DEVOPS-PROD | DevOps Product Owner
Recent developments in IT methodologies have given rise to a spate of concepts such as Agile, Scrum, DevOps, and Lean IT.

A classification widely used when designing assessments for certification and education is the Bloom’s Taxonomy of
Educational Objectives. This classifies learning objectives into six ascending learning levels, each defining a higher
degree of competencies and skills. (Bloom et al, 1956, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives).
This structured approach helps to ensure:
- A clear segregation in learning level content between the
- different qualification levels.
- Learning outcomes are documented consistently across
- different areas of the program.
- Exam questions and papers are consistent and are created to a
- similar level of difficulty.
The Professional qualification examines learning outcomes at levels 1(Knowledge), 2 (Comprehension), 3 (Application), and 4 (Analysis).
