To make a script good one we need to maintain:

1) Description of the Script (Like Script Name, author, Date of Creation, etc)
2) Followed coding standards are not(like declaring variables, Intendation, etc)
3) Included Comments where ever needed
4) Simple to understand
5) Creating Reusable functions where ever needed in the script

Just to be clear, a test script can be authored for manual or automated testing. 

If the test script is to be used for manual testing, the it should:
1) identify prerequisites
2) describe test steps clearly and concisely
3) provide expectations
4) identify criteria for failure

If the test script is to be used as a test harness in a test repository with test engine, then it should:
1) be simple
2) be concise
3) be clear
4) be reuseable
