In this thoughtful American Journal of Education article, Judith Warren Little of the University of California/Berkeley says there is very little good research on what teachers actually do when they engage in data-based decision making. She suggests that researchers zoom in on the details of teachers' work, using a "micro-process" lens to get a better sense of what works and what doesn't work when teachers look at interim assessment data.

Micro-process research has been used to see what goes on when a doctor conducts a standard medical interview of a patient. Close observation of the human dynamics has revealed that the doctor's questions often focused on biomedical data, ignoring the patient's efforts to introduce "lifeworld" information. "More specifically," says Little, "an interview structure that privileged short answers to a physician's questions about symptoms tended to silence, constrain, or interrupt longer patient narratives that might have served as a resource in medical diagnosis and treatment."
In schools, micro-process studies have helped spotlight the dreary "I-R-E" (Initiate-Reply-Evaluate) classroom dynamic - the teacher asks a question, a student responds, the teacher says whether it's right or wrong, and the cycle repeats itself.
Little summarizes six studies that closely observed teachers as they worked with data.

"Teachers' inferences from these written records of student work - inferences about what students 'must have been thinking' - were challenged when the teachers started more systematically to elicit students' verbal explanations of what they had done and how they were thinking and to report those classroom conversations alongside the work that students produced," says Little.
...
Open-ended analysis of a small sample of student work on common instructional tasks proved more helpful than looking at all-class data; the latter tended to focus "on the correctness or incorrectness of student responses with little attention to evidence of the reasoning behind the response," says Little.
