    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Velocity:

    • A.

      Is measured in task hours

    • B.

      Is a measure of a teams rate of progress

    • C.

      Is a metric used to compare team performance

    • D.

      Is not affected when a change in scope is made

    Correct Answer
    B. Is a measure of a teams rate of progress
    Explanation
    Velocity is used to understand the amount of work a team can complete within a sprint period and is a measure used for release planning. Sprints are based on task hours. Velocity rates are specific to a team and should not be used to compare team performance. Velocity is affected when a change in scope is made; before items are added to a sprint this point needs to be considered.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A team committed to 3 stories in a 3-week sprint. The Product Owner accepted the 3 stories completed by the team; each story was estimated at 5 points. The team velocity is:

    • A.

      3

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    C. 15
    Explanation
    Velocity = Total number of story points accepted at the end of a sprint.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    A team has 30 stories targeted for a release. The total number of points for the release is 140. WIth an average velocity of 18, how sprints will be needed for the release?

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      18

    • C.

      30

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    D. 8
    Explanation
    Total story points assigned to stories divided by velocity yields duration. 140/18 = 7.777 (8)

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The most important defect metric we want to learn from is:

    • A.

      Defects found during a sprint

    • B.

      Defects found during the hardening sprint

    • C.

      Defects found in production

    • D.

      The age of all defects per product

    Correct Answer
    C. Defects found in production
    Explanation
    Defects found during a sprint are important, but not a metric we want to focus on as teams should be resolving these within the sprint; defects found during the hardening sprint are important to measure the quality of testing in previous sprints, the ultimate measure, as always, will come from customers in production.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

    The ultimate goals of agile testing is to improve the software. Agile testing focuses on continuously improving the quality of the software by identifying and addressing defects, enhancing the user experience, and delivering value to the customers. While finding bugs and executing tests are important aspects of agile testing, they are not the ultimate goals. Automating tests is also beneficial in agile testing but not the sole objective. The primary aim is to enhance the software by incorporating feedback, adapting to changes, and delivering a high-quality product.

    Rate this question:

  • 18.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Testers are an integral part of the team; focus is to deliver a quality, shippable product at the end of each sprint that achieves "done" without added technical debt. Testers are accountable to the team, product owner and business.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Without a separate test strategy and test plan, it's hard to manage testing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Specific test activities are defined at sprint planning; a separate test plan may not be required; a test strategy can define overall Agile testing practices and techniques that are followed across teams where each team adopts the practices that work best for them for a given project.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    The value of testing is only realized when defects are logged.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The value of testing is in early detection of defects and achieving "done". In agile, the number of defects logged during development is no longer a focus; the focus is now on delivering the value and having customer accept stories for delivery each sprint.

    What is the difference between a release and a sprint?

    • A.

      A sprint contains many releases

    • B.

      A release consists of many sprints

    • C.

      Each is mutually exclusive

    Correct Answer
    B. A release consists of many sprints
    Explanation
    A release consists of many sprints, meaning that a release is a collection of multiple sprints that have been completed. A sprint, on the other hand, is a time-boxed period during which a specific set of work or tasks is completed. While a release represents a larger milestone or goal, consisting of several sprints, a sprint is a shorter, focused period of work within that release.

    Teams that do not implement sprint retrospectives are still considered agile becuase they work in sprints.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If your team is not performing sprint retrospectives and making improvements each sprint then you are not truly practicing the agile mindset; working in sprints does not make a team agile.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    Test automation is impossible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Test automation in the early stages of an agile transition is usually very tough, but as the team evolves and settles, the right time to implement automation will arrive. At the start, almost all testing from a user and QA perspective will be manual, but the team should keep automation at the top of the priority list to address.
