Part of the Software development glossary:

Dynamic testing is a method of assessing the feasibility of a software program by giving input and examining output (I/O). The dynamic method requires that the code be compiled and run. The alternative method of software testing, static testing, does not involve program execution but an examination of the code and associated documents.

Types of dynamic testing include unit testing, integration testing, system testing and acceptance testing.
