Empirical studies of a WYSIWYT testing methodology

Rothermel, Karen J. 31 March 2000 (has links)
Is it possible to achieve some of the benefits of formal testing within the informal programming conventions of the spreadsheet paradigm? We investigate an approach that attempts to do so via the development of a testing methodology for this paradigm. The "What You See Is What You Test" (WYSIWYT) methodology for testing spreadsheets supplements the automatic immediate visual feedback about values with automatic immediate visual feedback about "testedness". In this thesis, we present empirical data about the methodology's effectiveness resulting from two controlled experiments. The first experiment provided interesting but inconclusive results which spurred us to consider ways to improve the design of our experiment. We used the Cognitive Walkthrough method to evaluate and improve our design and readministered the experiment. Our results from the redesigned experiment show that the use of the methodology was associated with significant improvement in testing effectiveness and efficiency, even with no training on the theory of testing or test adequacy that the model implements. / Graduation date: 2000

Inferring Templates from Spreadsheets

Ghazinour Naini, Seyed Kamrooz 15 September 2011 (has links)
Spreadsheets for critical applications, such as financial reporting, are widely created and used by many people with no expertise in programming or software development. It is well known, however, that creating spreadsheets is an error-prone process. Several methodologies have been designed to reduce these errors. In this thesis we characterise the patterns and functional relationships among the formula cells and the corresponding data cells that commonly occur in spreadsheets, and show how the patterns occurring in a given sheet can be generalised to produce a template structure representing the family of spreadsheets of which the given sheet is a member. Finally, we show how this generalisation can be translated into an L-sheets program from which instances of this family can be generated.

Helping end users create and manage test cases in the WYSIWYT methodology

Fisher, Marc Randall 23 August 2002 (has links)
Previous work has developed the What You See Is What You Test (WYSIWYT) methodology for testing spreadsheets. This methodology has been shown to help end users test, debug, and modify spreadsheets. To date, however, this system has provided no support for creating, reusing, and managing test cases, a process that can be tedious and time-consuming. To alleviate this, we have developed automated test case generation and test reuse methodologies for the WYSIWYT methodology. For test case generation, we have prototyped two techniques, and performed a study to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of these techniques. The results of this study show that we can efficiently exercise a large percentage of a spreadsheet under test. We also implemented a test reuse methodology and performed a study that shows that we are able to find a relatively small subset of test cases to reuse after a modification to a spreadsheet, and that these test cases re-establish much of the coverage lost by modifications made to the spreadsheet. / Graduation date: 2003

An aid to convert spreadsheets to higher quality presentations

Olajide, Wasiu Olaniyi 29 August 2005 (has links)
A table is often the preferred medium for presenting quantative information. In some cases the presentation of quantative information can be presented as textual data or graphics at a loss of precision and clarity. The subject of this thesis is to aid the extraction and production of quality tables from a common means of preparing data in tabular form, the spreadsheet. Spreadsheet processors are in common use. Many tables are prepared by a range of users from the na??ıve users to experts in graphic arts. Spreadsheet data is also produced in automatic form from applications. We will review the specification of tabular data, presentation formats, and the systems and their associated formats for storing and interchange of data. The goal of this research is the specification and development of a system to convert common spreadsheet data to a markup language that will allow for presentation of the data at a higher level of typographic excellence. The desired characteristics of this system will include 1. Robust importing of data from an array of commercial and open spreadsheet processors 2. Formatting decisions of the output specified by the user rather than taken from the spreadsheet 3. Development or identification of a canonical form that is robust, does not lose data, and allows for repeated automatic application of styles 4. Development of a program to convert this canonical form into a markup system.
