Advantages of Regression Testing

Let our Crowd check your digital product for bugs and malfunctions after a new release, a bug fix, or other changes to the software. Instead of investing hours in the development of automated software testing, you can run an efficient regression test to ensure that your product is flawless.

The Challenge

Fixing errors shouldn’t lead to new bugs

Even small changes in the source code of your application, website or any other digital product can cause a domino effect of problems. Detecting those problems can be time-consuming and nerve-racking as they can seem completely unrelated to the changes made.

Regression tests help you make sure the fixed software part is working correctly now and ensures that all other functionalities still behave like intended.

Testing, finding bugs, fixing bugs, and testing again – that’s what your development life cycle should ideally look like. This might sound plausible, of course, but most of the time this plan fails due to a lack of time and resources.

That’s why tools for test automation are often used for the sake of efficiency and thoroughness. In many cases though, manual testing is preferable, especially when considering the huge amount of effort required to create test cases for automated testing.

The Solution

Regression testing – manually with the Crowd

Our Crowd supports testing of any digital product – regardless if it’s a website, an app, or an IoT device.

Get ad-hoc access to the largest testing community of over 600,000 testers worldwide and use their skill set for the creation of test cases.

Our Crowd provides over 1,000,000 devices

And it covers a broad range of operating systems (OS) and software versions.

With their help, you can perform exploratory or structured regression tests in real-world conditions and repeat after each iteration or modification of your software.

Depending on your requirements, this repetition can be performed by the same or an entirely new group of testers. Use our testing platform, the Nest, to monitor your entire test and export bugs to your own bug tracking software like JIRA or Redmine.

What is Regression Testing?

Every little change in the software and code of your digital product can have unexpected consequences. Regression testing in software QA means testing the software after a development cycle to ensure that existing functionalities haven’t been adversely affected.

It definitely makes sense to test applications, do a website performance test, or do any other form of quality assurance testing after rebuilding the code of your digital product. The purpose is to make sure there are no bugs that have been accidentally introduced into the new version, and to guarantee that previously fixed bugs don’t cause new trouble.

Traditionally, regression tests have been performed by the software quality assurance team after a development cycle. They normally perform regression testing as unit testing or functional testing.

While unit testing focuses on individual parts (units) of the software and ensures that they are working as intended, functional testing puts emphasis on the functions or features of the digital product – not only on separate units.

How to run a regression test

Commonly, QA testers re-run testing scenarios that were written when a bug appeared for the first time. By repeating this test after every release or iteration you can make sure that all old bugs remain fixed.

This repetition can already be quite time-consuming after just a few releases and bug fixes. That’s why it can be useful to use automation testing tools for these kinds of repetitive tasks.

However, manual regression tests are common as well. Unlike automation software in QA automation, real testers can add additional benefits. Besides that, setting up a test automation framework also takes a lot of effort before it’s finally running. This makes automated testing useful only if you have a lot of releases in a short amount of time.

Manual Regression Testing with the Crowd

If you don’t plan to invest in automation tools but still need quick and reliable test results, Crowdtesting should work well for you. Software testers from all over the world test on real devices and real browsers.

You can give testers structured test scripts and let them check precisely those functions you want a closer inspection of, or you can let them explore your digital product more freely – hoping to detect bugs that might be new to you.

Of course, you can also combine UI tests with structured system testing. Additionally, no matter which type of regression test you choose, you can opt to run tests regularly to always ensure that your latest release is still problem-free.
