    Hi

    Test reporting is concerned with summarizing information about the testing endeavour, including:
    o What happened during a period of testing, such as dates when exit criteria were met.
    o Analyzed information and metrics to support recommendations and decisions about future
    actions, such as an assessment of defects remaining, the economic benefit of continued
    testing, outstanding risks, and the level of confidence in tested software.
    The outline of a test summary report is given in ‘Standard for Software Test Documentation’ (IEEE 829).

    Metrics should be collected during and at the end of a test level in order to assess:
    o The adequacy of the test objectives for that test level.
    o The adequacy of the test approaches taken.
    o The effectiveness of the testing with respect to its objectives.

    Regards,

    Test cases are used to identify the defects in project. This reports are viewed by clients as per SRS. This is very important role in a project.

    There is a difference between test result and test report.
    Test result is output of your test case execution.
    Test report is consolidated test results in terms of functional and non functional behaviour of entire system
