What is Acceptance Criteria?

Acceptance Criteria are the conditions that a product must satisfy before it can be accepted by a user and passed in the Production phase for deployment. In software testing, you define Acceptance Criteria to determine if a piece of software has passed or failed a specific criterion/criteria.

For example, does the user interface respond correctly when viewed in iOS?

There is no ambiguity here. Either it works in iOS or it doesn’t.

Acceptance criteria defines:

  • When a requirement is complete
  • When a requirement works as expected

Software testers use acceptance criteria to develop automated test cases as part of the continuous integration build process.

When writing acceptance criteria, use the Given, When, Then format.

This helps testers determine when to begin and end testing.

What is an Acceptance Criteria Log?

An Acceptance Criteria Log is an Excel spreadsheet or Word form used by Software Testers to document the success or failure of a piece a work item based on specified criteria.

Purpose of Acceptance Criteria?

The purpose of acceptance criteria in software testing is to:

  • Define a set of conditions which need to be met before a work item can be accepted as passed.
  • Created in the SDLC planning phase.
  • States what needs to be done
  • Written by business analyst or product owner
  • Ensures that the software tester know what a ‘story’ is completed
