Graphics TS General Overview

(General and summary description, history, etc.)

The Specification

(A peek at the spec, what it looks like, markup language, test assertions, etc)


(Level: is it detailed? Or rather "Basic Effectivity" (LH) or "smoke test" (DD)? How comprehensive (breadth-wise) is the coverage? What structural organization does it have (testing areas, functional modules, ...)?

Test case description language

(how are test cases described, catalogued, etc?)

Test assertions & traceability

(how are test assertions identified in the specification, extracted or pointed to, etc. How are tests linked to their test assertions?)

Assessing & evaluating

(How are the results of application of a test case assessed or evaluated?)


(How are test results recorded and/or reported?)


(what is the user interface to the test suite, what harnesses and/or frameworks are there for presenting the tests and navigating through the test suite?)

Discretion, optionality, etc

(if these are a feature of the base spec, how are they handled by the test suite?)

IUT description & TS Configuration

(is there any language for describing the implementation under test (IUT), and are there any facilities to configure custom test suites to the implementation?)

Automation features

(applicable to both the generation of test materials from TCDL and other materials, as well as to configuration and applications of test regimes)

Issues identified

(any interesting issues you came upon in the suite)


(anything else you want to say?)
