Scripted Testing is a type of software testing that is performed by organizing the details of all the tasks and planning. Testing team properly plans for the scripted testing and a test script is written. A test script is a set of rules, phases involved and different steps involved in the testing process.

Unscripted Testing:
Unscripted Testing is a type of software testing in which the tester is free to select any possible methodology to test the software. In unscripted testing, software developers use their personal learning, knowledge, skills and abilities to test the software developed by themselves.
