Abstract : This report was written to help software development and support activities (SDSA)1 identify, evaluate, and adopt effective software testing practices and technologies. There are several types of software testing technologies that can potentially improve an organization's ability to test software to find defects and to determine if the software satisfies its requirements. Section 1 introduces the Software Technology Support Center (ST SC) and its mission. Section 2 describes some software testing terms and a classification of tools (taxonomy). Section 3 provides additional inf6rmation about static analysis technologies. Section 4 presents the STSC's method for evaluating and selecting software test tools. Section 5 discusses improving the testing process using the Software Engineering Institute's (SEl) Capability Maturity Model (CMM). (KAR)
