The goal of the project was to develop the experimental design and supporting materials and procedures for a research project intended to identify and validate predictors of effective management behavior under threat stress. The product of the project is a Study Plan intended to be implemented as a laboratory study of the effects of threat stress on human leadershipmanagement behavior, representing the situation of a shelter manager in an actual disaster. Included in the project was a small pilot study to evaluate the methodology and materials that were developed for the Study Plan. The project involved the development of certain prototype items for a shelter manager seselection battery and a management performance battery, as well as the development of the research methodology itself.
