During your CSP-D course, you must demonstrate a mastery of scrum and agile development practices by passing a CSP-D assessment provided by your educator. The assessment may be an exam administered by the educator to test your knowledge, or it may be an active, classroom-based assessment. For more information about this assessment, please review the course description for the CSP-D class you’re interested in taking.
