Typical tester tasks may include:

  • Review and contribute to test plans

  • Analyze, review, and assess requirements, user stories and acceptance criteria, specifications, and models for testability (i.e., the test basis)

  • Identify and document test conditions, and capture traceability between test cases, test conditions, and the test basis

  • Design, set up, and verify test environment(s), often coordinating with system administration and network management

  • Design and implement test cases and test procedures

  • Prepare and acquire test data

  • Create the detailed test execution schedule

  • Execute tests, evaluate the results, and document deviations from expected results

  • Use appropriate tools to facilitate the test process

  • Automate tests as needed (may be supported by a developer or a test automation expert)

  • Evaluate non-functional characteristics such as performance efficiency, reliability, usability, security, compatibility, and portability

  • Review tests developed by others

      People who work on test analysis, test design, specific test types, or test automation may be specialists in these roles. Depending on the risks related to the product and the project, and the software development lifecycle model selected, different people may take over the role of the tester at different test levels.

For example, at the component testing level and the component integration testing level, the role of a tester is often done by developers.

  • At the acceptance test level, the role of a tester is often done by business analysts, subject matter experts, and users.
  • At the system test level and the system integration test level, the role of a tester is often done by an independent test team.
  • At the operational acceptance test level, the role of a tester is often done by operations and/or systems administration staff.
