gives an object that represents the results of a VerificationTest.


  • TestResultObject is typically obtained as a result from VerificationTest.
  • TestResultObject[]["prop"] returns the value of "prop" for a given TestResultObject.
  • TestResultObject[][{"prop1","prop2",}] returns an association of values corresponding to several properties.
  • TestResultObject[]["Properties"] returns a list of all properties available.
  • Possible properties for TestResultObject include:
  • "AbsoluteTime"absolute time the test was created, in UTC time zone
    "AbsoluteTimeUsed"absolute number of seconds in real time that have elapsed
    "ActualMessages"messages generated on evaluating input
    "ActualOutput"output generated on evaluating input
    "CPUTimeUsed"CPU time spent on evaluating input
    "Created"DateObject of creation time, in $TimeZone
    "ExpectedMessages"messages passed to the test
    "ExpectedOutput"evaluated expected output
    "Input"original test input
    "MemoryConstraint"original MemoryConstraint value
    "MemoryUsed"number of bytes used to store all data
    "Outcome"outcome on running the VerificationTest
    "SameTest"original SameTest function
    "TestFileName"absolute file name of the currently executing test file
    "TestID"unique identifier for the test
