Test Plan – What is it?

Filed under: Test Plan — Triaged Tester @ 5:43 am

A test plan is a document, written prior to actual testing. A good test plan helps organize and manage the testing effort and contains a high level overview of the strategies for testing the feature or component, list of any specific tools required for testing and the test oracles to be used during testing the feature or component.


The benefits of having such a document are many, but I like it them for this:-

  • Test plans facilitate the technical tasks of testing.
  • Test plans improve communication about testing tasks and process.
  • Test plans provide structure for organizing, scheduling and managing the test project
