ZAPATA-JARAMILLO, Carlos Mario  e  TORRES-RICAURTE, Diana María. Test effort: A pre-conceptual-schema-based representation. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2014, vol.81, n.186, pp.132-137. ISSN 0012-7353.

Software testing is intended to guarantee the quality of software products. By executing a test suite, we can identify and correct defects in software products. Several methods are used to estimate the effort invested in testing. Each method comprises many concepts in determining the test effort. However, the graphical representations of such methods barely represent the different concepts involved. Specifically, some formulas are missing, avoiding the possibility of performing test effort calculations. In this paper, we identify the concepts involved in measuring the test effort. The concepts are obtained from a state-of-the-art review. Finally, we propose a representation for integrating such concepts by using pre-conceptual schemas, a kind of diagram devoted to the domain knowledge representation in a natural-like language.

Palavras-chave : testing; effort; factor; pre-conceptual schemas.
