buddy testing, Pair testing, Monkey testing – Ad hoc testing can be performed when there is limited time to do elaborative testing. Usually adhoc testing is performed after the formal test execution. And if time permits, ad hoc testing can be done on the system. Ad hoc testing will be effective only if the tester is knowledgeable of the System Under Test.

  33. 1. Acceptance testing is done for most of the applications we use to check if they meet the requirements of the client. Ex: internet banking software, gmail application etc.
    2. Accessibility testing is performed to test if the application or software is disabled friendly. Ex: Screen Reader software for the visually impaired which narrates whatever is written on the website
    3. Accuracy testing is done to check for accuracy of results, ,mostly where calculations are involved. Ex: Statistical Analysis Software

  34. • Acceptance testing: to determine whether the software application satisfies its Acceptance Criteria and also help the customers to decide whether to accept the system or not.
    EX: The customer screen allows user to perform search on first and last names
    1. Add few customer names in the database.
    2. Display customer search button
    3. Enter the name to be searched.
    4. Hit Search button.
    5. Expected results should be displayed
    • Accessibility testing: the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, color blindness, and so on. And one should foolow the rules under section508, World wide web consortium(W3C) – web content accessibility guidelines, etc. very strictly.
    • Accuracy testing: This testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations. The precision of data storage, data transfer, calculated results need a degree of precision.
    EX: software used for market research, spacecrafts, etc.
    • Ad hoc testing: This testing is used for new technology or new type of s/w where test docs are not created, has no plans, and performed experimentally based on the experience and skills of testers. Also called as informal testing.
    EX: This can be done only when the testers are having complete knowledge of the product and when the time is very limited and detailed testing is required.

  35. 1.Accetance Testing: With the satisfaction of client requirement, the testing is performed to check the acceptance criteria of contracts, operational requirement etc.
    2.Accesibility Testing: With the usability by the users with disabilities such as hearing,colour blindness etc ,the software is tested.
    3. Accuracy Testing:The software is tested for its accuracy.The software which include calculation, testing is performed on that.
    4.Ad hoc Testing:With the skills and experience of the software testers, the ad hoc testing is performed.No documents or plan are required for ad hoc testing.

  36. 1.Write the examples of the scenarios/ software for each of above different types of testing.
    Acceptance testing: Banking software in which high potential customer’s details are only visible to corresponding personnel bankers.
    Accessibility Testing: websites and mobile applications usable by people of all abilities and disabilities. and screen readers.
    Accuracy testing: software used in medical field for diagnosing a medical condition or conducting a medical procedure .
    Ad hoc testing: click the “back” button after log out from a particular website to check whether it display the error message or redirect the user to the login page again

  37. Acceptance testing:
    In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements.
    Accessibility testing:
    In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, colour blindness, and so on.
    Accuracy testing:
    In the accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. Accuracy testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations.
    Ad hoc testing:
    The ad hoc testing is informal method of software testing. This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software.

  38. Acceptance Testing: A test by the clients to see if software meets their requirements. Example: Financial website performs correct calculation.

    Accessibility testing: a test to see if the software can be used by people with disabilities. Any of the following are example of the disability and the software has to be tested through accessibility testing:
    •Blindness and limited vision
    •Deafness and other hearing disabilities
    •Deaf blindness
    •Epilepsy
    •Dyslexia
    •Motor disabilities from conditions like spinal cord injury, MS, cerebral palsy

    Accuracy testing: a test to check the correctness of the software. For example the weight measurement you obtained shows 3.2 kg but actual weight is 10 kg. This means your measurement is not accurate. Accuracy is different from precision.

    Ad hoc testing: is an informal testing type with an aim to break the system. This type of test does not follow any test design techniques or any structure. This can be achieved with ‘error guessing’ testing technique. There are 3 types of ad hoc testing: – – Buddy testing
    – Pair testing
    – Monkey testing.
    Example of ad hoc testing would be Navigating through the work flow and using browser “Back” button to ensure user is correctly being navigated to the correct page that the user previously visited.

  39. Acceptance testing
    In acceptance testing software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to the requirement . Examples :customer contracts and government regulations.
    Accessibility testing
    In the accessibility testing the software is tested for its usability by the user with disabilities
    example :colorblindness and hearing disabilities
    Accuracy testing
    In the accuracy testing the software is tested for its accuracy in the result
    example: market research and space craft
    Ad hoc testing
    the ad hoc testing is informal method of software testing and used for new technology or new type of software

  40. acceptance testing-the s/w is tested by a group of end users or by IT team to make sure all the requirements of the client is achieved.If the client said yes ,then the system will pass the test.
    accessibility testing- checking whether the disabled people can use the system easily.eg.if some one is color blind that person can not identify if anything is directed by changing the color.
    accuracy testing-checking the accuracy in result.eg:weather forcasting
    ad-hoc testing-informal method of s/w testing.it is used for new technologies.It does not need any documentation.

