Value of Manual Regression Testing

GET YOUR COPY

Test automation brings tremendous value to regression testing plans, but leaves gaps too. Here's where manual testing can plug in the holes.

Test automation plays a critical role in regression testing. But test automation is not a golden hammer. Some parts of our system might be impossible to automate, such as visual elements (such as a CAPTCHA test) or other more subjective test cases. Automation simply cannot replicate the ease at which humans can make subjective comparisons, driven by countless external conditions.

In this ebook, explore how manual regression testing can plug the gaps in test coverage left by automated testing, and enable engineering and QA teams to receive real-world feedback on both the happy path and the alternative path, where users do not operate as the product manager and engineer originally intended. This kind of exploratory testing is only possible with manual testing— writing test scripts for an unknown alternative path is inherently impossible.
