Software testing metrics or software test measurement is the quantitative indication of extent, capacity, dimension, amount or size of some attribute of a process or product. A measurement is an manifestation of the size, quantity, amount or dimension of a particular attributes of a product or process. Software measurement is a titrate impute of a characteristic of a software product or the software process. It is an authority within software engineering. This paper describes various software testing metrics with their needs, benefits. It also define the types of metrics to assure software quality.
