Level test plans describe the particular activities to be carried out within each test level or, in some cases, test type. Level test plans expand, where necessary, on the master test plan for the specific level or test type being documented. They provide schedule, task, and milestone details not necessarily covered in the master test plan. In addition, to the extent that different standards and templates apply to the specification of tests at different levels, these details would be covered in level test plans.
On less formal projects or operations, a single test plan is often the only test management document written. In such situations, some of the informational elements mentioned earlier in this section could be covered in this test plan document.
For Agile projects, sprint or iteration test plans may take the place of level test plans.
