Do the questions that have you rearrange a list of tasks give partial credit
when you have some of the tasks listed correctly, or is it all or nothing?

Thanks,

Vancouver

Hi Vancouver,

On Microsoft exams partial answers give you zero credit, with very few
exceptions. You can either get the question right or get the question wrong,
and there is no in between.

Good luck!

and form the following words:

Nobody can tell you because it would violate the NDA that we all must agree
to before starting the exam.

That's good to know. I was asking a general question about scoring methods,
but If that constitutes a ND violation I shall refrain.

Until nextime...

Are you sure about this, M ? I recall reading somewhere that one does
get partial credit. Unfortunately, I can't recall where I read that !

Hi Vancouver (Greetings from the French part of the country!)

I am not violating NDAs by saying it is all or nothing. If I were to tell
you in detail how the exams are scored I would also not be violating NDAs,
only because nobody outside of Microsoft knows the answer and I would be
lying out of my posterior. When I was part of an exam creation team I was
very carefully briefed on what I could share and what I could not, and this
is cut and dry: No half marks.

Hello Cerebrus,

The reason I asked is that you did get partial credit back in the 90's when
I was taking my MCSE exams for NT. It was for the "choose all that apply"
multiple answer questions. I just don't know about the newer "list in the
correct order" questions.

Hello Montreal,

It's Vancovuer, WA, USA, near Portland, OR. However, sometimes I wish it
was BC. It's beautiful up there!

Adieu!

Well, this is something worthy of archiving for future newbs. Don't think
I've heard anything more than speculation about this before. My apologies
for doubting you.
