HI ALL,

SEVEN MAIN TYPES OF TEST METRICS ARE FOLLOWING:-

  1. USER PARTICIPATION METRICS
  2. PATH TESTED METRICS
  3. ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA TESTED METRICS
  4. TEST COST METRICS
  5. TEST AUTOMATION METRICS
  6. COST TO LOCATE DEFECTS METRICS
  7. DETECTED PRODUCTION DEFECT METRICS

I thought that the types of Test metrics are as follows:

1. USER APRTICIPATION - User participation test time Vs. Total Test time

2. PATH TESTED - No of paths tested Vs. Total Number of paths

3. ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA TESTED - Acceptance Criteria verified Vs. Total Acceptance Criteria

4. TEST COST - Test Cost Vs. Total System Cost

5. COST TO LOCATE DEFECT - No of defects located in the testing. This metric shows the cost to locate a defect.

6. DETECTED PRODUCTION DEFECT - No. of defects detected in production Vs. Application System size

7. TEST AUTOMATION - Cost of Manual test Effort Vs. Total Test Cost.

Pl. clarify. Thanks

The below metrics are used for evaluating application system testing.

1: User participation(user participation test time divided by total test time): Metric identifies the user involvement in testing.

2.Acceptance criteria tested(acceptance criteria verified versus tatal acceptance criteria): Metic identifies the number of user-identified criteria that were evaluated during the test process

3. Defects uncovered in testing( defects located by testting  versus total systems defects):Metric shows the percent of defects that were identified as a result of testing.

4.Hang-up analysis(installed changes versus number of application system hang-ups) Metric show the effectives of testing in reducing system hang-ups through maintenence changes.

5.Test Automation(cost of manual test effort versus total test cost): Metric shows the percent of testing performed manually and that performed automatically.
