ISO/IEC 15504 defines base practices for software processes and presents a set of generic practices that characterize the quality with which base practices are performed. The Artifact Oriented Process Model for Testing - ArtProTest - is a generic software testing model defined at CenPRA by selecting software testing "best practices"; it evolved over the last years and has been published in specific forums. The ArtProTest, which defines a set of partially ordered activities and test artifacts, has been validated and improved based on the experience of its application at software development companies in Brazil. In this work we carried out an evaluation of ArtProTest under the perspective of ISO/IEC 15504 process improvement model. We evaluated essentially which aspects of ISO/IEC 15504 are taken into account by ArtProTest. We also evaluate how ArtProTest can be used to supplement software testing related aspects of ISO/IEC 15504 model. Our analysis results pointed to improvements in ArtProTest, and also identify testing task and artifacts not considered by ISO/IEC 15504, which can significantly improve an organization testing practices.147154Argollo, M., Bueno, P.M.S., Crespo, A.N., Jino, M., Rosa, M., Borba, W., Uma Experiência de Implantação de Processo de Teste em Pequena Empresa (2006) Proc.
