Structured Acceptance Test ("STAT") is a simple and extensible standard for acceptance testing processes. The target of the test can be any set of computer files, for example source code, images, audio files and documents. The process can be an automated computer program, manual execution of a test plan or even a committee review. The outcome of the process is findings and recommendations which can be used to improve the target and can indicate a pass or fail result. If your acceptance testing process uses a standardized output format then consumers can make better use of it.
