Abstract: Software systems are continuously changed during maintenance and evolution. To ensure their quality, they have to be tested. But before starting testing a software system, the quality of the test cases themselves has to be evaluated. Due to the changes of the software system, they might have become obsolete or even erroneous. Furthermore, test cases created in an industrial setting are extensive and at some point of time, they might have become difficult to understand, unmanageable and inefficient. Therefore, by evaluating their quality, we can better understand, control and eventually improve the quality of test cases. We present the Test Case Quality Plan (TCQP) approach, which is based on the GQM (Goal-Question-Metric) approach and enables a systematic and efficient development of quality plans. They serve as a guideline for the quality evaluation of test cases, and emphasize the context of use of test cases as a major factor of influence for the whole quality evaluation. The TCQP approach has been applied and evaluated in an industrial case study. (More)
