Questions 10

You are the Test Manager on a new project. The schedule is aggressive and will require the team to work at peak efficiency. The requirements are not well defined yet, but

it is clear that the project will be using new technologies. To help the developers meet the development schedule, an offshore group will be added to the development

team.

At this time there is not enough budget to add more testing resources. The project stakeholders are very concerned about the quality of the delivered product and will be

watching the project closely, particularly during the testing cycles. The exit criteria from the system test level require no open high priority/severity defects, 100% pass rate

for all test cases covering risks that are classified as "high" or "very high", 95% pass rate for all "medium" risks and 75% pass rate for all "low" and "very low" risks.

Given this information, which of the activities of the standard test process are the most critical for the Test Manager to perform? [3]

Options:

A.

Requirements reviews

B.

Test execution

C.

Test monitoring and control

D.

Project management, particularly regarding scheduling and budgeting

You are managing a project that will be using a model-based testing strategy.

Which of the following is an activity that will be needed in order to implement this strategy? [1]

Options:

A.

Conduct a quality risk analysis with all affected stakeholders.

B.

Conduct operational profiling to determine the expected usage of the system.

C.

Select an appropriate quality standard, such as ISO 9126, to be used to guide the testing.

B.

Working extra hours, resulting in a successful product deployment

C.

Questions 17

You are the Test Manager of a four-person test team working for a small distribution company with a single warehouse. Your team has been working with a third party development team on a new

inventory management system. The company expects this system to generate approximately one million dollars per annum in profits for the company. Early in the project, various risks were

identified, and steps taken to mitigate those risks.

For example, you sent your test team for training on the new system, and upgraded the test environment. There are still some lingering risks that have not been addressed, but they have been

determined to have a low chance of occurring, with minimal impact if they do occur.

What would be the best option to mitigate these remaining risks? [3]

Options:

A.

Note the risks, and ignore them for now.

B.

Redo the project test plan to add additional testing for these risk items.

C.

Contract with the Risk Protection Insurance company to assume these risks at a cost of $500,000 per annum.

D.

Create a cross-functional team to work to reduce the impact and likelihood of these risks coming to fruition.

Questions 19

You are a new Test Manager on a maintenance release for an existing mature product that is expected to be retired in the not too distant

future. The previous release had utilized a performance regression test suite written in an in-house custom tool using the same

programming language as the product itself. This suite will most likely require tweaking to ensure it works with the new version of the

product. While there are several members in the performance testing team, the original author of the performance testing tool has moved on

to another company, and none of the remaining staff have a great deal of familiarity with the performance test scripts used to test this

product.

How would you recommend this scenario be addressed? [3]

Options:

A.

Retire the in-house tool and switch to a vendor supported tool for performance testing.

B.

Reduce the scope of the product testing to exclude performance testing.

C.

Make the in-house tool available to the open source community.

D.

Leverage the development team to fill any knowledge gaps in the in-house tool.
