TWO SIMILAR CLASSROOMS WERE SET UP IN THE LENNOX LIVING LABORATORY, DES MOINES, IOWA, ONE FOR EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS AND ONE FOR CONTROL GROUPS. TEMPERATURE, AIR CIRCULATION AND HUMIDITY CAN BE CONTROLLED AND MEASURED IN BOTH ROOMS. THE ROOMS ARE OF SIMILAR SIZE, LAYOUT AND CONSTRUCTION, THE THERMAL ENVIRONMENT BEING THE ONLY VARIABLE. THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS WERE STUDIED IN THE EXPERIMENTAL SCHOOLHOUSE--(1) IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOYS' AND GIRLS' REPORTED COMFORT. (2) IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOYS' AND GIRLS' REPORTED FEELINGS OF COMFORT IN THE SAME ENVIRONMENT. (3) WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY ON REPORTED STUDENT COMFORT. (4) WHAT IS THE ACTUAL OPERATING TIME OF THE HEATING, COOLING, AND VENTILATING EQUIPMENT WHEN MAINTAINING THE IDEAL THERMAL ENVIRONMENT. RESULTS ARE GIVEN TO THESE FOUR QUESTIONS. (RH)
