After attending a two-day Certified ScrumMaster course, the final step in becoming a ScrumMaster (CSM) in Scrum is successfully passing an exam. The exam is taken online. You do not need to go to a testing facility.
The test comprises 35 multiple-choice questions and to fulfill Scrum Master certification requirements, you must get 24 or more correct. You will not take the test during the two-day course. Rather, you can take the test any time after the course.
If you do not pass the CSM exam, you will be shown the questions you missed, but not told the right answer. You will be expected to research the right answer. If you don't pass the test, you can take it a second time at no cost. The Scrum Alliance charges a small fee for each subsequent attempt after the second.
Plan on taking about an hour to complete the CSM exam, but you don't need to finish the test in one sitting. You can stop and restart as many times as needed. You can also skip, go back, and bookmark questions for later review. Review your bookmarked questions before submitting your test for scoring. When you click “submit” at the end, a warning message will alert you of any unanswered questions.
