But of course this is impractical, both for tests and for much of real world mathematics.

*mathematics*curriculum. (I am, after all, a professional mathematician.) If being able to read this kinds of plots is so valuable to science, I wonder why it is not on the science exam instead. (Maybe there isn't an equivalent exam in science?)

As it stands the question is mostly a

*vocabulary*test, and a pretty bad one at that. It does not require the students to understand what is a "median" or what is an "interquartile range", but rather just that a median is represented by a certain symbol on a certain type of graph, and ditto interquartile range.

At the very least, let us test whether the students know how to interpret median and interquartile range usefully. (Who here actually plots temperature data as a box and whiskers and use that to determine vacation destinations? The interquartile range is pretty useless if this year happens to be El Nino or La Nina.) The median and interquartile range are somewhat useful if you assume your data has a single humped distribution. But in other data sets using that particular metric is somewhat dubious.

*thinking*is to their lives. It can branch out, too. Like, I usually pick my own berries to freeze for the winter, which saves us a lot money, but those are hours I'm not working and therefore not earning money. But then there are social and ecological benefits hard (yet somewhat possible) to quantify.
