Identify the Risk in testing.

In risk-based testingthe selection of test conditions is guided by the risks identified to product quality. These product quality risks also are used to determine the allocation of effort for the testing the test conditions and for prioritizing the created test cases.

When defects are identified before product release, testing has reduced quality risk by identifying the defects and providing methods to handle them.
Here are some examples of quality risks:
  • Delayed response to users action: Non-functional risk pertaining to performance
  • Reports with the wrong result or incorrect calculations: Functional risk pertaining to precision
  • Complicated UI and input fields: Non-functional risk pertaining to usability & system adoption
The stakeholders can use any methods given below to identify risks:

How to identify risks?

  • Making independent reviews
  • Existing templates of risks
  • Retrospective meetings in projects
  • Conducting risk workshops
  • Brainstorming with all stakeholders
  • Creating and using checklists
After risks have been identified, evaluation of identified risks is done.

Risk assessment usually involves these activities:
  • Classifying each risk
  • Identifying the probability of each risk occurring
  • Impact of each risk
  • Identifying or assigning risk properties like risk owner
Risks in product quality can be minimized even before execution of test case begins.

What is Agile Testing?

The agile testing is a software convenance which follows up the attempt of agile software development; it is started from the intial of the activity with connected affiliation amid development and testing different from the waterfall method. It is a connected development methodology, area the requirements advance amid the client and the self–organizing teams.

Fundamentals of Agile Testing

There are some benefits which will bright that how agile testing is beneficial. Following are the points:
  • Less Documentations
  • Not follow phases system as in waterfall process.
  • It saves time and money both. 
  • Issues found at the earlier step. 
  • Run devlopment and testing activities in parallel.
  • Keeping code clean by fixing defects within same iteration.
  • It provides approved acknowledgment from the end user.
