The purpose of the work was the further development of a Shelter Management Contingency Game. The goal was to demonstrate the feasibility of the game as a training device, and so the main emphasis in the work consisted of the production and testing of a version of the game which could be used in shelter management training courses. The game, as developed, can be played by the individual student without the necessity of supervision by the instructor. Record-keeping procedures were established so that the students play can be reviewed and critiqued by the instructor upon conclusion of the game. The game was tested by members of the American Institutes for Research AIR research staff, and the results of these test plays are reported. In addition, copies of the game were sent to Office of Civil Defense field training personnel for review and comment. In general, the game appears to hold promise as a useful training device. Directions for further development of the game, particularly as a research tool, were discussed. Author
