MS research is working on a device that looks like a hand-held pepper grinder.  And it requires no batteries!  (It looks a bit like a fisher-price style WII remote)

MSL has recorded a couple of meetings surrounding certification exams– how they are developed, what is up-coming, why it’s important, etc.  I just attended the 201 LIVE meeting and found it very useful.  Some highlights:

  • Virtualization exams for Server and desktops are coming out this month- March
  • MS exam objectives are not developed over lunch!  They go through a rigorous- ongoing process.
  • Every comment during a BETA exam is read by Krista! (Exam content developer manager)
  • Not every comment is read of a live exam because there’s just too many- but they are regularly sampled
  • 80/80 rule =questions focus on tasks that 80% of the people do 80% of the time- real-world matters in the exams!
  • EXAMS are not post-tests to any training materials– information isn’t shared between exam writers and training content writers
  • Trick questions are a MYTH!  Subtext doesn’t exist.
  • 700 does not EQUAL 70%!  Scores are scaled based on difficulty and comparison.

The 201 meeting also covered the basic formula for their questions, their intentions, and tips on how to process a question.   You should be able to find these videos on the born to learn site. 

Great stuff!
