Software Testing Exercises – New Platform to Test Your Testing Skills and Share Practical Ideas

Software Testing Exercises + Contest: Read on to know more.

*Update 2: Link to our sample answers page added. Also, winners' names announced at the end of this post.
*Update 1: just don't read other reader's answers in comments before posting yours :)

With excellent response to the STH posts as always, we have decided to fill this place with more fun and help.

No matter, who you are – a senior quality manager or a fresher who has just joined the software testing industry, everyone wants (or I would say, loves) to work on exercises, to keep our brain working.

With that, if you get to communicate with fellow testers and if you get a platform to share ideas too, would there be anything greater than that?

Software Testing Exercises

Saying that we are announcing the brand new sub-section of STH – Software Testing Exercises. The purpose of this subsection is to provide our readers with an opportunity to test their analysis capabilities and thinking power.

We are planning to publish this kind of post once in a month to keep your brain active. I am sure you all will enjoy these exercises.

OK, I will not take long to introduce you to your first Software Testing exercise.

So, here is the first-ever kind of Software Testing Exercise. Grab a cup of coffee and get ready to participate, communicate and share. You need to leave your answers in a comment box and we will store them for future references for anyone.

Contest: To make this exercise even more exciting, we are giving away 3 copies of our premium eBook “Software Testing Career Package” FREE for those who will complete all exercises with maximum correct answers. :)

Exercise #1: Finding Defects

As a software tester, what do you do? Of course, testing the software, you would say………Okay, can you find out defects on the page shown below?

testing Exercise 1

Here is how you can judge yourself:

If you find:
0 – 4 defects => Poor
5 – 6 defects => Average
7 – 8 defects => Good
9 – 10 defects => Excellent
10+ defects => Best tester!

(Mind well, you are the judge and you need to count on valid defects)

Here is one example of a defect as a hint:

– Confirm password field does not show content in encrypted mode.

List all the other in the comments below.

Exercise #2: Writing Test Scenarios

We do not only test, but we also develop test scenarios too. There is a real-life scenario and you need to write test ideas for the same.

Again, we do not want a step-by-step procedure; we want ideas with a brief description.

Write test ideas for this Scenario: You are at the grocery store’s checkout counter. You have bought five items (x, y, z, a, and b). You make payment and move to the EXIT door.

Example Test ideas as a hint:

  1. If the checkout counter is humanless, scan all the five items, scan your card and make payment.
  2. The scanners should scan proper relevant information.

List all possible test scenarios in the comments below. You can also refer to this sample web application test scenarios article as well.

Exercise #3: Defect Reporting

As a tester, the best part of the job is to report defects. We would like to know how you would report the following defect (you can decide upon the fields you want to include while reporting the defect in the best way).

Write a detailed defect report for this sample defect: After logging into Gmail, it navigates to

No hint here. :) Just write a good and complete defect report. If you need help check this post for a sample defect report and this post on how to write a good defect report.

Exercise #4: Providing Suggestions

Providing suggestions to improve quality or user experience is the extension of a Software Testing job. So why not try that? Can you tell us how user experience can be improved for the following sign-in page?

testing Exercise 2

Here is an example suggestion as a hint:

– Rather than asking the customer to select whether he is a new customer, the system should check the status of the customer based on the e-mail address or User ID he had provided.

Over to you:

I think that is it for the day. We are waiting for your answers and responses to our new little venture.

Your turn: Just put your answers for each exercise in the comments below.

  11. Exercise #1: Finding Defects
    These defects are written with the assumption that user clicked “Register” button after providing the values (as shown in the screenshot)
    The title of the form is not correctly displayed.
    No consistency in the background color of the title bar
    User should be notified about the mandatory fields (by providing an asterisk (*) against the mandatory fields)
    Validation messages are not proper – For example: “Enter User ID” shown against the “Choose User ID” field, should be displayed only if the user skips this field. But, here, some value is entered in the field. So, if some rules exist for choosing the “User ID”, and the entered value doesn’t adhere to those rules, then that should be displayed as a validation message, instead of the message shown. Same is the case with “Password” field
    The value entered in the “Confirm Password” field should be in encrypted form
    The validation message provided when user skipped the Email field should be changed to “Email Verification Required. Your email address will not be published”
    Captcha is not clearly visible to the user
    Full stop after the validation message provided for captcha should be avoided
    The caption provided for the Register button should start with “R” (caps)
    The labels used in the form should be more user-friendly (e.g. Select Country)

    Exercise #2: Writing Test Scenarios
    Scenario for self-checkout (payment by cash)

(5) scan its bar code (Make sure that the item is scanned – listen for a beep sound) ? (6) Remove the scanned item from the scale and place it onto the bagging platform ? (7) Take the next item from the cart and repeat steps 5 & 6 ? (8) Perform step 7 for the remaining items in the cart ? (9) Press the “Finish Checkout” button ? (10) Pay the cash by inserting the coins and paper money in appropriate slots ? (12) Take the receipt along with your change (if any)

