I was wondering which reports and graphs are actually used by software testing teams.


There are no must-haves. I would like to update your question to "What are useful..." if you wouldn't mind.

Useful reports and graphs would include statistics on:

  • Number and type of test cases (features, bugs, etc.)
  • Average time spend in the various statuses
  • Overall velocity of time from test story initiation to completion
  • Who's worked on what over time
  • Planned vs actual for work done

Another good chart is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn_down_chart which gives obvious visual clue if project is on track.

I like addition which adds all unplanned but needed work at the bottom, to show how addition are delaying the release.
