UPDATE: This survey is now closed.  Thanks to all who took it!

We need volunteers to help us design Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) Exam 374, Gaming Development Fundamentals.

We've collected initial information about relevant tasks and compiled them into an Objective Domain (OD), or exam design document. The OD includes a description of the MTA certification, the target audience for this exam, and a list of content areas, or functional groups, that begin with a single number.  Below each functional group is a set of objectives, each of which begins with two numbers (e.g., 1.1) and includes a scoping statement (“This objective may include but is not limited to”).

Your feedback on this OD will be used to revise and finalize it.  Exam questions will be written to each objective, so it’s important that the objectives be appropriate for the audience level, relevant, and clear. Your feedback on the OD is an excellent opportunity to influence the exam and help us get the design right!

We’re using a survey tool to facilitate the collection and organization of comments about the OD.
