Types of Testing Metrics


In this tutorial, we will explore the different types of testing metrics. A testing metric is a measurement that helps to determine specific characteristics of the software testing procedure. It enables us to gauge the testing process’s effectiveness, efficiency, progress, and quality.

Type of  Testing Metrics

Software testing metrics are broadly classified into the following types:

Base Metrics

Base metrics are those obtained from raw data directly from testing activities without further computation. The test engineers gather these metrics through the testing effort. Base metrics is used to provide project status and evaluations/feedback.

Some examples of base metrics are as follows:

Derived Metrics

Derived metrics are those measurements in software testing that are not directly measurable but are computed using two or more base metrics. Derived metrics convert base metrics data into more helpful information.

Some examples of derived metrics are as follows:
