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.

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

An algorithm has been implemented to match the following diagram representing the decision-making process of a thermostat controller designed to regulate heating:

Thermostat Algorithm    

The process begins with checking the status of the heating switch. The 'heat off' temperature range is inclusive (i.e. includes the value at the boundary).

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

State Transition
Test Case Design

The workflow of an ATM is defined by the following rules:

  • The ATM goes into the WORKING state with the TURN ON action.
  • When in the WORKING state, the ATM can:
    • ACCEPT CARD which switches it to the CARD ACCEPTED state.
    • Start the AUTOMATIC TESTING action which switches it to the SELF TESTING state.
  • Within CARD ACCEPTED the ATM can:
    • CALL POLICE which switches it to the WAITING POLICE state.
    • PROCESS TRANSACTION which switches it to the TRANSACTION PROCESSED state.
  • From the TRANSACTION PROCESSED state the ATM goes into the SELF TESTING state with the PULL CARD action.
  • When in the SELF TESTING state, the ATM can either:
    • PASS, which switches it to the WORKING state.
    • FAIL, which switches it to the WAITING SERVICE state.
  • From the WAITING SERVICE state, the ATM can either:
    • Be SERVICED, which puts the ATM into the WORKING state.
    • Be RETESTED, which returns the ATM to the SELF TESTING state.

Prepare the optimal (effective and efficient) set of test cases required to test this workflow.

Cover all state transitions and minimize repeating the same state transitions.

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.
