Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 2,548,955 views on Thursday, 07 September 2017 our article of the day is Test data.
Test data is data which has been specifically identified for use in tests, typically of a computer program.
Some data may be used in a confirmatory way, typically to verify that a given set of input to a given function produces some expected result. Other data may be used in order to challenge the ability of the program to respond to unusual, extreme, exceptional, or unexpected input.
Test data may be produced in a focused or systematic way (as is typically the case in domain testing), or by using other, less-focused approaches (as is typically the case in high-volume randomized automated tests). Test data may be produced by the tester, or by a program or function that aids the tester. Test data may be recorded for re-use, or used once and then forgotten.
