Displaying incorrect result for PM Challenge
Network:733



Hi All,

In PM Challenge, i have come across following question

How should project cost be measured?

* Different stakeholders will measure it different ways at different times.
* All stakeholders can measure in their own way, but they should all do it at the same time
* All stakeholders must maintain a consistent method of measuring and do so at the exact same time for the results to be valid
* None of the above

For above question, i had replied "Different stakeholders will measure it different ways at different times." But PM challenge says it as wrong answer and at the same time, in another option of same page, correct answer is mentioned as "Different stakeholders will measure it different ways at different times."

Similar issue i have observed yesterday as well. Even though i answered correctly, PM Challenge says it as wrong but correct answer is same as what i had given.

Tried to add screenshot, but i am unable to add screenshot.

Who will be taking care of PM challenge questions here?

It has been identified there are some questions which are not correct. I don't think there is anyone officially responsible for supporting the questions, however, I'm sure one of the community managers will take note and pass along.

@Vincent,

The questions have an interesting genealogy. As far as I can tell, they were written for PMBOK V3, then updated (mostly) for 2000, then V4, I updated them for V5, but you're correct, there are ones that don't come from the PMBOK, or actually a PMI standard. They're not super-difficult ones though.

I've been outed!

Hi Senthil, There is someone maintaining the PMChallenge questions -- and I know him very well. :) I believe the correct answer for that question is: "All stakeholders must maintain a consistent method of measuring and do so at the exact same time for the results to be valid."

This makes a lot of sense. If different stakeholders kept cost records using different methods, it would be chaos!

It is the explanation for that answer that is crazy by saying everyone should have a different method of measuring costs. It's fixed now.

"This makes a lot of sense. If different stakeholders kept cost records using different methods, it would be chaos! "

Was bit surprised and confused when PM challenge results displayed incorrect answer.

Thanks again for fixing this issue. Also, in case if i come across any such issue, i can still send to the Contact us email id with screenshot right?

Regards,
Senthil

Senthil,

Yes! Please send a screen shot, and a description of the problem to "contact us." They get it to me within just a few minutes and 1) they don't forget like I'm prone to do and 2) they assign a tracking number to your message.

Thank you for your interest!

Hi Dave,

I had sent one more query to them (This item i was bit confused). Question read as follows :

Which of the following are not activity attributes?

Logical relationships
Leads and Lags
Neither of these
Both of these

For above correct answer as per PM challenge is Neither of these (These are both activity attributes). If both of them are activity attributes, in Question "Not" should not come right?

Correct me if my understanding is wrong.
