Joette Stefl-Mabry, PhD is a Professor and a tenured faculty member in the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany.
Dr. Stefl-Mabry’s area of research focuses on educational assessment and evaluation: documenting evidence of practice by providing observable and measurable evidence of the attainment of student learning goals at a granular level where learning takes place: in classrooms.
Recently, Dr. Stefl-Mabry was PI on a three-year IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) funded research project: RE-96-18-0032-18 Seeking Stronger Evidence of School Library Effects on Student Outcomes. This was a follow up to her 2015-18 IMLS funded research, RE-04-15-0081-15, that examined the effect of school librarians on academic achievement in all public schools in New York State. The recent project extended her previous study, seeking to provide a longitudinal empirical examination of how school library variables and combinations of those variables effect student outcomes while controlling for a wide range of student and school demographics, building level characteristics, climate, and prior academic achievement.
