Practice Data Interpretation Tests
Updated January 27, 2022
The ability to interpret data presented in tables, graphs and charts is a common requirement in many management and professional jobs.
If you are applying for a job which involves analysis of or decision-making based on numerical data then you can expect to answer data interpretation questions.
This sample question paper contains 40 questions and has a suggested time limit of 10 minutes. The questions are presented in Letter/A4 format for easy printing and self-marking.
Data Interpretation questions are very widely used to assessing candidates for graduate and management level jobs.
Many people who have been out of the education system for a while or who don’t use interpret graphs, pie charts, scatter diagrams and tables of data on a day-to-day basis may feel overawed by these types of question.
The important thing to remember is that you don’t need to have studied mathematics to a high level to succeed.
These questions are primarily tests of interpretation and the math needed is invariably straightforward.
You will usually be allowed to use a calculator for these types of question and investing in one which can handle fractions and percentages is a good idea.
You should also try to work through a few numerical computation practice papers to get back into swing of these types of calculation.
