This report contains survey instruments and instructions developed to support an assessment of the 1992 BOLD SHIFT reserve training program. The first phase of the assessment was designed to focus primarily on two types of issues: (1) description of unit training activities; and (2) commanders' and soldiers' perceptions of the program. Five survey instruments were developed, focusing on unit training, battalion and brigade staff training, Operational Readiness Exercises, and Unit Leader Battle Skills Courses. The surveys were administered during the late summer and early fall of 1992. Analysis of the results, in conjunction with other data, is intended to provide a comprehensive view of the various initiatives that made up BOLD SHIFT and of their potential for improving Reserve Component unit readiness in the future.
