“The BSD Certification Group is a non-profit organization established to create and maintain a global certification standard for system administration on BSD-based operating systems. After a year of work, the group behind the BSD Certification project plans to complete the process for the first certification (BSD Associate) in the first half of this year, with the first exam to be available by the second quarter. We interviewed Dru Lavigne, BSD advocate and creator of the initiative.”

Dru mentions psychometric review of the exam throughout the article, what exactly does she mean by this and why is it important? Are they trying to embed questions with an ulterior psychological meaning as to gain information about the testers mental mentality? Or something completely different?
Only read through half the article before I posted.
Yes, this is offtopic but I love her (and her work). Her articles on O’Reilly’s website has really increased my knowledge of Unix and I always enjoy reading them.
If you get the chance, check out her stuff at the O’Reilly website.
Dru is great. BSD users have been waiting for some type of standard certification for a long time.
