Scrum Assessments & Certification provides tools you can use to examine and enhance your knowledge of Scrum. The primary aim of these assessments is to provide information about an individual's or a group's level of knowledge and to thereby enable improvement. assessments are grounded in the Scrum Body of Knowledge, the Scrum Guide™, which is written and maintained by Scrum's founders, Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. The Scrum Guide is published by and freely available at

Each of's assessments is developed by Scrum thought leaders with formal input from a wide range of industry experts, and then enhanced with input from the larger Scrum community. They are then monitored on an ongoing basis to ensure their continued integrity and relevance. 

Professional Scrum certification is highly recognized in the industry as the only Scrum certification based on testing of knowledge and understanding and therefore are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum. certification does not require retesting nor does it require future payments to retain certification status.

We strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.

* Those who achieve a minimum passing score receive certification. All assessments use the most recent version of the English Scrum Guide as the source for questions regarding the rules, artifacts, events, and roles of Scrum. However, reading the Scrum Guide alone is not enough for someone to pass a Professional Scrum Assessment. Questions often ask test-takers to interpret information and apply it to challenging situations, so knowledge gained from personal experience and other sources is typically needed.
