Examination


The PeopleCert SCRUM Master II certification exam is designed to validate a candidate’s knowledge, and understanding, of the Scrum practices, as detailed above as well as how to be able to apply and analyze this knowledge in real situations faced by a Scrum Master.


The SCRUM Master II exam focuses on the following four (4) categories in the cognitive domain of Bloom’s taxonomy1 which is a reference for different levels of learning:

  • Knowledge

  • Comprehension

  • Application

  • Analysis

 


Assessment Approach


The assessment approach used for the PeopleCert SCRUM Master II certification focuses on the four basic categories of Knowledge, Comprehension, Application and Analysis.

Knowledge is defined as recalling previously learned material, from facts to theories and represents the lowest level of learning outcomes in the cognitive domain. Such learning outcomes are turned in assessment objectives that include knowing and recalling such as:

  • Common and/or basic terms, definitions, concepts and principles

  • Specific processes

  • Processes, procedures and project management methods

 

Comprehension is the lowest level of understanding and entails the ability to grasp the meaning of the material taught, including some elements of interpretation, translation or estimation during the process. Such learning outcomes and in turn assessment objectives go beyond simply recalling information and may include:

  • Understanding facts, concepts and principles

  • Interpreting material (i.e. code, charts, graphs, text, diagrams)

  • Justifying a process, procedure and method used

 

Application is a level where candidates need to combine their knowledge and understanding/comprehension on a subject and be able to create an abstraction. More specifically, candidates are expected to apply their knowledge and understanding so that abstractions, general principles, or methods to specific concrete situations are made. Such learning outcomes and in turn assessment objectives go beyond simply recalling information and may include:

  • Use ideas, principles and theories in new, specific and concrete situations

  • Being able to choose appropriate methods and tools, apply principles, use a specific approach or identify the selection of options at a given situation

  • Apply what is learnt into a new situation

  • Apply rules, methods, concepts, principles, and theories

  • Learning outcomes in this area require a higher level of understanding than those under comprehension

 

Analysis is the level that goes beyond application as the candidates need to be able to break down information into its component parts so that its organizational structure may be understood and to make inferences. More specifically, candidates need to break down, discriminate, diagram, detect, differentiate and illustrate which are all important tasks at this level of learning and include the previous levels of knowing, comprehending and applying. Such learning outcomes and in turn assessment objectives go beyond knowing, understanding and applying and may include:

  • see patterns that they can use to analyze a problem

  • develop divergent conclusions by identifying motives or causes

  • make inferences

  • find evidence to support generalizations

  • identify parts, analyze the relationship between parts, and recognize the organizational principles involved

 

The assessment incorporates the above learning outcomes as it uses assessment objectives that cater for the above cognitive domain categories.
