Software Testing Dictionary. Provides definitions of testing jargons. The following are some of the definitions for testing terminology

Background testing: is the execution of normal functional testing while the SUT is exercised by a realistic work load. This work load is being processed "in the background" as far as the functional testing is concerned.

Benchmarks: Programs that provide performance comparison for software, hardware, and systems.

Benchmarking: is specific type of performance test with the purpose of determining performance baselines for comparison.

Clean test: A test whose primary purpose is validation; that is, tests designed to demonstrate the software`s correct working.(syn. positive test)

Code Inspection: A manual [formal] testing [error detection] technique where the programmer reads source code, statement by statement, to a group who ask questions analyzing the program logic, analyzing the code with respect to a checklist of historically common programming errors, and analyzing its compliance with coding standards. Contrast with code audit, code review, code walkthrough. This technique can also be applied to other software and configuration items. Syn: Fagan Inspection

Data-Driven testing An automation approach in which the navigation and functionality of the test script is directed through external data; this approach separates test and control data from the test script.
