Acceptance tests

What is acceptance testing?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Acceptance testing is a level of software testing where a system is tested for acceptance.

The purpose of this test

The test is used to evaluate the conformance of the system to the business requirements and to assess whether the delivery is acceptable.

When are acceptance tests listed?

Acceptance testing is the fourth and final stage of software testing that is performed after system testing and before the system is made available for actual use.

Procedure of an acceptance test

  • Customer requirements are analyzed
  • Test scenarios will be created
  • Test plan will be defined
  • Test cases will be created
  • Acceptance test will be performed
  • Test results are recorded
  • Indicate whether customer requirements have been met

Who performs the acceptance tests?

  • Internal acceptance testing (also called alpha testing) is performed by members of the organization who developed the software but are not directly involved in the project. Typically, these are members of product management, sales, and/or customer support.
  • External acceptance testing is performed by individuals who are not employees of the organization that developed the software.
  • Customer acceptance testing is performed by the customers of the organization that developed the software. They asked the organization to develop the software.
  • User acceptance testing (also called beta testing) is performed by the end users of the software. They can be the customers themselves or, in B2B, the customers’ customers.
