ISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level-Test Automation Engineering Questions and Answers

Question 1

You have been asked to automate a set of functional tests at system Test level via the CLI of the SUT for the first release of a software system. The automated tests will be delivered to the learn in change of maintenance testing, who will use them for part of the regression testing. They have the following requirements.

1. The automated tests must be as fast and cheap to maintain as possible

2. The cost of adding new automated tests must be as low as possible

3. The automated tests musthave a high level of independence from the tool itself

Which of the following scripting techniques would be MOST suitable?

Options:

A.

Data-driven scripting

B.

Keyword-driven scripting

C.

Linear scripting

D.

Structure scripting

Question 2

Consider a TAS that exclusively uses the APIs of a SUT. To make this work, significant changes have been required to the SUT by adding a set of dedicated test interfaces to the APIs. All the automated tests will use these test interfaces when interacting with the SUT. Assume that you are currently verifying the correctness of the automated test environment and test tool setup.

Which of the following would you expect to be the MOST specific risk associated with this scenario?

Options:

A.

The connectivityfrom the TAS to the dedicated test interfaces will not work

B.

The process of configuring the TAS will be error-phone due to manual intervention

C.

The automated test cases will not contain the expected result

D.

False alarms, that are unlikely to occur inthe real world, will be observed during testing

Question 3

Youare using a gTAA to create a TAS for a project. The TAS is aimed specifically at automating a suit of existing manual test cases for standalone desktop applications. All the interfaces between the TAS and SUT will be from the CUI of the application.

Whichof the following layers of the gTAA should you focus on for the TAS?

Options:

A.

The test Generation layer

B.

The Test Definition layer

C.

The Test Adaption layer

D.

The Test Execution layer

Question 4

Consider A TAS for testing a desktop application via its GUI. All the test cases of the automated test suite contain the same identical sequences of steps at the beginning (to create the necessary objects when doing a preliminary configuration of the testenvironment and at the end (to remove everything created –specifically for the test itself during the preliminary configuration of the test environment). All automated test cases use the same set of assertion functions from a shared library, for verifyingthe values in the GUI fields ( e.g text boxes).

What is the BEST recommendation for improving the TAS?

Options:

A.

Implementing keywords with higher level of granularity

B.

Improving the architecture of the application in order to improve its testability

C.

Adopting a set of standard verification methods for use by all automated tests

D.

Implementing standard setup and teardown functions at test case level

Question 5

Consider the following layers of the gTAA structure:

a. Test generation layer

b. Test definition layer

c. Test execution layer

d. Test execution layer

Consider the following capabilities associated with these layers.

Acquire all thenecessary resources before each test and release all after run, in order to avoid interdependences between test

Allow the automated test scripts on an abstract level to interact with components, configurations and interfaces of the SUT.

Design test directives that allow configuring the algorithms used to automatically produce the test cases a given model of the SUT.

Allow the definition and implementation of test cases and data by means of templates and/or guidelines.

Which of the following BEST matches each layer with the appropriate capability?

Options:

A.

a-3, b-4, c-1, d-2

B.

a-4, b-3, c-1, d-2

C.

a-4, b-3, c-2, d-1

D.

a-3, b-4, c-2, d-1

Question 6

Consider a TAS that uses a keyword-driven framework. The SUT is a web application and there is a large set of keywords available for writing the automated tests that relate to highly specific user actions linked directly to the GUI of the SUT. The automated test written with the keywords are statically analyzed by a custom tool which highlight’s repeated instances of identical sequence of keywords. The waiting mechanism implemented by the TAS for a webpage load is based on a synchronous sampling within a given timeout. The TAS allows checking a webpage load every seconds until a timeout value

Options:

A.

Changing thescripting approach to data-driven scripting

B.

Implementing keywords with a higher level of granularity

C.

Changing the wait mechanism to explicit hard-coded waits

D.

Establishing an error recovery process for TAS and SUT
