User acceptance test standards

A user acceptance testing standard for application development (including templates for the creation of a user acceptance test plan) can be found here.

The contents of the document are:

1. Introduction
1.1 Audience
1.2 Purpose
1.3 Assumptions
1.4 Standard

2. User acceptance test standards
2.1 Overview
2.2 New System Test
2.3 Regression Test
2.4 Limited Testing
2.4.1 Form-Based Testing
2.4.2 Business Process Testing
2.4.3 Report Testing

3. Assessing the test types for a test plan
3.1 Overview
3.2 Assessing the Test Type Required

4. Creating a user acceptance test plan
4.1 Test Instructions
4.2 Form-Based Test Scripts
4.3 User Security Matrix
4.4 Business Process Test Scripts
4.5 Report Test Scripts
4.6 Defect Tracking Form
4.7 Defect Tracking Log

5. Conclusion

And the conclusion is:

"The test scripts created for a new system, for regression testing or for limited testing should be recycled throughout the application 's life. By editing existing test scripts the User Acceptance Test Planning process can save time and money, as well as maintain the test quality, as key requirement information will be re-used."
