Case studies can help companies to evaluate the benefi ts of testing techniques and tools before their possible incorporation into the testing processes. Although general guidelines and organizational frameworks exist describing what a case study should consist of, no general methodological framework exists that can be instantiated to easily design case studies to evaluate different testing techniques. In this paper we de nfine a fi rst version of a general methodological framework for evaluating software testing techniques, that focusses on the evaluation of eff ectiveness and efficiency. Using this framework, (1) software testing practitioners can more easily de fine case studies through an instantiation of the framework, (2) results can be better compared since they are all executed according to a similar design, and (3) the gap in existing work on methodological evaluation frameworks will be narrowed.
