ISTQB Dumps, Exam Paper 19: ISEB ISTQB Foundation Software Testing

 
 
Question:
 
Explain what you understand by the terms, Regression Testing and Re-Testing.
 
Answer:

Regression Testing:
  • Running tests to ensure that the software has not regressed in anyway as a result of changes to the software and/or environment. Regression testing is running passed tests again to ensure that they still pass.
Re-Testing
  • This is running a test again that had found a fault to check that the fault has been fixed correctly. Re-testing is running a failed test again to ensure that it now passes.

  1. Its said that whenever you fix a fault you create a new fault or create a potential to create a fault. This is why we do regression testing.
