Associate Professor Joette Stefl-Mabry is the primary investigator of an Institute of Museum and Library Services-funded initiative entitled 21st Century Assessment Planning for Educators (CAPE). The project will address public demands for higher standards, accountability, and effective instruction by training future educators in the design and development of best assessment and evaluation practices.
The partners, which include UAlbany’s Department of Information Studies, School of Education, and the Association for the Cooperative Advancement of Science and Education, will use this planning grant to identify critical capabilities and create an online assessment and evaluation course for teachers and school librarians that will help educators to align their curriculum with valid assessments, thus fostering and facilitating collaboration among classroom teachers and school librarians as instructional partners.
Stefl-Mabry’s research interests include reflective practice, student voice, problem-based learning, and assessment and evaluation. She co-developed the SLO&AR (Student Learning Outcomes & Assessment Review) model with William E.J. Doane, PhD. SLO&AR guides educators to make explicit their class/course-level student learning outcomes, (attitudes, skills, and knowledge) and helps them to align student learning outcomes (SLOs) with assessments of the degree of student attainment of those outcomes.
