Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Testing which allows us to guarantee the quality of systems within the limited development time is one of the important issues on system developments. Exploratory testing has been proposed as the useful method to such situations. However exploratory testing is not suitable for coverage testing and is ad-hoc, because this testing decides dynamically performed test cases based on testers’ knowledge and the results of previous test cases. In this paper, we propose new technique for exploratory testing. Our approach visualizes test session logs as state transition models according to given state definitions. We can make sure of the abstract information such as the area where the functions are tested/untested and the detail of test operations. We show that our method succeeded in the improvement of the coverage.
