Another frequent report is a sort of Ten Most Wanted list. Depending on how your project is managed, it might be very appropriate for the quality team to publish a weekly list of the ten items they would most like to have resolved this week.
At each milestone listed in the test plan, a status report should also be created that reflects how close reality is to the plan. One way to do this is to use a test plan format that has a column for planned activity and a column for status. Sometimes this is hard to read and status would be better kept as a separate document.
