Create test cases

A test case is a set of actions performed on a system to determine if it satisfies software requirements and functions correctly. The purpose of a test case is to determine if different features within a system are performing as expected and to confirm that the system satisfies all related standards, guidelines and customer requirements. The process of writing a test case can also help reveal errors or defects within the system.


test cases, testing software, steps, function

Test cases define what must be done to test a system, including the steps executed in the system, the input data values that are entered into the system and the results that are expected throughout test case execution. Using test cases allows developers and testers to discover errors that may have occurred during development or defects that were missed during ad hoc tests.
