Test plan sample: SoftwareTesting and Quality assurance Templates

Test plan is in high demand. Ya it should be! Test plan reflects your entire project testing schedule and approach. This article is in response to those who have demanded sample test plan.

In my previous article I have outlined Test plan Index. In this article I will elaborate that index to what each point mean to do. So this Test plan will include the purpose of test plan i. e to prescribe the scope, approach, resources, and schedule of the testing activities. To identify the items being tested, the features to be tested, the testing tasks to be performed, the personnel responsible for each task, and the risks associated with this plan.

Find what actually you need to include in each index point.

I have included link to download PDF format of this test plan template at the end of this post.

2.1 Objectives
Describe the objectives supported by the Master Test Plan, eg., defining tasks and responsibilities, vehicle for communication, document to be used as a service level agreement, etc.

2.2 Tasks
List all tasks identified by this Test Plan, i.e., testing, post-testing, problem reporting, etc.

This section describes what is being tested, such as all the functions of a specific product, its existing interfaces, integration of all functions.

List here how you will accomplish the items that you have listed in the “Scope” section. For example, if you have mentioned that you will be testing the existing interfaces, what would be the procedures you would follow to notify the key people to represent their respective areas, as well as allotting time in their schedule for assisting you in accomplishing your activity?


Describe the overall approach to testing. For each major group of features or feature combinations, specify the approach which will ensure that these feature groups are adequately tested. Specify the major activities, techniques, and tools which are used to test the designated groups of features.

The approach should be described in sufficient detail to permit identification of the major testing tasks and estimation of the time required to do each one.

4.1 Unit Testing

Specify the minimum degree of comprehensiveness desired. Identify the techniques which will be used to judge the comprehensiveness of the testing effort (for example, determining which statements have been executed at least once). Specify any additional completion criteria (for example, error frequency). The techniques to be used to trace requirements should be specified.

List the names of individuals/departments who would be responsible for Unit Testing.

Describe how unit testing will be conducted. Who will write the test scripts for the unit testing, what would be the sequence of events of Unit Testing and how will the testing activity take place?

4.2 System and Integration Testing

List what is your understanding of System and Integration Testing for your project.

Who will be conducting System and Integration Testing on your project? List the individuals that will be responsible for this activity.

Describe how System & Integration testing will be conducted. Who will write the test scripts for the unit testing, what would be sequence of events of System & Integration Testing, and how will the testing activity take place?

Who will be responsible for User Acceptance Testing? List the individuals’ names and responsibility.

Describe how the User Acceptance testing will be conducted. Who will write the test scripts for the testing, what would be sequence of events of User Acceptance Testing, and how will the testing activity take place?

4.5 Batch Testing

4.6 Automated Regression Testing

Regression testing is the selective retesting of a system or component to verify that modifications have not caused unintended effects and that the system or component still works as specified in the requirements.


4.7 Beta Testing



6.1 Main Frame
Specify both the necessary and desired properties of the test environment. The specification should contain the physical characteristics of the facilities, including the hardware, the communications and system software, the mode of usage (for example, stand-alone), and any other software or supplies needed to support the test. Also specify the level of security which must be provided for the test facility, system software, and proprietary components such as software, data, and hardware.

Identify special test tools needed. Identify any other testing needs (for example, publications or office space). Identify the source of all needs which are not currently available to your group.

6.2 Workstation

Include test milestones identified in the Software Project Schedule as well as all item transmittal events.

Define any additional test milestones needed. Estimate the time required to do each testing task. Specify the schedule for each testing task and test milestone. For each testing resource (that is, facilities, tools, and staff), specify its periods of use.


Problem Reporting
Document the procedures to follow when an incident is encountered during the testing process. If a standard form is going to be used, attach a blank copy as an “Appendix” to the Test Plan. In the event you are using an automated incident logging system, write those procedures in this section.

