Professional Scrum Master™ Assessments

To be effective, Scrum Masters need to have a rock-solid understanding of the practices and values of Scrum. The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) assessments allow people to validate their understanding of those practices and values, and how they would respond to situations that challenge them.

Those that pass the PSM assessments will receive the corresponding industry recognized certification. There are two options for Scrum Master assessment and certification: PSM I and PSM II. These assessments are sequential, meaning that the PSM I must be passed before attempting the much more difficult PSM II.

The value of certification is intimately tied to the demonstration of knowledge needed to achieve it. By that measure, the PSM assessments are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum. And, we strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.

PSM I

People who have passed PSM I and achieved certification demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the Scrum framework. They exhibit a dedication to continued professional development, and a high level of commitment to their field of practice. Achieving PSM I is the minimum demonstration of knowledge any Professional Scrum Master should be able to make.

*You must be logged in with your Scrum.org account to take Scrum.org assessments. All Scrum.org 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.
