III. A typical outcome of an audit includes observations and recommendations, corrective actions and a pass/fail assessment

IV. An audit is not the appropriate mechanism to use at the code review in order to detect defects prior to dynamic testing

III. and IV. are true; I and II are false;

D.

I, III and IV are true; II. is false;

Question 2

During the follow-upphase the following conditions are checked:

X1. The code has been completely reviewed

X2. All the identified defects have been correctly fixed and the modified code has been compiled successfully and run through all the static analyzers used by the project without warnings and errors

X3. The modified code is available under the configuration management system with a new version number for the specified CI

If these conditions are fulfilled then the review process terminates.

Which of the following characteristics of a formal review is missing in this description?

Number of correct responses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

Defined entry and exit criteria

B.

Checklists to be used by the reviewers

C.

Deliverables such as reports, evaluation sheets or other review summary sheets

D.

Metrics for reporting on the review effectiveness, efficiency, and progress

Question 3

Improving the Testing Process

Which of the following statements about the TMMi test process improvement model is true?

Number of correct responses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

In TMMi all the process areas at lower levels must be 75% complete by achieving specific and generic goals in order to claim the higher level

B.

TMMi provides an approach for test process improvement such as the IDEAL (Initiating, Diagnosing, Establishing, Acting and Learning) model

C.

TMMi has a staged architecture for process improvement with seven maturity levels

D.

At TMMi level 1 testing is chaotic without a defined process, and it is often seen as the same as debugging

Question 4

Improving the Testing Process

Which of the following statements about the STEP test process improvement model is true?

Number of correctresponses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

In the STEP model, tests validate the requirements and use cases when they are developed

B.

The STEP model stresses defect detection and demonstration of capability, whereas the defect prevention is a secondary potential goalof testing

C.

The STEP model assures that the system requirements specification and the test design specification processes don't overlap

D.

In the STEP model, testware design occurs after coding

Question 5

After the presentation, you are asked to explain the chart.

Assume you have applied a full risk-based testing strategy.

Which of the following answers would you expect to best describe the pie chart?

Number of correct responses: 1

K43 credits

Options:

A.

All the risk items have been covered with tests. No more risk items remain to test

B.

According to the full risk-based testing strategy applied, it is very likely that the highest-risk items, tests and bugs remain in the blue and red areas. Therefore, it isvery risky to release the application

C.

Only the lowest-risk items, tests and bugs should remain in the blue and red areas. Therefore the application can be released at any time subject to management of the items identified in those areas

D.

97 percent ofthe risk items has been tested. No open bugs or test failures remain. Only 3 percent of risk items remains to be covered by the remaining test

Question 6

Test Management

For which of the following activities would the costs be classified as a cost of detection?

Number of correct responses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

Writing test specifications according to the test design

B.

Training developers to better understand the new features of the coding language they will use on the project

C.

Re-running a test case, during the system testing phase, to verifythat a fix eliminates a previously found defect

D.

Fixing field failures

Question 7

Test Tools and Automation

Assume you are a Test Manager involved in system testing of a CRM application for a Pay-TV company. Currently the application is able to support a proper number of users assuring the required responsiveness. Since the business is expected to grow, you have been asked to evaluate the ability of the application to grow to support more users while maintaining the same responsiveness.

Which of the following tools would you expect to be the most useful at performing this evaluation?

Number of correct responses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

Coverage tools

B.

Test management tools

C.

Static analysis tools

D.

Performance tools

Question 8

Test Tools and Automation

After a selectionprocess you have selected a test management tool that is going be introduced in your organization and used by your test team in a pilot project.

You have already identified the member of your test team who will be the administrator of the tool, since he/she has a significant experience with the administration of test management tools and so he/she is able to make effective and efficient up-front decisions about "how" the tool will be used. You have also developed a training plan for the other members of your test team.

In collaboration with the administrator of the tool you have also devised standard ways of managing, storing and maintaining the tool and its assets including backup/restore procedures.

You have also analyzed standard formats supported by the tool (CSV, XLS, XML, etc.) to export, import and archive all the information managed by the tool itself (requirements, test case specifications, test plans etc.) for compliance with the most important test management tools, in order to minimize the impacts of migrating this information to a new tool that could replace the existing one in the future.

Which of the following phases in the lifecycle of the new tool has NOT been adequately considered in this description?

Number of correct responses: 1

K21 credit

Options:

A.

Acquisition

B.

Support and maintenance

C.

Evolution

D.

Retirement
