    Abstract

    In a context where schools are held more and more accountable for the education they provide data‐based decision making has become increasingly important. From research in a few best practice schools we know that teachers can use data to improve the functioning of the school in terms of increased student achievement (Lai, McNaughton, Timperley & Hsiao, 2009; Wohlstetter, Datnow & Park, 2008). However, we also know that most teachers do not use data properly, or do not use data at all (Schildkamp & Teddlie, 2008; Schildkamp & Kuiper, 2010). For data to lead to school improvement, it is important to research for what purposes school staff use these data. Therefore, we studied the following research question in English as well as Dutch schools: For what purposes do school staff use data?
