Skills measured

This exam measures your ability to accomplish the technical tasks listed below. The percentages indicate the relative weight of each major topic area on the exam. The higher the percentage, the more questions you are likely to see on that content area on the exam.

Starting June 8, 2014, the questions on this exam includecontent covering Visual Studio 2013.

Please note that the questions may test on, but will not be limited to, the topics described in the bulleted text.

Create and configure test plans (30‒35%)

  • Create test plan properties
    • Select test settings; select configurations; define name, description, area, path, and iteration; select test environments; assign build to test plan, including when to assign a build to a plan, compare assigned build to another build, clone test plans and test suites
  • Configure test settings
    • Create multiple test settings, select data and diagnostics, set up roles
  • Define configurations
    • Manage configuration variables, set default configurations, add new configurations, set configuration state, delete configurations
  • Create test suites
    • Create query-based test suites using hierarchical queries, create requirement-based test suites, create static test suites, copy test suites, create a test suite hierarchy, assign test suite states, clone test suites from the command line, manage test suites by using a web browser
  • Configure test suites
    • Assign testers, select configurations, order test cases within a test suite, set defaults

Manage test cases (30‒35%)

  • Create test cases
    • Design test cases that have clear and measurable steps, assign test case properties (title, areas and iterations, state, priority, assign to, and automation status), add attachments and links, add the test case description and history, add tested requirements, manage test case workflow (state), bulk author test cases by using a grid view
  • Create test steps
    • Add and remove parameters to and from actions or expected results, add and remove data, create repeatable test actions for using fast forward for manual testing, create expected results, add test step attachments
  • Define parameters
    • Manage test case iterations, create a parameter variable, rename parameters, delete parameters
  • Manage shared steps
    • Create shared steps, design shared steps that can be reused effectively across different test cases, move shared steps, create action recording for shared steps
  • Manage requirements
    • Review requirements, verify requirements, verify all requirements are accounted for, validating test coverage

Manage test execution (35‒40%)

  • Run tests
    • Run tests with options, create fast forward for manual testing recordings, select fast forward playback options (all steps, multiple steps), set test run states, validate expected results (add comments, snapshots), run tests from a browser, update the status of multiple test cases without opening them in the test runner, customize the test result fields in Microsoft Test Manager (MTM)/web browser, pause and resume tests in MTM/web browser, edit tests inline during test execution, manually test Windows Store apps and review action logs
  • Perform exploratory testing
    • Perform ad hoc exploratory testing; explore by work item; generate test case from test; generate bugs from exploratory testing; add screenshots, video, or audio recording
  • Manage bugs
    • Track bug metrics (bug trends, status), verify bugs (create test from bugs), analyze bug reports, manage bug workflow
  • Use lab center
    • Create new environments, create copies of environments, run tests on remote environments, execute test case in a lab center environment
  • Analyze recommended tests
    • Select the build in use, compare the current build to a previous build, view recommended tests, analyze related work items
  • Perform analysis
    • Analyze reports (requirements-user stories), analyze by test suite, analyze by configuration, identify areas where quality is low, identify test plan status, view test plan results in MTM, work with out-of-the-box reports, customize out-of-the-box reports
  • Manage work items
    • Validate requirements, work item relationships (for example, what it means when a test case is associated with a requirement), create work item queries, perform bulk updates in Excel
