She joined the faculty at Teachers College in 2001, and is pleased to serve on the faculty steering committee of the Columbia Global Centers-Mumbai.

Professor Chatterji’s research and teaching interests lie broadly in assessment-evaluation methodology and assessment policy issues in K-12 and higher education, health and psychology.

Madhabi received a Fulbright Research Scholar Award (2008) to study educational equity issues in India and Bangladesh, outside an Outstanding Publication Award from the American Educational Research Association (2004) for her work on evidence standards, and a Distinguished Paper Award from the Florida Educational Research Association (1993) for her research on the merits of combining different measurement models for validating construct measures. Her most recent publication on evidence standards is titled,  “Causal inferences on the effectiveness of complex social programs:  Navigating assumptions, sources of complexity and evaluation design challenges” (Evaluation and Program Planning). She is currently working on her third book, titled Designing Assessments for Multidisciplinary Constructs and Applications: A User-centered Methodology (Guilford).

Madhabi has served, and continues to serve on numerous national and international advisory panels/committees.
