eXtension Leads Development of Farm Bill Evaluation Tool


eXtension, USDA’s Farm Services Administration (FSA), and the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) have developed an evaluation and reporting tool for the 2014 Title 1 Producer Education Program of the 2014 Farm Bill. eXtension, in cooperation with the ECOP office, created a way to manipulate the data gathered from completing two types of online meeting evaluation forms. Craig Wood, Ashley Griffin, and their eXtension colleagues have completed testing of a streamlined process to make it easier for cooperating institutions to meet a portion of the FSA reporting requirements.

As a reminder, all institutions receiving Title 1 funds must provide the name and email address of the person who will be responsible for reporting. Please submit here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/17b4C8ZHf7EKW8DLizT0o45GTkwcpbep6qGPrs5LwlX8/edit?usp=sharing. The person named will receive instructions on how to submit data using the online tool. Questions may be directed to Craig Wood at craig.wood@extension.org.
