What is Condition coverage?

Condition Coverage in testing is closely related to decision coverage but has better sensitivity to the control flow.

  • However, full condition coverage does not guarantee full decision coverage.
  • Condition coverage reports the true or false outcome of each condition.
  • Condition coverage measures the conditions independently of each other.

Other control-flow code-coverage measures include linear code sequence and jump (LCSAJ) coverage, multiple condition coverage (also known as condition combination coverage) and condition determination coverage (also known as multiple condition decision coverage or modified condition decision coverage, MCDC). This technique requires the coverage of all conditions that can affect or determine the decision outcome.
