PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) is a brand new certification offered by PMI. The PMI-ACP certification is going to be introduced on the third quarter of 2011. It has been targeted towards those organizations and individuals that are practicing agile on there projects. PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) will demonstrate further professional ability in the field of agile project management.
Although the certification is very new and quite few information is available but in this blog post we will try to cover PMI-ACP Exam Format i.e: exam questions, duration, result and the knowledge that you will be tested on in the exam.
PMI-ACP Exam Format
There are 120 questions on the exam, but not every question score is counted towards the last result. 20 of the questions are considered as pre test questions. Hence your final score result will be based on the 100 correct answers.
There are 3 hours to complete the exam, but before the clock ticking starts, there are 15 minutes prior of the 3 hours given to you and I stress that those 15 minutes, which are not counted in the 3 hours should be very well utilized.
The result will be either pass or fail and you will not be notified of the actual answers that you score either right or wrong. Rather you will be given a printed sheet but in this sheet besides pass/fail, you will be given a domain score that you have achieved in each of the domains.
Domains and Score:
The domain scores are basically your strongest and weakest areas in the shape of Proficient, moderately proficient and below proficient, that you have achieved in each area.
I hope PMI-ACP Exam Format that been clear to you by now, If there’s something that is not clear, please feel free to comment or ask in the Discussion Forum.
