Test scripts vs Test Case - What's the difference?

238    Asked by ananyaPawar in QA Testing , Asked on Apr 26, 2022

Iknow that test cases are written in human readable language, whereas test scripts are written in code and mostly done for automated testing.

But can anyone tell me what else makes them different from each other?

Is there any logical difference between them or are these interchangeable terms?

Test scripts vs Test case

I am expecting all answers must be aligned, But there is a difference. User[Non-technical] readable steps are mentioned to test particular scenario is called as Test Case User[Technical] readable steps written in programming language are referred as Test Script Test Case : A test case is a documentation which specifies input values, expected output and the preconditions for executing the test. [Reference - ISTQB book] This terminology mostly used for Manual Testing Test Script: A test script in software testing is a set of instructions that will be performed on the system under test to test that the system functions as expected. This terminology is mostly used for Automation Testing.
