    Abstract

    The majority of students are able to read data from graphs and tables, but many still have difficulty reading meaning into them. The SOLO taxonomy of Biggs and Collis can be adapted to provide a useful four-step template of generalized questions, that lead students from the basic skills of data retrieval, to the advanced skills of critical analysis.
