QA technical interview questions and answers
So you’ve got a QA Interview coming up, huh? Congratulations! Since you’re reading this post, I’m going to bet that you’re doing all the pre-interview prep: researching the company, getting your outfit dry-cleaned, and coming up with interview question answers. Great. We’ve got 10 popular QA interview questions and answers below to help you prepare.
There’s no way to know if these questions will be asked of course, but we’ve found that many QA Managers use at least one of these as their opening questions, testing your know-how before they launch into the more difficult ones.
1. Compare a test plan to a test case. What does each include?
The test plan is a document that describes a project’s testing plans. It includes everything from the testing scope, to approach and resources, as well as the schedule.
The test case gets more specific than a test plan. It describes, step-by-step, how to test the application. This document includes test steps, prerequisites, outputs, and test environment.
2. What is a software development life cycle?
The software development life cycle, also known as the SDLC, describes the process through which software is developed. There are slight differences in what different organizations call these specific steps, but they all start with development and end with application maintenance. The most popularly accepted steps are: requirement phase, the design phase, the coding phase, the testing phase, release, and maintenance.
3. What is positive testing? Negative testing? Compare the two.
When you test an application with the correct data, ensuring that everything works as it should with expected user behavior, you are performing a positive test. For example, if a password only allows numbers, you would only put numbers into this field with a positive test. If everything works as it should, your program has passed this particular positive test.autumn leaves of cityview cityview hotel holland mi cityview development cityview at riverwalk knoxville amherst at cityview apartments la quinta cityview fort worth cityview construction enclave at cityview fort worth cityview family physicians cityview grill the cityview hotel hong kong brookdale cityview cityview hospital chicago cityview care center nursing home cityview at soco holiday inn express cityview coventry at cityview apartment cityview terrace cityview minneapolis cityview trolley tours boston stops cityview condominium cityview apartments north kansas city cityview at southside 643 cityview ridge drive cityview estate cityview lanes fort worth cityview lic cityview calendar cityview soco cityview senior living cityview fayetteville nc 1701 cityview coventry at cityview fort worth tx cityview church minneapolis rosemont cityview marietta ga biscayne cityview apartment houston tx cityview condo chicago cityview hop on hop-off boston trolley map cityview rental cityview at soco austin cityview magazine des moines hotels near cityview lanes, fort worth cityview trolley tours key west cityview church pittsburgh cityview church elmhurst cityview commercial cityview st.louis hotels near cityview lanes fort worth rosemont cityview apartments marietta ga rosemont cityview reviews 1 cityview ln quincy ma 02169 cityview plaza cityview apartments dallas cityview towers the heights of cityview fort worth tx target cityview fort worth cityview lanes pro shop cityview hop-on hop-off boston trolley map cityview apartments athens hyatt cityview fort worth texas heights of cityview fort worth cityview flats duluth cityview properties coventry at cityview apartments cityview center enclave cityview alexan cityview apartments bayonne nj cityview lanes fort worth tx cityview rent pei wei cityview cityview condos chicago cityview west apartments cityview portal
