 for Test coverage
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  test coverage
  
      A measure of the proportion of a program exercised
     by a test suite, usually expressed as a percentage.  This
     will typically involve collecting information about which
     parts of a program are actually executed when running the test
     suite in order to identify which branches of conditional
     statements which have been taken.
  
     The most basic level of test coverage is code coverage
     testing and the most methodical is path coverage testing.
     Some intermediate levels of test coverage exist, but are
     rarely used.
  
     The standard Unix tool for measuring test coverage is
     tcov, which annotates C or Fortran source with the
     results of a test coverage analysis.  GCT is a GNU
     equivalent.
