DuVall, Charles R.; And Others
The focus of this study was teacher assessment of several factors relating to selected materials provided by the American Iron and Steel Institute. The design and rationale, instrumentation, methodology, and questionnaire mailing are discussed in Chapter I.

The study analyzes the mail returns, the receipt of materials, their level of use, reason for requesting, their use after receipt, intention to reuse, reasons for not using, assessment of their effectiveness, importance of content, respondent's attitude toward industry sponsored materials, time reported as being spent in teaching with AISI materials, and user comments.

A bibliography is followed by three lengthy appendixes which contain covering letters and questionnaire, a summary of the comments, and additional tables of supporting data.
