While the use of computer applications is widely spread in every business and, hence, the reliability of software is critical, it is believed that many organizations involved in software development do not take software testing sufficiently seriously as an important task.
It is worthwhile to find out how far organizations are carrying out software testing in a systematic and structured manner or still taking on an ad-hoc approach.
A survey was conducted to understand the software testing practices and the level of related education and training in Hong Kong.
It was found that most testing team members did not have formal training in software testing.
University curricula generally did not prepare graduates with enough coverage in software testing.
It is proposed that a review of the current software engineering curricula in the universities to examine the coverage of software testing will be useful to the development of quality software.
