Question 1

Which of the following is an important success factor for any significant automation project?

Answer : C

Question 2

You have been asked to implement test automation for a project that is not meeting its deadlines. After further analysis you discover that the manual testers are not able to keep up with the new feature testing because the regression testing is taking 75% of their time. As a result, the new features are being released with many defects and customers are complaining about the quality.

Given this information, what metric SHOULD you be tracking to show the value of test automation for this project?

Answer : B

Question 3

You are implementing test automation for a project and you want to be able to generate test cases automatically using a series of test design tools which use a variety of test design techniques such as decision tables, pairwise testing and boundary value analysis.

You also want to generate test data automatically which can then be used by the tests.

Initially these tests will be run manually to verify their correctness and ultimately you want to include them in the test execution tool so that they can run unattended.

Which layer of the gTAA will be used to support the specification of the test cases and preparation of the test data?

Answer : B

Question 4

You are a TAE working for a software house which provides quarterly releases of its software to its customers. There are many different versions of the SUT that need to be tested simultaneously by different tests teams.
