Hi,

I'm sitting the MS 70-216 exam tomorrow and was trying to find out what the actual pass mark, percentage wise was.

Am currently looking on the net, no-luck thus far....

Can anyone assist please??

Thanks.

If its adaptive, my experance with Novel's (I know he said Microsoft :))adaptive testing is it will continue untill
1. You have passed and no futher testing is needed
2. Failed beyound the point of no return

Also Novel adaptive tests gauge the reponse to question ie incorrect answer will get you a easier next question based on the same subject objective but also a lower point value for that question. Get a string of them right you pass or the questions get harder until you do (pass) oh the harder the question the higher point value (if you get it correct)

Hi Guy's....

All i really wanted to know is if anyone knows what Microsofts Pass Marks are for their exams in %....

As for the adaptive thing, to the best of my knowledge, MS don't use adaptive testing as I have just completed the 70-215 Win2K Server and that wasen't adaptive....

The only adaptive exams I've done is the A+ Hardware & Software, but CompTIA have now moved away from adaptive testing also.....

Thanks...

Not quite,they just recently(a couple months ago)updated the questions for the qualifications,Then for the first couple months they drop the adaptive tests untill enough people have sat the new tests to give comptia enough data on what questions are easy and whch are hard,then they use this data to calculate the scores on the new adaptive tests.

Which are probally being implemented as we speak,or as i type,whatever.

Thanks dude,

Great site, will keep it as a handy ref for my next ones.
Only thing is that it gives what the pass mark is but not what it is out of...or a percentage....one of the chaps at work reckons all the Microsoft ones leading to MCSE 2000 are 60%.....any one any different?

Thanks again!

the harder the exam the lower the passmark. For the W2k Pro exam the PM is around 80% based on the old info that was on the MS web site about a year and a half ago, but they do not give out what the actual passmark is any more so most people are guessing. unless they work for one of the testing certifiers.

Am about to sit 70-216 in the next week or so.
any good? I've been told it is a pain in the toosh.