Change Requests
Document the process of modifications to the software. Identify who will sign off on the changes and what would be the criteria for including the changes to the current product. If the changes will affect existing programs, these modules need to be identified.


Identify all software features and combinations of software features that will be tested.


Identify all features and significant combinations of features which will not be tested and the reasons.


Specify the staff members who are involved in the test project and what their roles are going to be (for example, Mary Brown (User) compile Test Cases for Acceptance Testing). Identify groups responsible for managing, designing, preparing, executing, and resolving the test activities as well as related issues. Also identify groups responsible for providing the test environment. These groups may include developers, testers, operations staff, testing services, etc.


Major Deliverables
Identify the deliverable documents. You can list the following documents:
– Test Plan
– Test Cases
– Test Incident Reports
– Test Summary Reports


Department/Business Area Bus. Manager Tester(s)


Identify significant constraints on testing, such as test-item availability, testing-resource availability, and deadlines.


Identify the high-risk assumptions of the test plan. Specify contingency plans for each (for example, delay in delivery of test items might require increased night shift scheduling to meet the delivery date).

#1 Sameer Mandve

I was in one of group those demanded sample Test Plan. so thanks a lot for agin.

#2 manjunath

I gain idea about the basic test plan requirements. can you please provide me any basic application or system test plan example which is implemented in software companies, so that we get clear idea about the test plan ?

i found the test plan which is very easy and understandable…
can you please provide me bug tracking report format , so that i get how to submit bug to developer

#5 anjana

i am planning to do software testing course from long back.but i am still in confusion which institute will be the best in bangalore. and which institute is giving placement assistance? can i do both manual and automation? what is the difference? pls let me know which will not involve programming. i dont want to get into programming.pls let me know which will suit me. or shall i concentrate only in one course.either manual or automation. thanks.

#6 sricharan

what is test strategy,test methodology, automation test plan?

#7 reddy

what is tracesability matrix?Give me template for this?

#8 Ahmed Mahmood

i need some traing abt automated testing

#9 Vijay

@ manjunath – Thanks for making me to write article on Bug life cycle (http://www.softwaretestinghelp.com/bug-life-cycle/) This is actually base for my next article “Writing a good bug report”. I will write it soon.

@ anjana – If you don’t want to go for Programming language then its useless to think about Automation testing. So you have only one option of Manual testing which may restrict your career.

@ sricharan – Diff. In short- Test strategy describes the overall testing approach i.e how to test? Test strategy comes under test plan.
Test plan defines Scope, approach and what to test?

@ reddy – traceability matrix is used to map the user requirements with the deliverables. We can use traceability matrix for mapping user level requirements to functional requirements and also for verifying system specifications. You can use a simple excel sheet having two columns of requirement and traceability to maintain traceability matrix.

#10 Ahmed Mahmood

Kindly gimme some help documents through whichi start automation testing, as i have good backgroung of programming languages

1)is there any format we need to follow to prepare TRM
2) how do we create Test beds for automating test cases?

#19 Venky

Hi Kavitha,

Static Testing: Testing the application without running the application. Nothing but testing the Documents like Business Requirement Specification, Functional Specifications and other testing documents whether the mentioned requirements and functionalities are complete or not. Ex: Testing the documents Test Case document for checking whether it covers the full functional flow of the applications or not.

Dynamic Testing: Testing the application by running it currently. Ex: Testing the applications whether it meets all the functionalities mentioned in the Functional Specifications by running the Test Cases which are generated against the Requirements of the client.

#20 kavitha

Hi Venky,
thank you for your reply. . .

Same time, can u give a weblink to take a model online exams in software testing.

#35 Ashish

Thanks Vijay,
It was a lot of help in the Test plan topic.
Good work, keep it up.


#36 Nagesh

Hi Vijay,
I like the web-site very much. It is very useful.
What I understand is that different interpretations are given by different professional :
E.g :
Test Strategy & Test Plan

Test Strategy may be a higher level document where in it may contain various Test Plans (Strategy may include plans for integration testing, system testing, user acceptance testing, etc)

E.g : Static Testing

When I go through articles under static testing the entire life cycle activities such as various reviews, audits, etc are covered.

