Elizabeth, UK There is nothing wrong with exams at the end of term. In conclusion, I agree that exams are unfair assessments of progress because the pressure caused by exams is too large, the result of exams is unreliable and the purpose of studying is misunderstood.
A very real worry is that students will be burnt out by meaningless exams before they reach the ones that really matter!! Jeffrey Archer has been economical with the truth over his academic bona fides. Coursework sounds like a good idea in theory, but is open to abuse.
Nicola I feel that although in certain subject areas it may be necessary to examine students to determine their final grades, a continuous assessment system would be much more beneficial, and fairer.
For example, will I get an incompetent or an over-generous examiner?
Brendan Fernandes, UK I will be undertaking my AS exams in just over a week and do feel that too much importance is placed on exams. Here I do not agree. A team practices pair programming. The change request procedure was not diligently followed C The PMO and its project managers have not been engaged adequately causing the project plan to become inaccurate D The Product Owner has not been interacting frequently with stakeholders keeping them aware of the progress.
No one tell the Dev team how to turn Product backlog into increment of potentially releasable functionality. However, there are helping techniques. Scrum does not have a Project Manager role.
They can get good results in their exams without studying hard if they are lucky. This is my personal opinion, and I am not suggesting anyone follow suit. There has to be some sort of methodology, and I think that examinations have proven to be the best form. I am 23 years left school, but we did mock exams, test papers and questions 6 to 12 months leading up to exams.
Criticism[ edit ] The MCAS has been criticized for being too narrow in nature and for pressuring teachers into restricting the curriculum to material covered by the tests.
Non-functional requirements describe qualities of the system being developed. Budget, velocity and productivity do not contribute directly to capturing Product value. Then the PO will communicate with the Stakeholders, resolve it and communicate solution back to the team.
Shiv Kak, India If the government expects us to believe that it is sensible to make kids sit endless exams, then it is up to them to show us the evidence that it works.
Furthermore only during exam time can the real life pressure be simulated in the class-room. The three main reasons for me to believe that exams are unfair assessments of progress are: Examinations should appear annually, but no more than that.

Although resit outcomes are typically capped at the passing score we argue that they still afford an unfair advantage. We conclude that where resit opportunities are provided then they should have higher pass marks than first sit attempts. However, we recommend that the stress of high stakes exams, and thus resits, should be avoided.
During sprint review stakeholders notice that the product development progress is not very clearly visible and lacked transparency.
Moreover, they are not able to understand the next steps. Who is responsible for this? Mikhail: The Product Owner is responsible for this. In the Scrum Guide you can find that the PO is responsible for.Download
