In this chapter, the results of all the studies presented in this book are summarized. What are the lessons learned? Based on the lessons learned, we developed a data use framework. In this framework, data use is influenced by several enablers and barriers (e.g., the school organization context, data and data systems, and user characteristics). Data can be used in a desirable as well as undesirable manner, but what happens a lot in schools as well is that data are not used. Policy may also influence the use of data, as well as its enablers and barriers. Finally, we argue that if data are used in a desirable manner this can lead to school leader, teacher, and student learning (e.g., increased student achievement).
