Integrated Reasoning Section: Graphics Interpretation

What The Questions Look Like:

Graph or graphical image such as a scatter plot, pie chart, x/y graph, bar chart, or statistical curve distribution

Text explaining the graphic or image and providing additional data

Fill in the blank statements with multiple-choice answers


Strategies:

Read the questions carefully. Make sure you understand what you are being asked to do.  Sometimes, these questions will require quantitative analysis such as comparing different rates of growth or calculating a change in a given value.  Other times, they will require more logical analysis such as making an inference based on the data provided.

Understand the graphic image, including the accompanying text. Pay special attention to the scales on the axes, labels, and units on the graph.  Most importantly, do not skip over the text.  It is there to help you and clarify the image, so read it!
