Using precedent decisions to streamline assessments

Classification: Non-Health

Regulatory Body



This practice offers an approach to streamlining the assessment of qualifications.

Certified Management Accountants of Ontario created a grid which outlines precedent assessment decisions and simplifies the process of reviewing applicants' grades. The grid is for internal use.

Assessors may now review grades and make assessment decisions based on established rules. Previously these decisions were escalated to managers.

This change created a more efficient assessment process.
