Test oracles are essential to verify the testing procedure. Here the role of test metrics for making an strong, efficient test oracle is indispensible. This paper presents the principles of construction of test oracles using pseudo oracles and metamorphic relations. We have also discussed how future work in this area can be carried out using mechanisms of extended regression testing and extended metamorphic testing. Our paper acts as a readymade guide for software testing practitioners who want to know the way to work with test oracles and be cognizant about the issues which pose difficulty to work with test oracles.
