A three-volume package of integrated shelter management material was recently produced for application to shelter management training, shelter planning, and in-shelter management. This report deals with an experiment to obtain empirical data on the individual effectiveness of these documents as well as the impact of various combinations of these materials on shelter planning and shelter management. The dependent variables involved in the experiment were performance on a Shelter Planning Test and a Shelter Management Test. The independent variables included shelter management training, use of a shelter occupancy exercise, shelter planning orientation and planning experience, the presence or absence of shelter management guidance, the nature of the shelter situation, and the background student vs. executive of the subjects. The relationship of mental ability to both of the dependent variables also was measured and controlled.
