Are you a testing enthusiast who is keenly googling on the internet to learn about testing? Or, some of you might also have come to revise your basics. Well for the beginners there is nothing better than the basics to start with. Basics like the test cases, test cases execution, and so on. We are delighted that you’ve started to learn about testing and in this blog, we are going to see how to execute the test cases. A very simplified definition and explanation are provided for you below content. Let’s get into it without any late.

What is Test Case Execution?

In simple words, the test execution runs the tests to confirm the application’s behavior under testing based on the test cases or test scripts. We have already seen how to write test cases from here.

How to Conduct Test Execution?

In the test report, all the fields in test cases will be included, and an additional column, Actual Result, will appear. When all the steps are passed and met the test case’s expected result, the test case is passed. If any one of the steps is failed in the test cases, then the test case is failed. Bug needs to be posted for the failed test cases.

In general, a Test case execution report consists of the below components:

  • Test Case ID
  • Test Case Title
  • Description of the test case
  • Precondition
  • Test Steps
  • Expected Result
  • Actual Result

The simple test execution report will look like this below:
