I've protected this page because multiple vandals using different IPs keep vandalizing this. Any admin who feels this has been protected long enough can unprotect, or if no one does, I'll do so tomorrow. -Greg Asche (talk) 03:37, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
Is this testing?
Is this page a test page? 188.8.131.52 12:40, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
FYI. Tester is also a lipstic etc. used for testing at cosmetics departements (just go and check out). I think this nerdish male environment has never head of it (included myself) .. //arl
In addition to the River Test, it might be worth mentioning
- Test Valley District, a local government district and
- Southampton Test, a UK Parliament constituency.
Apologies for suddenly twinklefying everything. You can't test some of the tags on the sandbox because it friendly won't tag pages that start with Wikipedia... I reverted it immediatly so no harm done. SGGH speak! 15:16, 19 February 2008 (UTC).
test is not experiment
A test in science is not necessarily an experiment, I think, at least not as defined in experiment, in particular w.r.t. the notion of empiricism. I think of bit testing, primality testing... well, unless one considers the evaluation of a mathematical expression as an empirical method to gain knowledge...— MFH:Talk 14:22, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- A test is a comparison of an expectation with an observation. This is skin to experiment, which compares observation to theory. --Ancheta Wis (talk) 23:42, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Defining a 'test'
A "test" in systems engineering is by any combination of four possible accepted methods:
- Inspection (It's supposed to be green, and it looks green to me!)
- Analysis (includes modeling and simulation or other accepted mathematical or analytic methods)
- Test (control stimulus and observation of expected response)
- Observation (use in a live environment and based on approval of subject matter experts)
In no way is any of this considered a proof. Its simply a matter of formal acceptance. In engineering, there is no test that can eliminate all possible defects.--184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:06, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