  41. 1. cceptance testing — is done to see if it meets all the requirements and regulations provided by the client. E.g buying a car insurance policy, there are certain requirements which must be fulfilled. online banking etc.
    2.In the accessibility testing, the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities. The disabilities include hearing, colour blindness, and so on. eg: Special keyboard made for the users for easy typing who have motor control difficulties
    3.Accuracy Testing:The software is tested for its accuracy.The software which include calculation, testing is performed on that.For eg,Accounting and Banking
    4.Ad hoc testing this is informal way of testing to see if the created software has buggs, developers or the testers can for example in out an invalid functionality to see if the software will respond to fail the test too.eg: cross browser testing

  42. Acceptance testing: All softwares will undergo User acceptance testing, but software dealing in legal contracts will also undergo acceptance testing to make sure all government rules, regulations and guidelines as adhered to in the final legal document generated, for eg: Auto Insurance policies, Health Insurance policies etc.
    Accessibility testing: All software providing user accessibility features undergoes accessibility testing to make sure they are working properly. For eg: Computer Operating systems providing read feature option while logging in the computer.
    Accuracy testing: software programs where accuracy of data is crucial, accuracy testing is done for the software. For eg: Banking software, Scientific Reports generating software.
    Ad hoc testing: This type of testing is mainly done for experimental software programs which are evolving in nature and don’t have set confirmed rules. The testers rely on their experience and conduct such tests in an informal manner. For eg: software for new scientific experiments.

  43. Write the examples of the scenarios/ software for each of above different types of testing.
    Acceptance testing:
    You test web browser/cross platform compatibility, for example when client uses different browsers to open the web application or uses different devices like iPhone or Samsung. You can also test scenarios like, the actions the users might perform on the system and how the system responds.
    Accessibility testing:
    Making sure the web application provides,alternative text and image assistive technologies like speech input as alternative for keyboard input.
    Accuracy testing:
    Data transmission accuracy between end-user and back-end.
    Ad-hoc testing:
    Example would be, trying to perform same actions on different devices like on mobile app and web browsers.

  44. Write the examples of the scenarios/ software for each of above different types of testing.
    Acceptance Testing –
    To test the acceptance criteria that is the software meets the client requirements. Types of Acceptance Testing – UAT, BAT, contractual and regulatory testing , operational testing .
    Example : gmail login etc
    Accessibility Testing –
    To test if the software is usable by disable people. The disabilities include hearing , color blindness etc.
    Example of such softwares are : Speech recognition software, screen reader software, screen magnification software etc
    Accuracy Testing –
    In accuracy testing , the software is tested for its accuracy in results. The testing is performed on software which mostly include calculations.
    Example : software for market research, spacecrafts etc
    Adhoc Testing –
    In adhoc Testing , no proper specifications are provided for testing. It basically depends on the skill and experience of the tester. It is an informal testing. No need to prepare any test documents. It is usually done after more formal testing techniques are used.
    Example:
    ~Testing the application across platforms ( different Operating systems or browsers).
    ~Testing to see if the application can work properly with different browser settings .

  45. Acceptance testing:
    Testing technique performed to determine whether or not the software system has met the requirement specifications. The software is tested against the customer contracts, government regulations, operational requirements and so on.
    Examples : User Acceptance Testing (UAT), Business Acceptance Testing (BAT), Contract Acceptance Testing (CAT), Operational Acceptance Testing (OAT)

    Accessibility testing:
    Software Testing performed to ensure that the application being tested is usable by people with disabilities like hearing, color blindness, old age and other disadvantaged groups. It is a subset of Usability Testing.
    Example of software developed based on accessibility testing : Speech RecognitionSoftware , Screen reader software , Screen Magnification Software etc.

    Accuracy testing:
    In the accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in the results. Accuracy testing is performed on the software that include mostly the calculations. The precision of data storage, data transfer, calculated results need a degree of precision.
    Example: software used for market research, spacecrafts, etc.

    Ad hoc testing:
    It is an informal testing type with an aim to break the system. This Software Testing type is usually an unplanned activity and is performed experimentally. It does not follow any test design techniques to create test cases. In fact it does not create test cases altogether. It is used for new technology or new type of software.
    Example : monkey test in which u randomly test the product or application without test cases with a goal to break the system.

