More about manual testing

What is manual testing?

Manual testing is a software testing process in which test cases are executed manually without using automated tools. And the execution of test cases is from the end user's perspective to ensure that the application works properly as desired.

Manual testing is the most primitive technique of all testing methods that aim to detect issues, bugs, and defects in the software application. Along with the test case execution, test case reports are also generated manually.

What are the different types of manual testing?

There are six types of manual testing that software development companies use for application testing, such as:

Black Box testing

Black Box testing is used to examine the application functionality from the end-user perspective. This type of testing is named “Black Box" because the internal code structure of the software is not visible during the testing, and the testers are only aware of the inputs and expected outputs.

White Box testing

White Box testing is also known as transparent box testing or structural testing, which is used to test the internal structures of an application. It is performed by the developer before passing it to testers.

It aims to strengthen the security and improve the design and usability of the software. The fusion of Black Box and White Box testing is known as Grey Box testing.

Integration testing

Integration testing is the method of testing an application with two or more integrating components. It is used when the individual components have been unit-tested. It focuses on identifying problems with the interfaces and the interaction between them.

It uses two different methods: The bottom-up approach (that moves from the bottom module to the top module) and the Top-down approach (i.e., moving from the top module to the bottom).

System testing

As the name suggests, system testing means testing the system when all the components have been unit tested and integrated. It checks the whole application by comparing it to the original requirements.

System testing, also known as end-to-end testing, includes installability and recovery testing.

Unit testing

Unit testing is used to check the individual unit or components of an application’s source code. Usually, this testing is done by developers instead of engineers or testers because it requires detailed knowledge of the internal program design and code.

It is a kind of module testing or component testing that simplifies the debugging system and helps to detect and protect against bugs in the future.

Acceptance testing

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is done by the end-user to ensure the software meets the agreed requirements. It is also known as pre-production testing, which works at the final phase before product deployment into the market.

UAT is an example of functional testing, and there are two types of acceptance testing: Alpha (executed within the organization) and Beta (where the application is released to a limited market to generate user feedback).

Benefits of manual testing

There are several benefits of manual testing, but here are some key points to know.

Human intelligence

Manual testing enables testers to work with their higher cognitive abilities, such as deductive reasoning and common sense, to find software defects. It finds errors that automated testing might not be able to.

Programming knowledge

In manual testing, you don’t need to have good programming knowledge to understand requirements, document and execute test cases.

Detect subtle bugs

With manual testing, you can detect subtle bugs that automated testing can’t. Manual testers can spot issues that may not be evident, like visual consistencies or usability problems.

Non-functional requirements test

It allows you to test non-functional requirements like usability, performance, and security.

Got questions about manual?

Manual vs. automated testing – Which one is better?

Manual testing offers human observation, which is critical to ensure great customer satisfaction. On the other hand, automation testing saves time with automated scripts.

In certain cases, when requirements often change, to verify rarely used testing scenarios for user acceptance and usability testing — manual testing is the only option to choose.

What tools are used in manual testing?

There are several manual testing tools, such as TestLink (for test management), Mantis (for bug tracking and project management), Jira, Bugzilla, Zoho, and Adobe Test Studio.

How much will it cost to hire manual testers?

Project complexity, testing time, number of testers required, work experience, profile rating, and technical skills are the critical factors that may increase or decrease the cost of hiring a manual tester.

At SkillDB, you can submit your project specification to get an estimate for hiring a manual tester for software development projects.
