The test script conforms to the related test case
|Ensure that the test script conforms to the specification established in the test case if one is associated with the test
script. The test case captures the intent of the test; the test script must conform to this intent.
The test script is testable
The test script is reusable
|Ensure that your test scripts can be reused by designing your test scripts to maximize reuse. Promoting reuse takes
different forms depending on whether you are generating, programming, or recording test scripts.
The test script is prescriptive and unambiguous
|Ensure that the test script represents clear instructions on how the test must be run and how the results should be
analyzed. While non-automated tests can be written in such a way that the tester can have leeway in how the test is
precisely run, there is no room for creativity in how the test results are to be analyzed for success or failure.
The test script is named consistently with the other test work products
|Ensure that the naming of your test scripts is consistent with other test-related work products. For example, if you
are creating test classes for each of your test cases, ensure that the naming represents this relationship.
Alternatively, if you are building test scripts inside of a library, use a consistent naming convention to reflect the
library or libraries.
The test script provides appropriate test coverage
|Ensure that your test scripts provide test coverage consistent with the system under test.
