You can analyze the status for one test plan or across test plans. The status of one test plan is usually the result of a particular test.

An overview of the test progress appears. The left-hand column contains information about the test case, and the right-hand column contains the test status.

To display all test statuses assigned to all test cases, choose View ® Additional information. Other status analysis display types are under the menu item View.
