45 Common Software Testing Interview Questions (Part 2)


16. What do you need to prepare an acceptance plan?

Example answer: 

I often prepare the acceptance document using these inputs:

  • Requirement document specifying client requirements
  • Additional from clients, including discussions, emails, etc.
  • Project plan prepared by the PM


17. Can you tell me what is test coverage?

Example answer:

Test coverage assists to measure the amount of testing carried out by a set of tests. Test coverage can be used in both functional and non-functional testing.


18. What are types of coverage techniques?

Example answer:

There are 3 major types of coverage techniques:


  • Statement coverage ensuring that each line of source code has been executed and tested.
  • Decision coverage ensuring that every decision (true/false) in the source code has been executed and tested.
  • Path coverage ensuring that all possible routes through a given part of the code are executed and tested.


19. What is load testing?

Example answer:

Load testing validates how the system interacts with the expected user load. It may include the number of users on the system, or the resources accessing the database.


20. What is stress testing?

Example answer:

Stress testing validates how the system interacts with stress. This kind of testing can help to identify the upper limit and make changes/ modifications to raise the limit.


21. What should be included in test scenarios?

Example answer:

  • The module or component being tested, such as login credentials, contact forms or admin functions
  • Scenario ID
  • Description of the scenario
  • The importance of the scenario


22. What are differences between static and dynamic testing?

Example answer:

  • Static testing aims to improve the consistency and internal quality of work products. Dynamic testing mainly concentrates on externally visible behaviors of the software products.
  • Static testing helps to detect defects in work products directly and quickly. Dynamic testing identifies failures triggered by defects when the software is run in real time.
  • Compared with dynamic testing it is easier and cheaper to find and fix defects with static testing.


23. What should be included in the work product review process?

Example answer:

A work product review process contains 5 main phases:

  • Planning
  • Initiate review
  • Individual review
  • Issue analysis
  • Fixing and reporting
