Risk Based Testing In Software Testing

By | June 6, 2021

Why do we use risk based testing in Agile?

  • As the application gets bigger, the number of test cases to be executed gets increased thereby risk testing is needed to cut short many other testing.
  • Limited resource capacity. To execute each and every test, in every sprint is not possible hence we require risk based testing.

Risk based testing prioritize on tests based on;

  • Importance of functions and risk of failure. Each test is analysed based on its functions, on how important the function is and the chances of risk in case the test is omitted.
  • Likelihood of failure of important features. The tests are prioritized based on how important a particular feature is.
