    Hi,

    I did the PSPO I assessment today and marginally failed it.

    Two questions:

    a) There was a question about Burndown charts "if it is part of scrum or necessary in scrum". The instructor in my training said, that it is not necessary. What is the right answer?

    b) When die DT selected to many Product Backlog Items to do in one sprint and wants to discuss the situation. Who has to be in the meeting?

    Here my feedback on the assessment:

    I am a bit irritated about the feedback after the assessment. I did the PSM and the PSPO training, I reviewed the training material and the scrum guide and I read the forum questions. Without a little bit more detailed feedback (e.g. which field was ok. which not) I don't now, where I have to deepen my knowledge about scrum.

    That means, I can't inspect and adapt my process due to a lack of transparency. I is a shame these core elements of the scrum framework doesn't fit with the assessment.

    At the moment I am not sure if it makes any sense to do the assessment for another $100 again.

    1) It is not necessary, Scrum doesn't mandate the tool for visualising remaining work, it can be cumulative diagram or burnup chart or just as simple as Scrum Board
    2) The Development Team and Product Owner

    I would advise to immense yourself into the Scrum Guide and read it and understand really well. You can find lots of valuable tips here on forum. These 2 questions are easy and answers should have come naturally from reading Scrum Guide.

    thanks for your answer. Now I know that I gave the right answers. As I said, I read a lot and I had trainings. But without a bit more detailed feedback, I don't know who to go on. Its a bit like a lottery.

    One further suggestion: you might do the PSM Open Assessment until you consistently get 100%. There should be at least some relevance to the PSPO questions in content and/or format. It can't do any harm.

    One broad comment for anyone considering certifications and feedback....

    The feedback doesn't always address specific questions. Rather, the Support team (from my personal experience alone) gives pointers to areas.

    So, while the 2 questions above may be specific, there could be other questions worded differently to ensure the concept is well understood.

    I took the PSPO assessment about a year ago and requested feedback. I do not know whether there is instant feedback provided now, immediately after the assessment.

    For question 1, my reading is that you need complete transparency, whatever devices you use.

    For question 2, DT + PO is the immediate answer to me
