PSM I Assessment

PSM IThe Professional Scrum Master level I (PSM I) assessment is available to anyone who wishes to validate his or her depth of knowledge of the Scrum framework and its application. Those that pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PSM I Certification to demonstrate their mastery of the content.

Taking a course is not required. While a 2-day Professional Scrum Foundations or Professional Scrum Master course is highly recommended, if you feel you already possess a high level of Scrum knowledge, you have the option to take the PSM I assessment directly. The PSM I assessment is grounded in The Scrum Guide, the official Scrum Body of Knowledge. The PSM I assessment is quite difficult. Parts of the assessment may ask the taker to think about or interpret the meaning from The Scrum Guide. Or, in some cases, apply their own experience.

Unlike other Scrum certifications that require only class attendance, certification requires a minimum score on an online assessment. Attending a course is neither required nor sufficient for certification. This gives certification teeth and ensures that it has true value in the marketplace.

Microsoft® uses the PSM I assessment to validate knowledge as part of its Silver and Gold Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) competencies.
