The following are a few sample questions from this exam to help you familiarize yourself with the style of the questions.
At the end of the first Sprint, the team has finished three user stories with 5, 3, and 8 story points, and is half way through a 10 story point item. What’s the velocity?
What’s the name of burn-down charts that use bars instead of lines?
Which of the following can be considered an information radiator?
A very large international Scrum project is about to start. All team members are mature developers with many years of experience in using Scrum. How many Scrum Masters are likely needed?
A Scrum project is supposed to have two releases: one in the middle and the other at the end of the project. Which of the following statements is correct?
What is an escaped defect?
The Development Team uses Story Points to estimate the Product Backlog items. Instead of estimating items individually, they start by ordering them by size, and then they assign story points to them. What’s the name of this technique?
When multiple Scrum teams are working on the same product, what is a common way to synchronize their technical activities?
When multiple Scrum teams are working on the same product, which is the best way to break down and assign the elements of the product to each team?
The team is spending about 20% of its capacity reviewing the old code and improving it, without changing its behavior. What is this called?
You’re assigned to one of the steps in a project that uses Kanban. You have done 4 items in your step which are not picked by the next step, and the work in progress limit for your step is 4. What should you do?
16 — 5+3+8=16
A Sprint Backlog displayed on a large physical board — An information radiator is any large display that provides important information about the status of the project, and is usually in physical form. Burn-down charts, burn-up charts, and Niko-Niko calendars can be presented in information radiators. The whole Sprint board (including the Sprint Backlog) can also be an information radiator.
Multiple Scrum Masters — Scrum teams always need Scrum Masters, even if they are mature and have many years of experience in using Scrum. A Scrum Master’s activities are not limited to training and coaching, they also protect the team and remove impediments. A very large international project probably uses multiple teams, and in this case, each team needs a Scrum Master. One person can be the Scrum Master for more than one team, but usually the time constraint forces us to use multiple Scrum Masters.
All increments should be releasable. — All Increments must be potentially releasable to enable usable feedback, regardless of the actual releases we may have.
A defect that has been discovered by the customer — Escaped defects are those we couldn’t find when we were developing; they have escaped our quality process, and been found by the customer.
Affinity estimation — Yes, that’s the name of this technique. By the way, batch estimation and mass story estimation are made-up terms.
Through Scrum-of-Scrums — When it’s required to use multiple teams in a project (for a single product), there will be Daily Scrums for each team to synchronize internally, and then one representative from each team will go to the Scrum-of-Scrums meeting to synchronize the teams.
Based on features — Scaled Scrum is the model that uses multiple Scrum teams for a single product. It follows all the basic Scrum framework rules, including the rule that says teams should be cross-functional. If elements of the product were broken down based on specialty (e.g. programming, testing, architecture), each of them would have to be taken care of by multiple teams and the team wouldn’t be cross-functional. Normally, each Product Backlog item should be completed by one team.
Refactoring — Refactoring is improving the code without changing its external behavior. It’s a good practice to spend some time every Sprint on refactoring the existing code, instead of developing new features.
You should help with the step that has become the bottleneck. — The complete work that is not pulled by the next step still belongs to you, and therefore, you have no capacity to work on a new item, so you should go help with the bottleneck.
You can take it from anywhere, as long as you’re in a small and quiet room. There should be no other people in that room, and no content related to the exam on the walls or desk.
At the beginning of the exam, you will be asked to move your webcam and show the whole room.

The unbored.training platform was our eLearning delivery platform for a few years, until the end of 2020, and learners needed to go there to take their eLearning courses. Now we’ve added the learning management system to our main website, mplaza.training, and unbored is retired.
All old user accounts in unbored.training are migrated to this website, and if you had an account there, you will be able to access the same courses that you bought there here.
First, it must be a reliable connection (preferably wired, not WiFi). You can usually resume the exam if you’re disconnected, but it’s a risk.
Second, it must be fast enough, because the exam will be invigilated via webcam and microphone. If your connection is fine for video chat, it should work well for the exam.
Please check the Terms and Conditions for more information.

There are many eLearning providers, and you might be wondering which one is the best choice for you. In fact, it’s a simple decision: all you have to do is to watch demos of the courses and compare them :) Just be careful with one thing: there are some providers who create one or a few interesting videos as samples, while the rest of the course doesn’t have anything to do with that.
