The first phase of a study to assess the extent to which eXtension is having a transformative effect on the Cooperative Extension System has been completed. Phase 1 of the evaluation focused on identifying what Extension staff is doing differently as a result of eXtension. Two sources of data were used for the evaluation: 1) entries from the transformation section of CoP Profiles submitted in 2009 and 2) individual interviews with CoP members. Based on the data acquired in this project, without question, eXtension is having a transformative effect in changing the manner in which these individuals do their Extension work.
