This paper presents a novel adaptation of traditional random testing, called Restricted Random Testing (RRT). RRT offers a significant improvement over random testing, as measured by the F-measure. This paper describes the ideology behind RRT and explains its algorithm. RRT.s performance is examined using several experiments, the results of which are presented and discussed.
