The producer's view of quality is:
Meets Requirements
Quality assurance is
Meant to prevent defects
Quality control is
Product focused
Quality assurance is responsible for all of the following except
Telling technicians how to perform their duties

QA IS responsible for:
Quality planning
measurement and analysis
Facilitation
Quality control techniques may include all the following except:
Defining standards and procedures

QC techniques include:
system testing
integration testing
inspections
To calculate the Cost of Quality you must add all of the following costs except:
Cost to build the product

Cost of quality includes:
Failure costs
appraisal costs
preventive costs
Software testing is
an appraisal of cost of quality
PDCA stands for
Plan, Do, Check, Act
A policy statement answers the question
WHY
We test software for all of the following reasons except:
To Verify run times

We test software to:
reduce risk
validate requirements work
establish confidence that a program works
A successful test function is one that
Is performed throughout the development life cycle
Functional tests validate:
system requirements
White Box testing is used to validate
Program structure
White box testing is normally performed by
Deveoper who wrote the code
The following are white box test techniques except:
Boundary value analysis

White Box test techniques:
Statement coverage
Path Coverage
Conditions
Black box testing is used to validate
business requirements
Black box testing is typically performed by
independent test teams and business users
The following are black box test techniques:
Equivalence portioning and boundary analysis
How much testing is enough
When the cost to detect defects exceeds the potential damage caused by the defect
A test strategy is effective if:
It is likely to mitigate known risks
A test strategy contains two major components:
Risk and issues that need to be adddressed and phase where testing will be conducted
The basic test phrases are
Unit test, integration test, system test, user acceptance test.
Unit testing is
Performed by the developer and validates the structure of one of the program module or component
System testing is
Performed by the test team and validates functional requirements
The "V Model" is a life cycle approach that integrates
Verification and validation techniques
Reviews are conducted for all of the following reasons except:
Evaluate individual performance

Reasons are:
Reduce time to market
To detect defects in the phase where it was introduced into the product
knowledge transfer
Test planning
Improves communication
All of the following are advantages of a structured test plan expect:
Enables you to test on any platform and operating environment

advantages of structured test plan:Identifies what will and will not be tested
Enables one to allocate test resources
Provides a means to report an objective test status
Recovering lost or corrupted data due to a system failure is an example of which cost of quality category
Failure cost
A defect is
A variance for requirements for a variance from customer expectation
True or False
The "fit for use" definition of quality is a producer's version of quality
False
True or False
one of the fallacies in the software development world is that you can "test" quality into the product
True.. OHHHHHH SOOOOO VERYYYYY TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
True or False
Quality Assurance is primarily defect detection
False
True or False
Prevention costs are not part of the "cost of quality"
False
True or False
The "P: in the PDCA cycle stands for PREVENT
False
"P" stands for Plan
True or False
The policy states the "how" component of a process
False
Policy states the WHY
True or False
The actual source code is written in the design phase of the SDLC
False
Construction phase
The waterfall model is one of the most flexible development models
False
True or False
Risk is defined as the probability that an unfavorable event will occur that results in loss
True
True or False
Functional tests are tests
that validate system requirements and business scenarios
True
True or False
White-Box testing is a functional testing technique
False
White box testing is structural
True or False
Error guessing is a test technique used to validate error checking routines
False
True or False
A test charter is management's definition of testing
True
True or False
You can never test a program too much
False
True or False
User acceptance Testing validates that the system is "fit for use"
True
True or False
The "V" Model divides the development and test processes into two stages, the specification stage and the test stage
True
True or False
Integration tests validate the design
True
True or False
Static testing is executing actual code
False
True or False
An Inspection is an informal review technique
False
True or False
The project plan is the input into the test plan process
True
True or False
Both dynamic and static testing is performed during the requirement phase.
False
True or False
The primary goal of defect management is to prevent defects
True
True or False
Each column or row in a decision table represents an individual test case
True
True or False
Stress testing tests the relationship between the developers and the test team
False
True or False
Usability is marginally critical for any web application that is seen directly by customers
False
