Automated test generation techniques for graphical user interfaces include model-based approaches that generate tests from a graph or state machine model of the interface, capture-replay methods that require the user to specify and demonstrate each test case individually, and modeling-language approaches that provide templates for abstract test cases. There has been little work, however, in automated goal-based testing, where the goal is a realistic user task, a function, or an abstract behavior. Recent work in human performance regression testing (HPRT) has shown that there is a need for generating multiple test cases that execute the same user task in different ...
