Failure of a test case step does not necessarily mean that a defect has been found — it simply means the application did not behave as expected within the context of the test case. There are several common reasons for a test case step to fail: invalid test design / expectations, invalid test data, or invalid application state. The tester should ensure that the failure was caused by the application not performing to specification and that the failure can be replicated before raising a defect.
