What is the difference between Conventional Testing and Uncoventional Testing?

Conventional Testing is based on the conventions/testing standards planed as per Quality Management System to maintain standards. Unconventional Testing is testing performed without any conventions.

Main differences between Conventional Testing and Uncoventional Testing:

  1. Conventional testing: It is nothing but validation i.e. testing done while executing the code.
    Unconventional testing: It is Verification, which involves verification of docs, code etc.
  2. Conventional testing: is a sort of testing in which the test engineers will check the developed application or its related parts are working according to the requirements or not.
    Unconventional testing: is a sort of testing in which Quality Assurance people will check each and every role in the organization from the Initial Phase of SDLC to the end.
  3. In Conventional testing, the developed components of the application are checked by the tester for whether they are working according to the expectations of the consumers or not.
    A typical Unconventional testing starts from the coding phase of the systems development life cycle.
  4. Unconventional testing keeps a track of the whole software development process on the basis of the quality assurance principles i.e. whether or not the software has been developed according to the guidelines and specifications provided by the client company.
    The Conventional testing is focused more up on the functionality of the software system or application.

It is concluded that Conventional testing is nothing but a similar initiative of quality management system. Unconventional testing is to just by looking at the name that it doesn’t follow any conventions.
