Can ChatGPT Pass the Microsoft SC-900 Practice Test?March 10, 2023 by Vlad Catrinescu 0 Comments As technology continues to advance, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly prevalent in various industries. One area where AI has shown promise is in the field of IT certifications. In this blog, we will explore:What is ChatGPT?What’s covered in the Microsoft SC-900 Exam?Testing ChatGPT against the first 10 exam questions of the Microsoft SC-900 practice testDid ChatGPT pass?My thoughts on the resultsFor more on the impact of AI, watch my Pluralsight session,“The IT Ops Sessions: The Effect of ChatGPT and AI on the World of IT Certification.”What is ChatGPT? Before we dive into the results, it’s important to understand what ChatGPT is. Simply put, it’s an AI language model developed by OpenAI that is capable of generating human-like responses to text prompts. It has been trained on a massive dataset of text from the internet and is capable of generating coherent and contextually relevant responses to a wide range of prompts. What’s Covered in the SC-900 Exam? Now, let’s talk about the SC-900 Microsoft certification exam. This exam is designed to test a candidate’s knowledge of Microsoft’s security, compliance, and identity solutions. It is intended for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in IT security or who are responsible for implementing and managing security solutions in their organization. Testing ChatGPT against the SC-900 Practice ExamThe SC 900 practice exam covers a range of topics, including Microsoft’s security solutions, compliance regulations, and identity management. We used the first 10 questions from the practice exam to determine ChatGPT’s potential of passing the practice test. To conduct the test, we input each question into ChatGPT and evaluated its response. We then compared ChatGPT’s response to the correct answer provided by Microsoft. We repeated this process for all 10 questions. Did ChatGPT Pass? The results of the test were surprising. ChatGPT was able to answer 8 out of the 10 questions correctly. This means that if ChatGPT were to take the SC-900 exam, it could potentially pass with a score of 80%. It’s important to note that ChatGPT was not specifically trained on the content of the SC-900 exam. Instead, it was trained on a massive dataset of text from the internet. This means that ChatGPT’s ability to answer the questions correctly was based solely on its ability to understand the context of the questions and generate a relevant response. My Thoughts on the Microsoft SC-900 Practice Test Results While the results of this test are impressive, it’s important to keep in mind that ChatGPT is not a substitute for human expertise.ChatGPT can’t take the Microsoft SC-900 exam, or any other exam for youThe SC-900 exam is designed to test a candidate’s knowledge of Microsoft’s security, compliance, and identity solutions. It requires a deep understanding of these topics and the ability to apply that knowledge in real-world scenarios. In addition, the exams have proctors so don’t get any funny ideas. ChatGPT, on the other hand, is an AI language model that is capable of generating responses based on the context of a given prompt. While it can provide useful information and insights, it cannot replace the expertise of a human who has a deep understanding of the subject matter. That being said, the results of this test do suggest that ChatGPT has the potential to be a useful tool for individuals who are simply looking to understand how studying for the SC-900 exam. However, if you’re looking to truly learn, take a look at my SC-900 Pluralsight learning path and study guide. These cover Microsoft identity and access, concepts of security compliance, and all other topics covered in the SC-900. How can organizations use ChatGPT in the world of certifications?ChatGPT could be used as a tool for organizations to assess the knowledge of their employees. By inputting questions related to their security, compliance, and identity solutions, organizations can evaluate their employees’ understanding of these topics and identify areas where additional training may be needed. Final thoughtsIt’s important to note that while ChatGPT was able to answer 8 out of the 10 questions correctly, there were still some areas where it struggled. For example, one of the questions asked about the best way to prevent different departments from talking to each other. ChatGPT’s response was not relevant to the question and did not provide the correct answer. This highlights the limitations of ChatGPT and the importance of human expertise in certain areas. While ChatGPT is capable of generating responses based on the context of a given prompt, it may not always provide the most accurate or relevant information. Conclusion and Summary In conclusion, testing ChatGPT against the first 10 questions of the Microsoft SC-900 certification exam yielded some interesting results. While ChatGPT was able to answer 8 out of the 10 questions correctly, it’s important to keep in mind that it is not a substitute for human expertise. ChatGPT has the potential to be a useful tool for individuals who are studying for the SC-900 exam or for organizations to assess the knowledge of their employees. However, it should be used in conjunction with other study materials and should not be relied upon as the sole source of information. As technology continues to advance, it will be interesting to see how AI language models are used in IT. While they may not replace human expertise, they could provide a valuable tool for individuals and organizations looking to assess their knowledge and understanding of complex topics.
