Technical operation that consists of producing an assessment of one or more characteristics of a software product according to a specified procedure. [ ISO/IEC 25000 ]


  • This definition can be compared to that of testing in ISO/IEC Guide 2. However, the term evaluation is preferred in order to avoid confusion with the notion of testing widely accepted in the field of software engineering. Software product evaluation is not necessarily conformity testing (as defined in ISO/IEC Guide 2) in the context of a certification scheme. However, conformity testing can be part of an evaluation. [ ISO/IEC/IEEE 24765 ]
