The Pedigree Analysis Worksheet answers the questions that the grading and audit officers want to know. It gives them the best possible information that they can use in determining what your CGC report will be like.
The first thing that they are going to look at is the learning curve. What do you think they are going to want to learn about the pedigrees of the individual horses that are graded. This will tell them how much experience you have with grading horses and what your expectations are.
They will also want to know if you have any knowledge on how you are grading the horses. If you grade from a scale that does not have any numerical value that indicates that the horse is below average or above average it will affect your grading. The grading scale will help them determine if you think it is a fair or not.
Answer these questions honestly so they can compare the information they are getting from you to the answers given by other people in the field. In doing this they will be able to judge if the information you give them is accurate. They are looking for exact answers to their questions. If you do not think you are giving them the answers they are looking for they will ask you to provide them with the information they need.
Answer all of the questions honestly. They will want to know if you use formulas, numerals, or what the grading scale will be. If you are using formulas you may not be giving them the accurate answer to the question that they are asking. If you are using numerals or if the grading scale is not an accurate way to evaluate the horse that you are grading then it will not be accurate to others.
Answer the questions as if you were a volunteer for the class. This will show that you are truly interested in the grading and auditing business. You will not feel embarrassed for providing them with the information that they want. You will feel more comfortable in answering the questions because you really are interested in knowing what you are grading.
Answer each question in your own words and do not be afraid to be wrong. Answer the questions without trying to get them to change the scale or label. It is your job to make sure that the questions are answered truthfully and accurately. You want to be on their good side and help them the best you can.
Give them the answers that they need to know so they can compare the answers to the information provided by others and decide if the answers that you give are right or not. You will be satisfied when you know the answers to the questions that the grading and audit officers are asking you and be able to answer them with confidence.
