How To Pass The Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) Assessment From Scrum.org

How To Pass PSM I Scrum.org

The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment is a 60 minute time boxed assessment where you’ll answer 80 questions (in English) of multiple choice type, very similar in style to the Scrum Open assessment.

You get one attempt and you decide when and where to take it. There’s no expiration date. You are not required to attend an assessment centre and can take it from the comfort of your own home.

Further details on what to expect from the assessment can be found on the Scrum.org PSM I assessment page.

Here are some tips on taking (and passing) the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment and gaining certification:

When you are ready to take the assessment for real:

  • Use the link in the email you will have received from Scrum.org
  • Have the Scrum guide and the Scrum glossary to hand and use it to look up what you need
  • Don’t spend too long on each question. If unsure of an answer, note down the question number and move on. Completing all the questions in the time box can be challenging.
  • Come back to the hard questions at the end and use your time to think them over.
  • Google the question if really unsure, but be careful as this takes time and there are lots of unreliable sources out there.
  • If time permits, check all your answers before the end.
  • Remember the Scrum Master is a coach and servant leader. He/she does not tell the team what to do or how to do it, except in matters relating to the Scrum framework.

You can resit the assessment if you need to, but you will need to purchase another attempt from Scrum.org.

I hope this information will help you to pass. Let me know how you get on via the comments below and good luck!
