    I forgot to add in my last post something regarding the PSM1 assessment. When finishing the exam, but before hitting "finish exam" you get the opportunity to review your questions. If you need to go back you have to click individually through all the questions until you find the one you wish to review! Not very user friendly, especially as you're on a time limit!

    Further, with multiple choice questions, why do some question tell you to, for example, pick 2 answers, while with others you have no idea how you're supposed to pick?

    I wish Scrum.org would redesign the format of the exam and the questions to make it a bit clearer and a bit more user friendly.

    Hello and thank you for your feedback. We are currently working on improving functionalities, which will make it quicker and easier for our users to review their assessment questions during the session. Enjoy your day!

    With the open book nature of the assessment, the existing implementation that is time-boxed, with simple navigation is probably fine as it increases the degree of toughness to a certain extent and could be viewed as a differentiator.

    Re: PSM1 test navigation:

    I'm planning on taking the PSM1 this weekend, and am curious: have the improvements in navigation mentioned back in August materialized since? Specifically, is it possible to mark a question that you want to review later, and to be able to jump to it quickly, without clicking through all the questions in between? Hoping for a quick answer...
    thanks!

    Hi Nilitopi,

    Thanks for your question. I suggest writing down question numbers you want to refer back to.

    The navigation enhancements will allow you bookmark questions to refer to, as it's possible in the PSD I assessment. PSM I assessment functionality enhancements are coming soon.

    I completely agree with RMDonovan.

    I wrote down the question numbers I wanted to review in the remaining time just to find out that I have to count which is the question - this is absolutely user-UNfriendly and costed me a lot of time to check on all those questions I have marked.

    I am in Chennai / India and wish to apply for PSM-1 assessment. I am having the following questions.

    What is the fee that I would be required to pay and where is the link to book for a program.

    Is the exam conducted through a prometric centre in Chennai / India ? Or is the exam to be taken over the web from home ?

    It would be great if the process is expalined in detail. This response would help many other people desirous of taking the exam going forward.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Srinivas V

    Hello Srinivas,

    Thank you for your interest in Scrum.org! You are able to purchase an attempt at the PSM I assessment by going to the following link and clicking 'Get Password'.

    https://www.scrum.org/Assessments/Professional-Scrum-Master-Assessments/PSM-I-Assessment

    Each attempt is $100, and we would highly recommend that you first read The Scrum Guide and take the Scrum Open until you get at least a 95%. It is also a good idea to read the forums at scrum.org for extra information and valuable discussion.

    Scrum.org assessments are not conducted through a prometric centre; they are online assessments and can be taken wherever a solid internet connection is available.

    When we get the order for your PSM I attempt, we will process your password and send it to you within one business day. Your password will have a 14 day window of usage from when it is sent to you, so don't order it until you are ready.

    Thank you and best of luck!

    I have a query...If in between the asessment, the internet connection is lost, can we restart the assessment from where we left ?
