Scrum Quizzes

If you decided to earn a certificate at Scrum.org or just learn Scrum better, my quizzes should greatly help you:

When I decided to pass PSM I exam, I found no good free practice quizzes. The open assessments at Scrum.org are fine, but the number of available questions is too small. I decided to help all the Scrum learners by creating these free quizzes. You will learn the Scrum Guide by heart and get an idea of the real assessments.

There are two quiz modes:

  • Learning Mode – Each question has an immediate explanation. No time limit. All quiz questions are available. Pass it several times and you will be prepared well for the real assessment.
  • Real Mode – It is very similar to the real assessment. No correct answers and explanations. There are 80 randomly selected questions and 60 minutes. Try it and get the feeling of the real assessment!

All the quizzes based on the Scrum Guide v2017.

If you are looking for more questions or want to clarify some weird Scrum topic, take a look at Scrum Questions page.

Questions about the real exams and the quiz itself are answered at Quiz FAQ page.

Professional Scrum™, Professional Scrum Master, PSM, PSM I, Professional Scrum Product Owner, PSPO, PSPO I, Scrum Open, Scaled Professional Scrum, Nexus, Nexus Guide, etc. are the protected brands of Scrum.org.

    Hi Mikhail,
    Will you help me explain little more about following statement.

    Product Backlog refinement usually consumes no more than 10% of the capacity of the Development Team.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. lalratnakar

      I guess it says 10% but if it need more time or more meetings it can be taken

        Thanks for answering this question. It looks like I missed it.

        I agree. Not more than 10% of total time spent on refinement is a good goal.
        However, some complex features may require more time.

    One of the question from PSM 1 learning mode :

    Who is allowed to participate in the Daily Scrum?

    The Scrum Master : YES (My answer)
    The Product Owner : YES (My answer)
    The Key Stakeholders
    The Development Team : YES (My answer)

    Explanation : The Daily Scrum is an internal meeting for the Development Team. If others are present, the Scrum Master ensures that they do not disrupt the meeting

    My question:
    If the question was who is REQUIRED to attend daily scrum then my answer would be only the DT. but this question here asks who is ALLOWED to attend DS – isn’t SM allowed to attend? Not so much sure about PO.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Sharad

      Hmm, i read some posts on Scrum.org forum. And I think the question is about Attending DS vs Participating DS. So PO and SM can attend DS but they are not allowed to participate (talk) unless required by DT.
      Wow.

        Hi Sharad,

        You are right. People outside of the Development Team can come and listen at the Daily Scrum, but cannot speak.
        I answered a similar question here: https://mlapshin.com/index.php/blog/scrum-questions#participate_vs_attend

        Thanks,

    Hey Mikhail,

    This message to thank you for these tests; they helped a lot in understanding Scrum better and in securing my “PSM I” certification in only one step (96.3%). 🙂

    I wrote a LinkedIn article about my certification experience, hope it might help other people:

    Dear Mikhail,

    Thanks for setting up these quizzes.

    The question for “Please, select a time-box for each Scrum event” has wrong answers for Sprint Planning and Sprint Review. The should be in reverse as the Scrum Guide says:
    Scrum Review. This is at most a four-hour meeting for one-month Sprints.
    Sprint Planning. This is at most a three-hour meeting for one-month Sprints.

    Thanks again!

      Sprint Planning. -> Sprint *Retrospective

        Hi mimibar,

        Thanks for providing the feedback.

        Most likely, you faced this issue: https://mlapshin.com/index.php/blog/quiz-faq/#orderIt
        This is the way how the quiz engine shows incorrect questions for “order it” questions.

        Best Regards,
        –Mikhail

    Hi Mikhail,
    I passed PSM I yesterday. And in my preparation your quizzes played a very important role. Thank you for all the hard work.

    Any open assessment link for PSM-II

    1. mlapshin (Post author)

      Hi,

      I think, some questions in my quiz can be considered as level 2 questions. However, I do not have a special PSM II quiz.
      I know this web site contains 8 sample questions for PSM II.

      Thanks,
      –Mikhail

    Who should decide who will be the Scrum Master for a new Scrum Team?

    1. mlapshin (Post author)

      Of course the team should do this because in Scrum all teams are self-organizing.
