There’s something about the word “certified” when it precedes a professional title that conveys the consumers and employers a sense of trust, credibility, knowledge and an official “stamp” of approval. This is not a coincidence. IT certification has long been a proven means of differentiation and qualification among professionals in the industry. Employers often include certification as a prerequisite when seeking qualified candidates to fill positions; consumers often trust only those IT professionals who boast credentials proving they have attained a certain level of knowledge.
Agile product development can cause unique challenges for those creating certifications used to validate skills and knowledge on technologies that are constantly changing. The challenge is developing psychometrically sound exams for IT products developed at an increasingly rapid pace. This document serves as a guide to communicate considerations of moving to an exam development and sustainment process that is aligned to rapid updates in the underlying technology and executed in a way that ensures valid, reliable, and fair assessment of candidates.
