Pilot testing allows people involved in marketing and business strategies to take decisions for investments. When we do pilot testing the software is just a bit more than a prototype. Beta Testing answers to the questions: Does the product/service fullfil the ...
As an interviewer, getting one of the text book replies will mainly loose point for the candidate. The correct answer should be something along the lines of "it depends". Non standardize definitions change from company to company and from team to team, even the first two answers from ashu and log_file are inconsistent with each other.
Pilot testing is when a select group of end users try the system under test, before deployment, to provide feedback about the product. Limited users use the product in pilot testing, and product is installed at the end customer to validate once the product is ready for the production in beta testing. Beta testing is is done at the client side (last stages ...
Pilot testing involves having a group of users try the system prior to its full deployment in order to give feedback on its performance. Beta testing is testing of the product in the user environment. Also, beta testing takes place in real time user environment and pilot testing in development environment. A selected group of users do pilot testing whereas ...
In general QA verifies an validates features and not defects so both the sentences could be misleading for your colleagues and the management. Why don't you simply write "Defect XXX has been resolved."?
I think the two tend to be interchangeable but if you are studying for the ISTQB Foundations exam they will give specific definitions for each one. Also, from my experience people in your team will always ask for test cases, I've never actually heard test scripts being referred to. (outside of Automated Test cases/scripts)
I think the test-case is the what and the test-script is the how of the test. Its possible to defined high level test-cases to describe what needs to be tested. The test-scripts contain all the detail to really execute the test.
BVA and unit tests It depends on when and how the developer implements the unit test. If the developer writes the test first (as recommended by test driven development, TDD), it's a black box test, because he doesn't see the implementation. In that case, the test conditions can only be based on the software specification. If the developer writes a unit ...
Different terms ad terminologies have different meaning to people. It depends on an individual's understanding and thought process as to how they perceive, understand, accept and use terminologies, methods, processes or anything for that matter. Why don't you describe here what Boundary Value Analysis means to you and why?
Generally in cases where a defect has been tested and is found to be fixed , it is termed as Defect has been VALIDATED.

If you providing this report(document) for end customers then "x.x.xV Setup Guide/Help". If you providing this report(document)for internal test team "x.x.xV Configuration Guide" If you providing report for external technical team "Test items and identfiers" better use IEEE standerds.
HW revision X, Firmware 1.1.3 etc. I use the term 'Environment'. It looks like JIRA does too, source.
In general, "Test item" is the subject of testing. Also "Test item configuration" or "Test item version". There is a IEEE standard (829) which offers quite a comprehensive outline. They use "Test items and their identifiers"
Get previous report for the same or similar project, and follow established precedents, using terminology other people in your company use. If you cannot, and English is not your first language, talk to some native English speaker in your company.
Verification answers the question: "Are we building the product right?" Does it conform to its specification? Validation answers the question: "Are we building the right product?" Is it doing what the user really needs/wants? To answer the question, it depends on the nature of the defect. If you confirm the fixes for defect now allow the product to ...
Verified: Adj. 1. verified - proved to be true; "a verified claim" I think validated means the same, both are used for confirmations. In this case the sentence should be: Defect XXX fixes have been verified. Since its not the defect that is verified, that would mean it was reproduced, but you want to say it was resolved correctly. Personally ...
