Agile development implies that a developer can change his code at any time, to return another result, or perform a different operation, as requested by some new requirement. Any test regime is incompatible with agile principles. The outputs of a module is defined by what the module returns right now, after the new updates. Module tests for checking that the outputs are the way the outputs are, are meaningless. TDD, module tests, system tests or integration tests are all incompatible with agile development principles.
