Velocity is the sum of the estimates of delivered  per iteration.

Points from partially-completed or incomplete stories should not be counted in calculating velocity. Velocity should be tracked throughout the Sprint on the Sprint Burndown Chart and be made visible to all Team members. The slides below give a nice overview of how metrics are made visible.
Velocity is a key feedback mechanism for the Team. It helps them measure whether process changes they make are improving their productivity or hurting it. While a Team's velocity will oscillate from Sprint to Sprint, over time, a well-functioning Scrum Team's velocity should steadily trend upward by roughly 10% each Sprint.
Without Velocity, Release Planning is impossible. By knowing Velocity, a Product Owner can figure out how many Sprints it will take the Team to achieve a desired level of functionality that can then be shipped. Depending on the length of the Sprint, the Product owner can fix a date for the release.

Velocity is a measure of the amount of work a Team can tackle during a single Sprint and is the key metric in Scrum. Velocity is calculated at the end of the Sprint by totaling the Complexity Points for all fully completed User Stories in the sprint.

Connected to the principle of iterative development, velocity in Agile is used to measure how much work can be completed in each iteration. It is widely used as a calibration tool to help development teams create accurate and efficient timelines.
Velocity in Agile is not meant to be used as a goal or benchmark to strive for because it is measured relatively depending on what makes the most sense for the team measuring it. While maintaining consistency is ideal, Agile velocity is meant to be used mainly as a planning tool.

Velocity is how much work of the product backlogs a team can handle in one sprint.

Points should be considered:
Team size
Project complexity.
Interruptions and multitasking of team resource.
Sprint duration.

Velocity in Agile is a simple calculation measuring units of work completed in a given timeframe. Units of work can be measured in several ways, including engineer hours, user stories, or story points.

What's the difference between sprint backlog and product backlog?

Sprint Backlog: It is generally owned by the development team. It only contains those features and requirements that are related to the specific sprint only. It is considered a subset of the product backlog. It is compiled of everything that must be done to complete a particular sprint. It only includes items that can be completed during each agile sprint. It is specific to the sprint goal only in a particular sprint.
Product Backlog: It is generally owned and maintained by the project owner. It usually contains each and every feature of the product as well as the requirements of the product. It is compiled to everything that must be done to complete the whole process. It just breaks down every item into a series of steps. It is more specific to the end goal of the product.

1. What is the duration of a scrum sprint?
Answer: Generally, the duration of a scrum sprint (scrum cycle) depends upon the size of project and team working on it. The team size may vary from 3-9 members. In general, a scrum script complete in 3-4 weeks. Thus, on an average, the duration of a scrum sprint (scrum cycle) is 4 weeks. This type of sprint-based Agile scrum interview questions is very common in an agile or scrum master interview.

2. What is Velocity?
Answer: Velocity question is generally posed to understand if you have done some real work and familiar with the term. Its definition ?Velocity is the rate at which team progresses print by sprint? should be enough. You can also add saying the important feature of velocity that it can?t be compared to two different scrum teams.

3. What do you know about impediments in Scrum? Give some examples of impediments.
Answer: Impediments are the obstacles or issues faced by scrum team which slow down their speed of work. If something is trying to block the scrum team from their getting work ?Done? then it is an impediment. Impediments can come in any form. Some of the impediments are given as ?

Resource missing or sick team member
Technical, operational, organizational problems
Lack of management supportive system
Business problems
External issues such as weather, war etc
Lack of skill or knowledge
While answering impediments related agile scrum interview questions remember that you may be asked the way to remove any of the mentioned impediment.

4. What is the difference and similarity between Agile and Scrum?
Answer: Difference between Agile and Scrum ? Agile is a broad spectrum, it is a methodology used for project management while Scrum is just a form of the Agile that describes the process and its steps more concisely. Agile is a practice whereas scrum is a procedure to pursue this practice.

The similarity between Agile and Scrum ? The Agile involves completing projects in steps or incrementally. The Agile methodology is considered to be iterative in nature. Being a form of Agile, Scrum is same as that of the Agile. It is also incremental and iterative.

5. What is the increment? Explain.
PMI ACP Free Test

Answer: This is one of the commonly asked agile scrum interview questions and a quick answer can be given this way. An increment is the total of all the product backlogs items completed during a sprint. Each increment includes all the previous sprint increment values as it is cumulative. It must be in the available mode in the subsequent release as it is a step to reach your goal.

elocity is a metric that is used to determine the amount of work that can be successfully completed by a team during a sprint. The team would add up the effort estimation associated with every user story that was completed within the said sprint and come up with a total, this total is the velocity. This would serve as an accurate estimation technique to determine the time that would take for the project to be completed.