  46. Acceptance Testing – photo management application for a photography studio, the client should test that they are able to upload and manage their photos
    Accessibility Testing – Testing Speech recognition software
    Adhoc testing – Testing for the proper working of an application when the browser settings are different.
    Accuracy Testing – if the calculator application does all the operations correctly

  47. Examples of the scenarios/ software for different types of testing.:
    Acceptance testing: In this testing, it is checked if client’s acceptance criteria and requirement satisfies.
    Accessibility testing: In accessibility testing, software is tested if it can be accessed by the user with disabilities like hearing disability, color blind etc.
    Accuracy testing: In this testing, software is tested for accuracy in result that mostly includes calculations.
    Ad hoc testing: It is informal testing with no plan and no documentation. It is used for new technology where tester use their personal experience and skills.

  48. Acceptance testing: testing that is done to check if it meets the clients needs. Different types of policies can be used as an example to this, policies are typically looked over and over to be sure all the needs of the client are met.
    Accessibility testing: software that is used for any person with a disability: color blindness or a hearing impairment.
    Accuracy testing: tested for the accuracy of the results. This type of testing can be done aviation experts.
    Ad hoc testing: Informal type of testing, usually used for new software or a new piece of technology. There is no plan with this type of testing, such as cross browser testing.

  49. Acceptance testing:- to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client.
    Eg. Auto cad is a software used for designing. In this testing is done if the software comprises all the requirements or functionalities needed for design.
    Accessibility testing:- the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities.
    Eg. Testing software of traffic light if it notifies the green or red light for those who can’t see by giving a sound.
    Accuracy testing:- the software is tested for its accuracy in the results
    Eg. Testing Data storage, capacity,(how much data can be saved or transfer) in a computer. or how much photos can be stored in photo gallery in mobile device.
    Ad hoc:- software testing performed without planning and documentation.
    Eg. mobile, any upgraded work devices.

  50. Acceptance testing:test the compliance of the software with business requrements. this would be required by all software applications to match the requirement to actual behavior of the software

    Accessibility testing: for users that ind it hard to read screens, screen reader software would be of assistance

    Accuracy testing:is used where precision is required in calculations. example: spaceship programs

    Ad hoc testing:informal testing with no documentation. this maybe done for new technologies or where time is very short

  51. 1. Acceptance Testing: UAT- When software is ready, it is submitted to the client for checking whether it meets the requirements. This is Acceptance Testing
    2. Accessibility Testing: When a software is tested for usability for users with disabilities it is known as acceptability testing. Example ATM machine being tested by an user who is blind to check if the software is accessible to blind people.
    3. Accuracy Testing: A software that performs calculations need to be checked for the accuracy of the results. Eg: Navigation system calculating distance or traffic or time it will take to reach from point A to point B
    4. Adhoc Testing: Whenever a new type of software is launched, a tester may use his experience to test the software. This type of software doesn’t have test plan. For eg: A new game being launched.

  52. 1) Acceptance Testing – In the acceptance testing, software is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. An example of this type of testing would be a user testing the checkout page for a retail site. The user would have to follow all the steps starting from selecting a product, clicking on checkout link, entering personal details and choosing payment and shipping options and finally confirming the order. Here testing this feature is very essential as any defect in the process could lead to loss of business for the client.
    2) Accessibility testing – Accessibility testing is a step-by-step process of thoroughly and diligently checking whether or not a website or mobile app is completely usable by people with disabilities like blindness, limited vision, color blindness, deafness, dyslexia and motor disabilities like MS, cerebral palsy, arthritis, etc. For example, one of the tools used in accessibility testing is AccessColor which checks the color brightness, color combinations and color contrast between colors on a website to ensure that color contrast is sufficient for people with visual impairments.
    3) Accuracy testing – In accuracy testing, the software is tested for its accuracy in results and it mostly deals with calculations. For example, in space exploration programs, there are numerous software systems for control / command of the spacecraft, intricate codes and millions of instructions that need to be tested for accuracy so that the space program is a success.
    4) Ad – hoc testing – Ad- hoc testing is an unscripted random software testing method where the tester is allowed to execute any scenario or test case to explore the system. It is done without any formal test plan, test cases, procedures or documentation. For example, navigating through a site and using browser “Back” button to ensure user is correctly being navigated to the correct page that the user previously visited.

  53. Accuracy testing is used to determine how accurate a software is by the results it produces.

    Acceptance testing is used to make sure it meets the client’s requirements.

    Accessibility testing is used to insure it is user friendly by all including disabled personnels.

    Ad-hoc testing is a testing that is done at random without any plan, just for experiments.

  54. 1)Accuracy testing:_ the software is tested for its accuracy in the results, for example in currency convertor and auto driven cars
    2)Ad hoc testing:_This type of software testing is used for new technology or new type of software, for example software that can make call with voice recognition
    3) Acceptance testing: is tested to check if it satisfies the acceptance criteria of the client with respect to their requirements. internet banking application
    4)Accessibility testing:_the software is tested for its usability by the users with disabilities, which may include hearing, and color blindness.
