The former two are even missing a description. I'll leave merging and creating appropriate tag wikis to you, but I thought I would mention it.

• Hi @slhck! I am looking through the old tag-synonyms posts to see if something still remains to be done. Both [test] and [testing] are currently (and for quite some time already) synonyms of [hypothesis-testing], so consider accepting gung's answer to make this thread appear resolved. – amoeba Dec 15 '15 at 14:41
• @amoeba Done, thanks for letting me know. – slhck Dec 15 '15 at 20:11

According to my conception hypothesis-testing means Test of Statistical Hypothesis. A test of a statistical hypothesis $H$ is a rule or procedure deciding whether to reject $H$ or accept $H$ based on a given sample from the population.
