Test Execution Report in Software Testing

Test Execution report is a document which contains the summary of test activities and final test results. After the software testing cycle, it is important that to communicate the test results and findings with project stakeholders so that decisions can be made for the software release. i.e. If further testing is required and we need to delay the release.


Test Summary Report or Test Execution Report is an important deliverable which is prepared at the end of a Testing project, or rather after Testing is completed.

The prime objective of this document is to explain various details and activities about the Testing performed for the Project, to the respective stakeholders like Senior Management, Client etc.
