This paper combines two distinct areas of research, namely software reliability growth modeling, and efficacy studies on software testing methods. It begins by proposing two software reliability growth models with a new approach to modeling. These models make the basic assumption that the intensity of failure occurrence during the testing phase of a piece of software is proportional to the s-expected probability of selecting a failure-causing input. The first model represents random testing, and the second model represents partition testing. These models provide the s-expected number of failures over a period, which in turn is used in analyzing the failure detection abilities of testing strategies. The specific areas of investigation are *) conditions that enable partition testing yielding optimal results, and) comparison between partition testing and random testing in terms of efficacy
