This study investigates the bottom-up implementation of a data informed evaluation culture in public schools in two Danish municipalities. The study examines attitudinal and behavioral changes to the teachers’ data use during a data intervention by analyzing longitudinal mixed methods data. Results show that 1) teachers are very reluctant to use data, which resulted in low fidelity with the intervention 2) teachers lack the competencies to act didactically on data, and 3) when there is a mismatch between data and their subjective assessment of a student, they look for individual explanations, which may explain why the data is wrong.
