Microsoft moves to more practical testing of MCP skills
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 3/15/2005 09:53:00 AM.

Microsoft has changed its certification process, moving away from multiple-choice exams towards more practical assessment of IT problem solving.

Most large IT departments rely on the Microsoft certified professional (MCP) qualification as a guarantee of aptitude using Microsoft technologies, but until now it has tested candidates on multiple-choice questionnaires. Because candidates can pass these simply by memorising facts, departments are left with little idea of their practical abilities.

Philip Virgo, strategic advisor at IT lobby group the Institute for the Management of Information Systems, said, "Multiple-choice testing is widespread and it is an issue not just confined to Microsoft. Most large-scale, low-cost qualifications rely on multiple-choice questionnaires and there has been a lot of grumbling about that.

"In reality most people do not do much practical assessment - at the end of a course they do a multiple choice exam. All that proves is that they attended the course and were awake."
