The session introduction will include a brief overview of the history of NC2169 as well as the new and ongoing projects associated with this multistate project. The session will provide an update on the past year's efforts of NC2169 which focused largely on reliability and validity testing of the FPAQ. The session will also include an overview and timeline of the steps needed to establish the reliability and validity of the Spanish translation of the FPAQ. A recap about the group's accomplishments in addition to newer projects such as a national cost-effectiveness study of EFNEP and efforts to assess EFNEP's impact on the Quality of Life of program participants and paraprofessional educators would be discussed. In addition, coordinators will learn ways that they can help with current and future projects including how they can help with testing of the Spanish version of the FPAQ.
