Which approach would be better tagging or a new field?


I have a large number of test case across several projects. What I want to do is have all test cases, existing and new, to be peer reviewed to improve the quality of test cases and consistency of the test cases.

I want to be able to pull a report to track, over time, the % test cases that have been reviewed. Example an goal of 10% by end of July, 40% by September and 80% by end of the year.

If I add a tag in the test case called “Peer Reviewed” or add a new filed called “Peer Reviewed” and mark it Yes or No. Which way would be better to be able to get the metrics I am looking for? Example I want to be able to see that of the 4750 tests there are 1120 that have been reviewed so I know the % reviewed.
