Needs and Uses: Many modern jobs, including military duties, rely heavily on reading and interpreting simple data displays such as bar graphs, line graphs, and pie charts. However, there is no method for determining the ‘‘reading level’’ of a graph, as may be done for prose through multiple methods. We adapted a methodology for generating queries for a reading comprehension test to generate queries for graph comprehension. We seek to determine how well this methodology works by asking example queries of participants, and simultaneously measuring the difficulty associated with certain graph styles (e.g. multiple axes). Affected Public: Individuals and households. Annual Burden Hours: 125. Number of Respondents: 100. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 100. Average Burden per Response: 75 minutes.