I get confused. Is there any standard where in specific definitions are given so as remove ambiguity.

Can you please define a role of QA in a Software Testing Service Orgn?

Thank you for your immence service. Like to interact more.

I need to knw the difference between them also..

#39 santosh


Test Plan : It contains all (like Introduction, scope, s/w req. h/w req, ,…etc…).
But it is not necessary that all should be followed in TEST STRATEGY for any of the new project, where we can modify according to the Client or Project requirements.

TESTPLAN: It is the set of rules made for the company
TEST STRATEGY:By Modifying the testplan according to the Client, TEST STRATEGY comes into picture, here we may not follow all the rules. If you have still any doubts oe related to Manual testing., you can contact me @santoshpalvai@yahoo.com..

Hope so, it cleared ur doubt..

#50 Arun Vijayaraghavan

Test Plan and Test strategy documents are extremely important in any project. Both documents are usually frozen at the beginning of the test engagement, but do under constant changes and revisions. We can call both documents to be live documents.

The basic difference between the two is as below:

Test plan is a document that contains list of activities that would be a part of testing the application (AUT). A test plan contains the following details:

1.Details on the Environment
2.Details on the application and Scope of Testing
3.Different phases of testing involved in the test project:
i. Unit Testing – Responsibility & Exit criteria
ii. System Testing – Responsibility & Exit criteria
iii. Integration testing – Responsibility & Exit criteria
iv. UAT / Business User Testing – Responsibility & Exit criteria
4. Environment Cycle plan & Batch calendar plan
5. Resource Requirement across each phases of testing
6. Test Deliverables
7. Test team skills, requirements, roles & responsibilities.
8. Details on resource ramp up and ramp down
9. Details of the availability of hardware and support software requirement.
10. Details on training needs
11. Risks and mitigation
12. Contingency plan

Test Strategy – Test Strategy is a document that talks about how the testing is to be carried out across each phase. Take for example, in Unit testing phase test strategy would define entry and exit criteria along with ways and means of how the module would be unit tested. Test Strategy would vary from phases to phase since same strategy cannot be followed for two phases keeping in mind no two phases of testing are similar.

So, eventually Test Plan is a parent document the contain test strategy as a child document.

The perception of test plan and test strategy would vary from organization to organization and even project to project.


#51 Nagaraju

Can any one explain about QTP Frame work?

#52 CharlieW

Hi Deepesh
At my company we have worked with various customers, some of whom use traceability matrices, and I don’t think there is any standard format. Some populate tables by hand in MS Word specifications containing requirement tags for example.
We prefer to auto-generate a requirements traceability matrix using an in-house tool (www.pixref.com), and there are other tools on the market. Our tool trawls through the specification and implementation files searching for requirement tags, and automatically lists which match and which do not.

#71 keerthi

hi..this site is very useful..

#72 Sinde sugatri

This is good site about testplan and testing stratergy.

#73 Vishal

I want to know the following things regarding Test Plan.

1. When preparation of test plan start?
2. How the resource, deadline gets estimated? Is there any sceintific approach or any technique used for estimation of all this things?

Plaes reply on this as I want to understand the testplan in detail.

Thanks in advance.


#74 siva

hi vishal

Here are the answers for your questions

1)Test plan should be started immediately after the requirements are available. It should be flexible enough so that if the requirements gets changed, then the plan should also be changed accordingly
2)a)Scheduling is based on the project deadlines.
b)Resource estimation is based on the project size. In general QA resources are half the development team size. Also you need to prepare Staffing matrix which can give you idea of how many resources are required for a particular module. For example, if there are 3 modules in a project then you can hire 3 persons, one for each module. Similarly you can also categorize by type of testing.

#77 anandhan

any one tell me.

