Won’t the GAM generate different answers according to the rigor and the comprehension of the examiners?

A:   The GAM is not a test! The main purpose of the GAM is to encourage thinking and learning, to help humanitarians decide how to improve their projects. How the examiners understand the questions doesn’t matter.

The GAM provides topics and questions for project teams to discuss, reflect on, and decide if there are ways they can improve the project.  It can be completed by a single monitoring officer, but users report it is most beneficial when project teams work together to complete the exercise.

Nobody is going to apply the GAM to your project (this is very different from the old gender marker.)

YOU decide if YOU are happy with how gender and age concerns are reflected in your project.  The GAM merely guides a reflective, learning process.
