VALLESPIR, Diego; MORENO, Silvana; BOGADO, Carmen  and  HERBERT, Juliana. All Uses and Statement Coverage: A Controlled Experiment. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.3, pp.563-576. ISSN 1405-5546.

This article presents a controlled experiment that compares the behavior of the testing techniques Statement Coverage and All Uses. The design of this experiment is typical for a factor with two alternatives. A total of 14 subjects carry out tests on a single program. The results indicate that there is enough statistical evidence to state that the cost of executing All Uses is higher than that of executing Statement Coverage - a result that we expected to find. However, no statistical differences were found as regards the effectiveness of the techniques.

Keywords : Empirical software engineering; testing techniques; test effectiveness; test cost.
