The Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) assessment is the industry-standard qualification to validate your ability to support and enable value creation and delivery. It contains 80 questions in 60 minutes and takes the form of a multiple-choice examination which you can access online in your browser. All of the questions are presented in English however you are able to use an external plugin to translate to a language of your choice (these are not officially offered by Scrum.org, but anecdotally Google Translate is very accurate for translating the assessment questions).
If you have attended an accredited Professional Scrum Product Owner class with Optilearn or another provider, you will have been provided with a free code to take the assessment. We recommend you use this code within the first 14-days as should you fail, you will automatically be issued with a second attempt, free of charge. If you purchase an assessment code directly from Scrum.org, it does not expire and you can take it whenever you choose. There is no requirement for this examination to be proctored, nor no requirement for a webcam to record you whilst taking it.
The focus areas covered in the assessment are:
Now, you’re obviously here because you are trying (or considering) to pass the Professional Scrum Product Owner I and we want to provide you with our top tips to improve your chance of success:
Some of these tips above might resonate with you, and some might not – that’s okay. Everyone learns in different ways. Whenever you feel ready to attempt the assessment, we recommend you follow the link provided in the Scrum.org email that contains the code (there will be a link straight to the assessment). Ensure you have a quiet space, a stable internet connection, a drink and a pen and paper ready. On average, you will have 45 seconds per question which may not seem a lot, but you will likely find that many questions only take a few seconds. Utilise the ‘flag’ tool in the top right to highlight any questions you aren’t sure about because at the end, you can view any questions flagged to return to them quickly.
Our final piece of advice is to remember that this examination can only assess Professional Scrum as written in the Scrum Guide. The context at your organisation and any ‘realities’ you think might impact your answer should be put to one side, allowing you to provide an answer that is in-keeping with Scrum theory.
We wish you the best of luck with this assessment, and look forward to supporting your journey towards becoming PSPO I accredited however we can.
