The CAHSEE includes several problem types made comprehensible with the ability to interpret data presented in some kind of graphic. In the past common contexts for this type of question have included pie charts, line graphs, bar graphs, and scatterplots. A common thread among these items is the emphasis on understanding and interpreting, rather than calculation. Success relies most on student familiarity with many kinds of graphs, and communication of their meanings.
Students can expect to face SIX conceptually similar chart-type questions on the CAHSEE assessing three different Grade-7 standards (7PS1.1, 7AF1.5, 7AF3.4).
