Software Testing Metrics Examples

Examples of Common QA Metrics


Software testers and QA teams can't be expected to fulfill shorter release timelines with lower budgets if they aren't effectively leveraging testing metrics. Properly tracking and applying this data will prevent embarrassing and costly product releases from occurring due to increased oversight abilities during the development process. One of the most common questions that arises, though, is "what am I supposed to track?"

One of the most common and crucial to metrics to track at the project-level are defect open and close rates. The number of defects that may be encountered during a project's run can make them difficult to keep tabs on, and if team members aren't actively keeping tabs on them, it's likely certain defects will slip through the cracks and appear in the final release.
