Conclusions from regular reviews of test engineers’ skills and progress in performing software testing are drawn based on many aspects.

Every software testing company works out its own criteria and grading systems for evaluating achievements and failures of the tester in carrying out web site testing, desktop testing and mobile testing during the review period.

Any Review of Tester’s Professional Skills Usually Includes Evaluation Of:

  • successfully completed projects by the tester;
  • tools, methods and approaches that he or she mastered for the review period;
  • whether the tester fulfilled the plan in improving personal and professional skills and increasing knowledge that was set at the previous review;
  • the tester’s failures and mistakes.

The reviewers receive this information from the QA leads and colleagues of the tester that worked together with him or her at the projects and from the tester, whose skills are reviewed.

So, a test engineer should not only work hard, be creative, sociable and passionate about functional testing, compatibility testing, load testing etc., but also be able to tell about his or her achievements, willingness to take more responsibility and perform more complex tasks, salary expectations.

But QA experts advise testers against asking for too much, especially if there were serious failures and mistakes during the review period.
