TA-1.5.2 (K4) Analyze a project scenario to determine the most appropriate use for low level (concrete) and high level (logical) test cases Question: Scenario: Health Insurance The IT department of insurance company SecureLife has started a project IQ (Improved Quality) to implement a new health insurance application to make it possible to create online transactions for health insurance claims raised by employees and members of companies or associations having health insurance agreements. In the new application, it will be possible to make registration of all the information about the employees, their age, health conditions, etc. The project also has to fulfill the demands of the people doing insurance calculation, actuaries and the demands from public legislation. The project team for IQ have testers who are business users with lots of domain knowledge but without much formal test training. At the same time another project, HIPPOS (Health Insurance Product Public Order Sales), has been started by the marketing department of SecureLife with the purpose of launching a new Internet application that will allow potential buyers of health insurance to use a small calculator to calculate insurance premiums and possible bonus deductions based on age and different health parameters. This application will also allow individual customers to order Health Insurance Products online. The marketing tool and web page of project HIPPO will be developed and tested by SecureLife’s Agile development team, which has worked together for the last three years with the marketing department, developing marketing web applications. The Agile team consists of well-trained testers and developers. They have implemented test automation for configuration and regression testing and they have as part of their retrospectives built check lists of common defects and common security problems. As senior test analyst in SecureLife you have been asked to give input to the test strategy for the two projects, IQ and HIPPOS, regarding the level of detail and documentation required for test cases in the two projects. Which TWO of the following are the BEST options for this strategy? Justification: A. Incorrect: The scenario states that there are demands for traceability for project IQ, so this is not a good recommendation. Also, testers do not have much testing experience, so logical level is not good. B. Correct: This is a good recommendation because there are demands for traceability, and the testers do not have much test experience. C. Incorrect: There are no arguments that support the same detailed level of documentation for project HIPPOS; it is a marketing application they are building. D. Correct: this is the best recommendation for project HIPPOS, the team has experience in testing and in Agile development and the application is an online marketing application where experience-based testing at a logical level makes a lot of sense. E. Incorrect: Not a good recommendation, see argument for C. F. Incorrect: Not a good recommendation, Agile or not it is always best practice to analyze the concrete situation and the concrete requirements, project IQ still needs traceability.
