Click on any of the term papers to read a brief synopsis of the research paper. The essay synopsis includes the number of pages and sources cited in the paper.
Quality of Software and the Impact of Testing
A 12 page paper reviewing several types of software testing approaches. The paper discusses unit, integrated, regression and acceptance testing, and also discusses automation. Testing in the software development lifecycle is crucial to the overall success of any program and is the factor on which software quality depends. Includes 3 charts. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
Question on the Productivity of Software Testing
A 9 page paper considering this question: “Are testing and quality assurance the cause of productivity impacts, or are they the effect?” Whether good or bad, positive or negative, there are instances when the answer to this question can be “Both.” Greater productivity attributable to higher quality certainly causes positive productivity effects. Conversely, attention to quality as part of the corporate mission is likely to result in greater quality in production as well. The paper examines quality, efficiency of operation, costs and customer focus. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
A 6 page paper that begins by explaining what this test is, including why dye is injected into the blood vessels and why the doctor might order this test, e.g., symptoms the patient might be exhibiting or other test results that suggest the angiography should be performed and what can be learned from this X-ray test. The essay comments on angioplasty and stents and why and how they are used. Other tests that may be performed are also mentioned. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Article Review, Software Development Study
A 3 page summary of a research article on software development. Research has suggested that user participation in the analysis stage of software development will be more significant to the overall success of software development than user participation in the design stage. Most of this research has focused only on project team members and not on operational users whose work will be impacted by the system being developed. Wu and Marakas designed a study that explored the “impact of operational end user participation in two important stages of the system development life cycle,” specifically, the analysis and design phrases of software development (Wu and Marakas, 2006, p. 127). No additional sources cited.
