As a tester you can be asked to review test cases. Except for a peer-review situation, most likely these test cases will be created for an other test level then yours. For example you might receive Integration Test test cases if you’re a System Tester.
Be sure to stick to your role; coverage and correctness will primarily be reviewed by a designer!
Relation to the document
You must feel confident to announce that “These test cases complement my test cases and do not overlap or leave a gap with my test cases.”
- It is clear to me how these test cases where created. (Test technique)
- The test cases do belong to the test level they are created for.
- The test plan is followed.
- Input, output, interfaces and screens are tested on the correct way for the test level at hand.
- The test cases complement my test cases.
- The way the test cases are described makes them transmissible to an other tester for execution.
- Execution steps contain an actor and an action. (e.g. “The user presses the red button.“)
- Expected results describe a verifiable result. (e.g. “The output file on location A contains parameter ABC with value XYZ.“)
