This paper presents the results of research that was conducted to investigate how well individual XP practices are recognized and applied in real projects. Refactoring was recognized as an XP practice that is the most difficult to implement. An empirical experiment was carried out to quantify shares of programming activities such as testing, refactoring and adding new functionalities. A simple tool was developed to automate the activity tracking needed to gather quantitative data.
