Commentary on Coburn and Turner's Research on Data Use : a Framework and Analysis. There is a need to consider the role of students in data-use initiatives, and the Coburn and Turner framework provides a useful way to think about the conditions that should be in place to promote effective data use with and by students. Efforts to design and implement data interventions could benefit from research-based guidance on ways to create opportunities for productive student involvement.
