Quality Assessment

After you have successfully encouraged a culture that values quality among members of the development and QA teams, you can assess the efforts toward that. A quality assurance assessment requires that you examine your teams and the tools, processes, practices, and measures they use to perform their work. Take note of the following specifics:

QA Team

Assess the background, skill, and organization of members of the QA team.

QA Tools and Environment

Assess tools used to measure and track software quality, especially a defect and enhancement tracking program. Additional tools can assist with testing automation.

QA Activities and Processes

Assess the activities and processes that describe the efforts the teams make to ensure quality.