1) What is diff b/n unit testing and white box testing(WBT) and it have any related link and WB tester can test the unit testing and voice versa?.

2)how can test acceptance testing without alpha and beta testing(that is end user)

#78 Viswa

Hi Anadhan,

1. Unit testing is usually done by developers where they will be testing every function point/unit which they are developing before it is being integrated to other application. White box testing can be conducted by a developer or a tester, white box testing is conducted with the motive of identifying/pointing a defect/bug exactly where inside the code.

2. Alpha testing is usually called first phase of testing, where it will be tested within the project team like unit testing, FVT (functional verification testing), system testing. Beta testing is the one executed along with the end user, usually called User Acceptance Testing or Certification testing. It cannot be executed without the end user.

#96 Viswanathan D

Hi Satya, Go through requirements and understand the changes in the application. Download a simple test plan template and put your scope and test strategy in that test plan. For preparing test cases, understand the flow of the application and bring in to your imagination for different kind scenarios how application works, and start your test cases putting those scenarios in to as test cases. Let us know any one of here if you need any clarification. Writing test case is an art, build that skill within you and I am sure you will enjoy writing test cases.
Viswanathan D

#97 Viswanathan D

Hi Divya,

When you come across a defect and if it does not have a test case, then you need to update your test case accordingly through following change test case process. A defect need to have test cases, please tell this answer in your next interview.

#100 balasubramanian

Why we should prepare system & integration test plan

#101 balasubramanian

Can anyone just guide me on the above comment

#102 Viswanathan D

“why we should prepare system & integration test plan?”

First, System test plan is prepared to make our self ready to prepare the entire system which is being developed from the scratch. System test plan is prepared only if the application or product is completely new. And the application or product need to undergo all type of testing like Functional, Performance, Load, Certification, UAT etc.
Second, Integration test plan is prepared if a product or application being developed by several team or several developers and if one complete module output is going to be as a input for another module, then this Integration Test Plan will be useful to plan accordingly. So when two systems being integrated the possibilities of issues are like software compatibility, input variable map etc. So these needs to be tested completed when its integrated. Hope its clear now.

D. Viswanathan

#103 balasubramanian.k

Thanks for guiding me. My another query is under which circumstances do we prepare unit ,integration & system test plan

#104 balasubramanian

Any views on the above comment ?

#105 D. Viswanathan

“Unit Testing”

Unit Testing is usually done by developers, they don’t prepare exact test plan for Unit Testing. They will write high level test cases where the scope of the testing will be limited to within their module or functionality undergone changes. Unit Testing/White Box Testing is also done by experienced Test Engineers who has knowledge on coding in the respective platform. Unit Testing executed by testers are mostly to show the defect where exactly in the code it is affected.

I want to know how to get a job in s/w testing. I have 5+ years of s/w deveopment experience and after that I took a 6 year break from IT to handle family responsibilities. Now I want to comeback in IT field but not in the development. I feel testing/quality area would be little less consuming than mainstream development. Correct me if I am wrong.
Can anybody send me details about testing job, some reading material and courses which can help getting a job in today’s demanding job mkt.

#125 rinku

can any one told me about the testing methodology.??

#126 pallavi patil

can any one told me about the severity & priority?

#127 Janki

@ Pallavi

Both severity and priority are related with bug.
Severity shows “How sever Bug is” (i.e. if there is any bug found in any functionality then how it is impacting on system)
Priority shows “Urgency of fixing the bug” (i.e. Seeting the priority for solving the bug, if any bug is more sever then it should be fix first.)
There are levels of severity and Priority.
Severity: Catastrophic, Sever, Medium, Low
Priority: Blocker, High, Medium, Low

#131 soulami

Is it possible to have unit,integration and system all the three in the same document?

#132 soulami

What do you think are the advantages/disadvantages of having separate unit,
integration, and system test plans as opposed to an inclusive test plan that contains
all three in the same document?
