    Hi Maitya, I think every website has at least some percentage of the users who turn in to their homepage and then don’t make another click to view anything else. Although a bounce could include multiple actions taken by a user. In Google Analytics, bounce rate is actually the percentage of single interaction visits to a website. A pageview is going to be the most common second interaction on the bulk of websites, but there are a handful of other possible interactions—events*, transactions, and so on—that also affect bounce rate.
    Let’s now see what is considered as good bounce rate. Typically, according to a survey most websites will see bounce rates fall somewhere between 26% and 70%. Hence we can conclude that a bounce rate in the range of 26 to 40 percent is excellent. While from 41 to 55 percent is considered roughly average. 56 to 70 percent is higher than average, but may not be cause for alarm depending on the website. Anything over 70 percent is disappointing for everything outside of blogs, news, events, etc.

    Before I explain how it is calculated, I shall start by explaining what bounce rate is. Going by the definition: Bounce rate is the percentage of site visits that are single-page sessions, with the visitor leaving without viewing a second page. It is typically used as a measurement of a website’s overall engagement. Generally, we can say that the no. of clicks on your website which didn’t result in anything, or after one click it wasn’t used for anything else or nothing else was viewed on it.
    Now let’s see how is it calculated, its really simple, it is calculated by the total number of one-page visits divided by the total number of entries to a website. For instance:
    Let’s say if the homepage of a website receives 10000 visitors over the course of a month, and 2000 of those visitors leave the site after viewing the homepage without proceeding to any other pages, then the bounce rate of the homepage would be 20%.

    Hi Manushree, a common example of quality control is verification and inspection. For instance, assume there’s a company which sells milk cans. Then if a quality control process is applied here to check the quality of the milk, a regular inspection will take place at the manufacturing unit. The testing would generally be done in samples, after the control limits or specification limits are set. Then the sample would be assessed and if it comes under the limits, whole lot would be accepted otherwise rejected. If the lot is rejected then the whole lot of milk cans would be assessed again based on given parameters.

    Its not really difficult to do if you know the right steps of the process. So let’s begin with the basic and most important step on which the whole process stands is, setting the quality standards. You may set your own quality standards if not provided by local bodies, health inspector or Government regulatory bodies. Next, begin by focusing on the most important measures — those that have the biggest effect on your profits and your customer experience. This will enable you to get results quickly and also keeps you and your team from becoming overwhelmed. Then you need to create operational processes to deliver quality.
    When you are done with that then you shall review your data regularly to see how well your company is meeting its quality standards. Lastly you can get feedback from reliable sources and make improvement if any.

  1. Well there's a clear difference between control and assurance which leads us up to identifying the difference between quality control(QC) and quality assurance(QA).

    Well there’s a clear difference between control and assurance which leads us up to identifying the difference between quality control(QC) and quality assurance(QA). While the aim of QC is to identify the defects on the other hand the purpose of QA is to prevent a defect. Quality Assurance is a proactive process and is Prevention in nature. It recognizes flaws in the process. Quality Assurance has to complete before Quality Control. While, Quality Control is a reactive process and is detection in nature. It recognizes the defects. Quality Control has to complete after Quality Assurance.
    Sometimes these two terms are confused to be same but the fact is both are related to each other but they are different in origins.
    QA is the technique of managing quality. It does not involve executing the program while QC always involves executing the program. All team members are responsible for QA while only testing team is responsible for QC. An example of QA is Verification and an example of QC is Validation.
    Statistical Technique used on both QC and QA is known as Statistical Process Control (SPC.)
    Hence now you know that, QA and QC both are part of Quality Management however QA is focusing on preventing defect while QC is focusing on identifying the defect.

    Going by the definition: It is a system of maintaining standards in manufactured products by testing a sample of the output against the specification. Speaking generally, Quality Control (QC) is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved. It requires the business to create an environment in which both management and employees try to improve and strive for perfection. This is done by creating benchmarks for product quality and testing products to check for statistically significant variations.
    It is generally done by setting control limits or specification limits and product outside these limits are rejected to be sent further.

    Testing is an extreme important part to analyse whether or not a product meet its specifications. To find defaults, if any in the manufacturing unit. Testing helps to assess quality of the product, to see if there is any variation or defaults. It does not just help businesses but also the consumers to trust a brand, by knowing their product has been tested and is of good quality.
    For e.g.: hallmark on jewelry tells that it has been tested and the jewelry is genuine.

    There are few steps which could be followed to select a sample for surveying. But before you select a sample, you need to know what your target population is, so that your requirements are met. Then you can choose one of these few techniques to select your sample:-
    1. Random Sampling
    2. Stratified Sampling
    3. Systematic Sampling
    4. Convenience Sampling
    5. Quota Sampling
    6. Purposive Sampling
    Also, knowing the target population, you have to decide the number of the participants in a sample, which is termed as the “sample size”.

    Well, to go by the definition we have:
    Testing is the process of evaluating a system or its component(s) with the intent to find whether it satisfies the specified requirements or not.
    Basically if we speak holistically then there is a certain specification to everything that is out there to be purchased or sold. To check if a product meets the expectations and its requirement, testing is carried out.

    Basically there are two types of survey, or we can say they are classified into two broad categories.
    First category is on the basis of instrumentation, which can be again done in two ways, namely, questionnaire and interview. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages like, interview is more personal but is time consuming, while questionnaire is less time consuming but requires the other person to be literate.
    Second category is on the basis of span of time used to conduct the survey. It comprised of cross-sectional surveys and longitudinal surveys. Collecting information from the respondents at a single period in time uses the cross-sectional type of survey, while when the researcher attempts to gather information over a period of time or from one point in time up to another, he is doing a longitudinal survey.
