Introduction: Use reports to assess test results

Learn how to assess your testing effort with quality management reports.

Learning objectives

Reporting is an important part of the development lifecycle in the quality management area. Reports can be either text-based or graphical. You can use reports to check test case coverage of requirements, follow test execution results to see trends, or display defects that are associated with a selected test plan.

Embedded reporting capabilities meet the most common report requirements for quality management. In this tutorial, you explore a small set of these report capabilities and learn how to complete these tasks:

  • Explore the quality management reports that come with the application
  • Run and save a report
  • Drill down into a report
  • Export a report to PDF format

For a brief demonstration of some of the Quality Management application's built-in reporting capabilities, watch this video:
