High Order Tests
High-order testing checks that the software meets customer requirements
and that the software, along with other system elements, meets
the functional, behavioral, and performance requirements. It
uses black-box techniques and requires an outsider perspective.
Therefore, organizations often use an independent testing group
or the users themselves to perform high-order testing.
High-order testing includes validation testing, system testing,
and acceptance testing. The test strategy specifies the type
of high-order testing that the project requires. This depends
on the aspects that tare important in a particular system from
the user perspective.
