More comprehensive testing that delivers higher quality applications more quickly at less cost. Or mathematically stated:Functional Testing + Regression Testing + User Acceptance Testing = Progression Testing

Progression Testing is nothing but, test the application with Old Test Data.

Progression tests used in the current release would roll into regression tests for future releases.

The purpose of this task is to run the system with existing test cases that were retained from the system tests. The reasoning is that if the test data are held constant and something does not work, it must be due to the change(s) made to the system. This proves that all of the previous system functions still work.

The word progression test also seems to be a false translation from German. In English there are regression tests and non-regression-tests while in German there are only "Regressionstests". This is because the language does not allow a translation as "Nicht-Regressionstests" because that would sound strange (translated back it would be more like "no regression tests"). Therefore some Germans use progression as replacement for non-regression. This leads to the problem that when they want to translate their "Progressionstests" back to English they thing of progress testing and not non-regression-testing ^.^
