The ratings agency's originator assessment is designed to determine if an originator's future loan performance will be the same, better or worse than the historical performance based on its current lending practices and financial stability, without regard to servicer ability or prevailing macroeconomic conditions after loans are originated.

Moody's originator assessment scale consists of Strong, Above Average, Average, Below Average and Weak.
