The IEEE International Software Testing Contest (2021 Spring)

Software plays an integral part in our everyday lives because of its near ubiquitous influence in our increasingly technological society. Therefore, taking appropriate steps to apply software testing techniques is of paramount importance. To promote advanced software testing theory, techniques, and tools, the Dallas Chapter of IEEE Reliability Society, in collaboration with the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas as well as other sponsors such as Mooctest Inc. will host an IEEE Software Testing Contest on Saturday, April 24, 2021 in a virtual mode.

Contest Guidelines

  • All contestants must use their own computers and Chrome browser. The contest has two parts:
    • The first part is a JUnit tutorial and practice test. It will be available on April 17. The objective is to help contestants understand the contest format, the basics of the JUnit testing framework, and the MoocTest online testing platform required to use during the contest. Each contestant needs to have basic knowledge about Java programming.
    • The second part is the contest (09:00 - 11:30 am, April 24, Central Daylight Time, USA). The contest is individual based. Each contestant will design test cases with specific input values based on the given source code to test multiple Java programs. The quality of the generated test cases will be measured by the code coverage and mutation score achieved.
