A Guide to Understanding Your Microsoft Score Reports
The score report in the Microsoft Exams gives you an idea of how to look at the areas you score good in and the areas you scored bad in, AZ-900 was my 1st role-based exam, and this is where I would recommend people start off.
If you’ve Taken Microsoft exams before you should be familiar with these already, each area is broken down into % per the exam scope document.
In the az-900 there are 5 lines in the report each line measures a distance in the exam and the bar going across measures your level of understanding.
In every exam you should be aiming for about 800, some exams will be better than others.
Remember its not a competition to score the most in the exams and some do better then others , once you pass your exam you have achieved the required score Microsoft wants for people taking the exams , each exam is an opportunity for improvement.
At the beginning of the new role-based exams Microsoft started with just the bars and %.
As time went on And Microsoft began to capture more about the exams, they have added a
How Your Performance Compares to those who have taken the exam section.
All This is important in your development, you will need to better understand these as time goes on.
You should be aiming as you take each exam to do better, you can see here my scores went from

What we can see here is i having been getting better and better in the different exams this is because i focus on the areas i require improvement , while there small jumps each time there positive moves forward and this is why reading the reports is important and looking at the areas your weakest in.
For the Finale we can see i took the below exam
