Assessor / Consultant Toolkit

RIM has developed the Graduation Model Assessment Toolkit as a step-by-step guide for the contracting party and the assessors implementing the Model’s assessment process within an MFI. This toolkit is divided into three distinct sections:

1. Overview
2. Administrative Guide
3. Technical Guide

The Administrative Guide is aimed at Graduation Model assessors as well as contracting parties and provides guidance on the administration of the Model’s assessments, including subsections related to gaining buy-in, negotiating and contracting, and post-assessment administration.

The Technical Guide, is aimed at Graduation Model assessors and provides guidance on the technical implementation of the Model’s assessment methodology. This includes off-site preparation, on-site assessment, analyzing results, the Institutional Graduation Path Workshop, and concluding the assessor’s visit. At each of these steps, the Toolkit is accompanied by practical tips and tools that should inform the assessor’s implementation of the Graduation Model Assessment.
