TST102 Fundamentals of Test Evaluation

Lesson 19 – Analysis and Evaluation RESOURCES I PRIMT I HELP

Lesson Overview

The four stages of testing are test planning, test conduct, analysis & evaluation and test reporting . In this lesson you will learn about the third stage, analysis & evaluation.

This lesson discusses and compares the terms “test”, “evaluation”, and “analysis”, and describes some key evaluation principles and strategies.

Specifically, this lesson:

• Defines “analysis” and “evaluation”;

• Identifies the principles and strategies associated with analyzing data and evaluating systems;

• Outlines the role played by “quality” requirements ;

• Covers key elementary statistical concepts .

Upon completion of this lesson, you should be able to apply the principles and strategies associated with evaluating systems and analyzing test data.

Test versus Evaluation

To understand the analysis and evaluation, stage of the testing you first should understand the difference between “test” and “evaluation”.

Tes ting is the process of exercising a component or system in order to obtain performance data.

Evaluation is the process of interpreting and analyzing test data to define system performance results for decision makers.

The data that is processed during evaluation can come from many different sources, including:

• Current tests ;

• Previous tests ;

• Modeling and simulation;

• Analysis ;

• Inspection;

• Demonstration;

• Expert opinion.

Whatever the source of the data, it must be analyzed first before information useful to decision- makers can be generated.

Analysis

By itself, test data is rarely useful to decision-makers. It must be turned into information. A vital step towards producing useful information from raw test data is analysis. Analysis involves more than just re­ stating the data.

Analysis is the process of using various mathematical or graphical techniques to structure and interpret test data in order to identify patterns, comparisons, or cause/effect.

• Is the data reasonable?

• Has enough data been gathered?

• Is the qualjtv of the data sufficient?

The use of statistics is a key tool in the overall analysis process.

I s t he dat a reasonable?

This question reflects the comparison of the pre-test predictions with the actual test results to verify the test was run properly and the data falls within the expected range .
