On the basis of the analysis of the structure of traditional reporting software defects that founded during testing, created a modified structure of the report. The proposed structure of the report can not only improve the interaction of developers and testers of the software, but also as a means of control over their activities. In this report, each field is considered in terms of its accounting for estimate the effectiveness of testing. Within the scope of the article the method of quantitative assessment of the effectiveness of software testing based on bug-report was developed. The effectiveness of the testers evaluated based on a formula that is derived heuristically and takes into account the number and criticality of errors. A minimum adequate level of testing using specified techniques was established.
