Hi all, first post on the MoT Club here, so be gentle!
So, I’ve recently been working in a Assurance role, testing against risks. It’s quite new to me as my job is normally in verification.
I’ve found myself doing a lot of exploratory testing and using a lot of techniques from the Rapid Software Testing course (and I’m loving it).
But, my question is, what do people think about reporting a verdict for exploratory tests?
We all know people loooove verdicts, “How many tests passed, how many failed?!”.
I’m finding it works when the testing went well, i.e. this session is a PASS, no problems found and all the risks were controlled well enough.
But, when problems were found slapping FAIL over a whole exploratory session doesn’t really fit.
My manager is actually very good at sitting with me and going through my session sheets after the testing. But when it comes to a test summary report, I feel I need a verdict.
I’m toying with the idea of using “Report” as a verdict? Meaning, there’s something was found here/something to take note of.
What does everyone think, anyone else has the same problem/thoughts?
