ASC 2021:Editor's Preface

This volume contains the papers presented at the Associated Schools of Construction 57th Annual International Conference hosted by California State University - Chico on April 5 - 9, 2021.

There were 100 submissions. Each submission went through a double-blind review process and was reviewed by an average of 3.5 external reviewers and 2 program committee members. Based on the review process, 71 papers were accepted. Publication in the ASC proceedings represents an important milestone of accomplishment for the authors due to the rigorous review process.

The ASC International Proceedings of the Annual Conference provides for the dissemination of research that enhances and improves teaching and learning processes within construction education and construction practice. Papers submitted to the Annual Proceedings contribute to understanding of the issues, problems, and research associated with the construction industry and construction education. The Proceedings is published once each year for the international conference.

The editor would like to thank the ASC Board of Directors, Associate Proceedings Editors, the ASC Webmaster Carlos Sterling, and especially the External Reviewers that graciuosly volunteered their time to provide constructive reviews of the submitted papers. It is the efforts of all these individuals that make these proceedings possible.
