Testing Independence – ISTQB

Testing Independence

Developers are least independent, whereas outsourced testing companies are most independent, because they don’t take defects as criticism.

Several levels of independence can be defined as shown below:

  • Tests designed by the person(s) who wrote the software under test
  • Tests designed by another person(s) within the development team
  • Tests designed by a person(s) from a different organisational group
    (i.e.: an independent test team) or test specialists (i.e.: usability or performance testers)
  • Tests designed by a person(s) from a different organisation or company
    (i.e.: outsourcing or certification by an external body)
