Naomi Chudowsky, Ph.D. is founder of TrueScore Consulting. She has worked in the field of educational testing and research for more than twenty years. After earning her Ph.D at Stanford University in educational psychology and measurement, Naomi coordinated the development of a new statewide high school testing program at the Connecticut State Department of Education. From there she moved to Washington, DC, where she worked on President Clinton’s Voluntary Testing Initiative at the National Center for Education Statistics. That was followed by seven years as a Program Officer at the National Academy of Sciences, where she conducted research and wrote committee reports on a wide variety of education topics. Family considerations brought Naomi to Bend, Oregon in 2003. As a consultant, she has continued to use her expertise to help nonprofits and government agencies conduct high-quality education research.
