Retest Vs Regression Testing



Regression Testing


Retest is the process of checking whether the reported bugs are been fixed or not by the development team


Regression Testing: Testing conducted for the purpose of evaluating whether or not a change to the system (all CM items) has introduced a new failure



Purpose: To identify whether the given bugs /issues/ defects are fixed or not.

Purpose: To identify whether on fixation of the issues / bugs / defects new issues get introduced into the system.


To carry out the retest activity the issue report given by testing team with developer comments is enough. (I.e. Whether the issue is fixed or not commented by the developer against the developer comments column)

To carry out the regression testing, issue report along with that the requirements tracability matrix need to be given.
