PMI-ACP : PMI Agile Certified Practitioner : Part 02

  1. Which layer of the product planning structure defines details at the capability or feature level?

    • Iteration
    • Roadmap
    • Release
    • Wave
  2. In an Agile approach, at which meeting does a team examine the effectiveness of risk responses by conducting a risk audit?

    • Release planning
    • Sprint planning
    • Sprint Retrospective
    • Daily Scrum
  3. The ScrumMaster and the Product Owner disagree on the value of a Product Backlog item. In order to resolve the disagreement, the first step the ScrumMaster should take is to ask:

    • The Product Owner to clarify the requirement.
    • The business owner to resolve the problem.
    • The business analyst to research the product value.
    • Another project manager how to resolve the problem.
  4. Which management style does Agile advocate?

    • Task
    • Team
    • Product
    • Performance
  5. Collaboration can be defined as working together to jointly produce a deliverable or make a decision, whereas coordination is:

    • Agreeing on a due date.
    • Sharing information.
    • Agreeing on the design.
    • Pair programming.
  6. Project managers use velocity to determine:

    • If the team is committing to an appropriate amount of work for the iteration.
    • How much work each team member is capable of completing during an iteration.
    • How much work teams that are similar in size are capable of completing during an iteration.
    • If the Product Owner is prioritizing work appropriately in preparation for iteration planning.
  7. The most powerful capability of Scrum teams is that they:

    • Work in timeboxed sprints.
    • Are self-organized and empowered.
    • Work from a prioritized backlog.
    • Value individuals and interactions.
  8. Which type of story would be used when an estimate is not available due to lack of knowledge of the technology required to implement the story?

    • Defect
    • Slack
    • Spike
    • Nonfunctional
  9. What is the responsibility of an extreme Programming (XP) customer role?

    • Testing the daily increments of the software developed
    • Writing the stories and acceptance tests for each story
    • Planning and task allocation for the developer and tester
    • Interacting closely with users and representing the XP team
  10. When is the ideal time to hold a retrospective?

    • Right after iteration planning
    • Just before iteration planning
    • At the start of the next release
    • During the iteration review/demo
  11. Refactoring, as it applies to the practice of extreme Programming (XP), refers to:

    • Restructuring the estimate by applying a higher cost performance index during ¡°what if¡± analysis.
    • Modifying the project due to scope changes, resource availability, and cost and schedule variances.
    • Modifying the cost baseline due to an increased estimate at completion and a negative cost variance.
    • Restructuring of code so as to improve the code without changing its external behavior.
  12. Which of the following would be most likely to assist when a customer has difficulty prioritizing stories?

    • Split the stories into smaller ones to allow the customer to choose the pieces that they want.
    • Have the team provide guidance into where their priorities lie to the customer.
    • Provide additional technical details to give the customer insight into technical challenges.
    • Have the team rewrite the stories with additional details to clarify requirements.
  13. When interacting with team members, the Agile project manager should:

    • Ask team members to do things by phrasing the statement as a request rather than as a demand.
    • Ignore team member input and emotions when important decisions have to be made.
    • Proceed cautiously when requesting team members to do something likely to make them unhappy.
    • Disagree with the team based on the merit of the issue without considering how the team is feeling.
  14. Which best describes the attributes of the IN VEST criteria in a user story?

    • Incremental, Net, Variation, Exceed, Scope, and Training
    • Interdependent, Nonfunctional, Value, Exploratory, Sprint, and Timebox
    • Innovation, Nested, Vision, Estimating, Scalable, and Team
    • Independent, Negotiable, Valuable, Estimable, Small, and Testable
  15. A user story says that a product must be very fast. During the demo, the Product Owner is dissatisfied with the speed of the product. The most likely reason that this occurred is because the user story was:

    • Too large.
    • Not estimated correctly.
    • Not testable.
    • Not descriptive of the value.
  16. Team A is producing 61 points per iteration and Team B is producing 20 points per iteration. Team A has more senior engineers. A manager demands that Team B match Team A’s points in the next iteration. Based on this information, it is reasonable to tell the manager that:

    • it is impossible to compare two separate teams on points alone.
    • Team B’s points will match Team A if Team B gets more senior engineers.
    • Team B must have help self-organizing so their points match Team A.
    • Team B’s points will increase if the Product Owner becomes more involved.
  17. Which of the following is a list of valid Agile project planning practices?

    • Release planning, Iteration planning, and Estimation
    • Estimation, Spike Solutions, and Iteration planning
    • Iteration planning, Continuous Integration, and Estimation
    • Vision, Release planning, and Performance Optimization
  18. Who is responsible for prioritizing the stories that will be included in the iteration?

    • ScrumMaster
    • Developer
    • Product Owner
    • Team
  19. On a project using eXtreme Programming (XP), a customer test is a:

    • Technique to determine if the software is easy for customer use.
    • Tool for a customer to verify the business requirements.
    • Technique to determine if a customer will use a software feature.
    • Test for determining if a customer will purchase the product.
  20. What is the best description of the relationship between Scrum and extremeProgramming(XP)?

    • XP is a component of Scrum.
    • The principles of each are often complementary.
    • Scrum is a component of XP.
    • The principles of each are often contradictory.
