Test Coverage Readiness Checklist

Its primary purpose is to help review the readiness for test case execution during the System Testing or System Integration Testing phase.

The Test Case Coverage Readiness Checklist is a tool designed for use by the QA Team. Its primary purpose is to help review the readiness for test case execution during the System Testing or System Integration Testing phase. It should be filled out prior to each software release and used by the QA team before initiating test execution.  It contains nearly 40 questions that are broken down into coverage areas. Each area is reviewed for completeness and readiness for test case execution to help ensure quality coverage for the upcoming release.

The sections covered include the following areas:

Unit Test Coverage

This section helps to verify that unit tests have been conducted and a delivery schedule has been agreed upon by all team members. It also questions release notes and integration completeness.

Requirements Traceability Coverage

Helps verify that each business scenario and use case have associated test cases and that all test cases are mapped and arranged correctly.

Data Integrity Coverage

The storage, retrieval, modification of data is covered in this section, and verifies the existence of test cases for all input and outputs.

UI Coverage

Test cases that cover the user interface links, flow, spelling, positions, and content are verified here.

Functional Coverage

This section validates positive and negative test cases for all functionality, test cases for handling dates, boundary condition tests, scheduled jobs, language requirements, calculations, and error messages.

Usability Coverage

Test cases to help verify accessibility issues and how user-friendly the application is are questioned here.

Performance Coverage

Any performance related test cases for latency, scalability, and benchmarking are identified in this section.

Compatibility Coverage

This covers all test cases for browser, platform, or OS compatibility.

Security Coverage

Anything relating to security or confidentiality are examined here.

Failover/recovery Coverage
