About the test

The Software Quality Assurance online test assesses the ability to design functional tests and follow testing procedures.

The assessment includes work-sample tasks such as:

  • Understanding differences between different types of testing.
  • Creating and optimizing test cases based on a specification.
  • Using different techniques to cover all cases, including corner cases. 

A good QA tester or software developer should be able to demonstrate their ability to design effective and efficient tests for a given system, as well as understand the key concepts and techniques behind test development, in order to assure that software works as expected.

An online shop sells pet food and accessories. Customers can choose goods and conclude their orders on its website. The order is processed according to these rules:

  • A customer enters his or her order and clicks SUBMIT. Depending on its total value, the order is set to either of the following states:
    • APPROVED, if the value is less than or equal to $100.
    • PENDING, if the value is greater than $100 and the shop's personnel have to verify the validity of the online payment.
  • For PENDING orders, shop personnel can click one of the following:
    • APPROVE if the payment is confirmed, thereby setting the order to the state of APPROVED.
    • CANCEL if the payment is invalid, thereby setting the order to the state of CANCELED.
  • For orders in an APPROVED state, the shop personnel choose the SHIP action after the goods are actually sent, thereby setting the order to a state of SHIPPED.

Prepare the optimal (effective and efficient) set of test cases, each containing either a complete or partial state lifecycle, required to test this system.

Your team is developing software for a thermostat controller that has a switch for turning the heat on and off.

The following algorithm has been implemented:

  • If the heating switch is on:
    • If the measured temperature is equal to or higher than 23°C, the heat is turned off.
    • If the measured temperature is lower than 23°C, the heat is turned on.
  • If the heating switch is off:
    • If the measured temperature falls below 5°C, the heat is turned on to prevent the water in the heating system from freezing.
    • Otherwise, the heat is turned off.

Define the optimal (effective and efficient) set of boundary test cases to adequately test the thermostat controller.

What others say

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
