ManualTEST: Improving Collection of Manual Test Execution Data in Empirical Studies

Eduardo AranhaPaulo Borba

Manual test execution can represent a significant part of the software testing effort. For this reason, new technologies are being proposed and evaluated through empirical studies to help the planning of test execution teams and to reduce the cost of manual test execution. The validity of these studies strongly depends on the accuracy of the collected data, which can be affected by several problems during the execution of the studies. In this paper, we present ManualTEST, a tool developed to improve the accuracy of the collected data and provide information to locate and identify sources of problems occurred during the execution of these studies. The benefits of ManualTEST were confirmed by several studies run in two test sites of a major mobile phone manufacturer.
