Test Scenario and software test scenario templates

Test scenarios are used to ensure that all process flows are tested from end to end.  The term “test scenario” is often used interchangeably with the term “test case”. However test scenarios are different from test cases because they usually have several steps whereas test cases are single steps.  When viewed in this sense, test scenarios are test cases, but they usually includes several test cases and the sequence that they should be executed.  In addition to this, each test is usually dependent upon output from the test that preceded it.

Test scenario are created by examining the functional requirements of the software/system, and preparing rational collections of functions that can be split into test procedures.  They should be designed in a manner that represents both typical and atypical conditions that could possibly occur within the application.

Test scenario are based on a hypothetical story that is supposed to help the tester make sense of a complex application.  An ideal test scenario is motivating, credible, complex, and easy to evaluate.  Test procedures and/or test scripts are used to execute test scenarios.   These procedures and/or scripts generally define a chain of steps that are needed to perform one or more test scenarios.