    Exercise #3: Defect Reporting

    Additional Information:
    Environment :

    Exercise #4: Providing suggestions
    The interface could be a little more attractive (for example: The area where the text “Sign In” is displayed, could use a different back ground color than the rest of the area.)
    Instead of “What is your email address”, the label could be changed to “Email address”. Also, “My e-mail address is” could be removed. Just a label “Email address” and a text box (for entering the email) would be enough
    The “Do you have password” section can be taken out. Instead it would be better to provide a label “Password:” and a text box for entering the password
    The link “Forgotten your password?” can be changed to “Forgot password?” This can be placed just below the text box for entering the password
    A check box “keep me signed in” can be provided
    The caption of the button could be changed from “Sign in using our secure server” to “Sign In”
    The labels “Email Address” & “Password” should be properly aligned to the left

    9. Refresh option for verification number should be provided for session time out and non-readable cases.

    10. Background color around register button is not uniform
    11. The ‘country’ dropdown is prefilled with India, it should either be blank or display Select
    12. No fields are marked mandatory
    13. Instruction provided for email field is displayed in red color which gives an impression of error message
    14. Spacing between “Choose User Id” and “Password” is fields is more than rest of the fields on page. It makes the page look less neat

    Exercise #4: Providing suggestions
    1.Email address should be validate and it should check the database whether it is registered email or not.

    a. If it is registered email-id then it should automatically switch to password field.
    b. If it is Not registered e-mail then switch to No,Iam a New customer.and it should leads to sign up page.

    2.we can remove the question tags such as what is your e-mail address?,Do you have password?(since it is sign in page)

    3.We can have the place holder’s or water mark instead of labels.

    4.Better We can have text above the sign in button like(sign in using our secure server).

  21. ex 4
    we can make it more user-friendly amd qualitative by:

    instead of asking ‘do you have email id’ just put the ’email address’ in label and in the text box we can put watermark text of valid email structure ( so it look tidier and also easy for user guidance.
    For password,instead of asking to the user, there should written just ‘password’ and a guidance or hint can be put there at right hand side of textbox like (password should be 8 character long etc)..
    then at after sign in button, there also should keep ‘New User?’ and after that put ‘Register’ link, so that if user is new he can click on register link rather than that confusing question ‘do you have pwd or not?’ instead system should check status of customer based on e-mail address he had provided.

    Fourth Ans

    1 No need to write”what is your e-mail address?”.
    2 It has to be E-mail instead of “My e-mail address is”
    3 After the E-mail field there should be password field. No need to ask “Do you have password?”
    4 Instead of writing “Sign in using our secure server” it shoud be “Sign in”
    5 After the “Sign in” button there should be New User and Forget password options.
    6 Color combination is not correct.

  25. Contest 1.

    1. Look and Feel is not good because the Title “New Registration” is not displayed correct.

    2.Prioritisation of text fields is not correct as email then password and confirm password text fields should be there.

    3.No requirement for Enter password and Enter user-ID label.

    4.No Requirement of filled .

    5. Verification Number itself not visible properly .

    6.Instead of using label for Password and choose user-id .. there should be error message displayed when wrong password entered and user id is not filled.

    7.The name of button register should be with ‘r’ caps.

    8.Size of button ssould not be this much small and same for all Labels.

    9.There should be cancel button , back button options , which are not present here.

    10. There should be more text field for gathering the information .. As this is the Registration page .

    11.On the same page there should be a link for terms and conditions so that before registration we can come to know about terms and conditions.

    12. The space between User id and password and bettwen rest all fields is unequal . The look and feel should be best as many end users start usnig apps for this one reason.

    13.The place rewarded to Register button is also not correct it should be in last not in left right side and should be very clear.

    14. As one will click on county dropdown list, dropdown list will cover othe option that is again not a correct thi g . Country option should be placed on side so that it do not give a odd look as well as do not cover other option.

    15. In Country Dropdown list -select country- should always be displayed as default value not India.


  26. So here’s my input for exercise #1:

    1. The header text is incorrectly written
    2. The header colour is displaced
    3. “choose user ID” and “Enter password” strings to the right of the input boxes are redundant
    4. The encrypted password input text is displaced from input field
    5. Confirm password input text is not encrypted

    7. Inconsistency between “Country” dropdown menu horizontal alignment with “Country” string and the other user text input fields adn their respective description strings
    8. “Please enter verification number exactly as shown in left.” string is incomplete and incorrectly written
    9. Verification number input field contains an input by default
    10. Bad display of register button label text

    This could also be an issue but I chose not to mention it per-se as filtered user credential input could be company proprietary, but:
    11. User id string can only contain letters(upper and lower case, and numbers) no special characters.

    AGAIN, this could or could not be an issue, depending on company policy regarding user accounts. Please reply!

    17. “Requires Verification. Will not be published” has spelling mistakes.

    18. “Requires Verification.Will not be published” and “Please enter the verification number exactly as shown in left” should be displayed as tool tip and labels should be displayed in same format.
