TrueScore Consulting provides a variety of research services for decision makers in the government, nonprofit, philanthropic, research, and academic sectors. We analyze and explain data to inform policy discussions or to evaluate the effectiveness of a program. We strive to be thorough, accurate, and objective.

Our clients have included leading organizations such as the National Academy of Education, National Research Council, Center on Education Policy, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Birthright Israel, Jim Joseph Foundation, National Assessment Governing Board, University of Oregon, and George Washington University. 


Many of the research projects we have worked on have received national media attention in outlets such as CNN, ABC, Education Week, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and regional media. Our research has been cited in testimony before U.S. House and Senate Committees, and in briefs filed before the U.S. Supreme Court.


Washington Post reviews one of our recent projects: "Are U.S. Schools Really Such Big Losers in the World?"
