Abstract—Software development process should have continuous adjustment and modification ability to meet the multifaceted needs of the users. Iterative and Incremental Development (IID) in accordance with user requirements to complete an incremental workable version, then test and assessment. However, new versions iterative testing and release need to spend much time and resources. It is the critical challenge that IID has to overcome. Continuous integration environment and high quality test case can increase the efficiency of IID continuous testing (CT). For this, in this paper, CI main activities and test case quality factors are deeply investigated. In order to improve the efficiency and quality of CT activities, test cases should have qualified documentation, manageability, maintainability and reusability quality characteristics. According to the CT activities, the paper proposes the test cases quality measurement (TCQM) model for test case quality improvement. And based on the TCQM model, designs the test case quality management procedure to timely identify and control test case quality defects and effectively enhance the activities efficiency of IID CT.

Index Terms—Continuous testing, IID, quality measurement, test case.
