Quality and Testing

  • Andrew Davis
Chapter

Abstract

Quality refers to the degree to which software does what it’s supposed to do, and is built in a way that is structurally sound. Testing refers to checking and giving feedback on software quality. Testing can assess functional quality: does it do what it’s supposed to do and not do things it shouldn’t? Testing can also assess structural quality: is it reliable, secure, maintainable, performant, and appropriately sized?
