Document use involves interpreting graphs or charts among other things.

The Nine Essential Skills:  Document Use

Reading, and understanding, the signs

Document use is the ability find and use the information you need, put in information where it is needed, and construct information displays. These are all document use tasks. Icons, labels, lists, tables, forms, graphs, signs, maps, gauges, images, schedules, schematics, touch screens and technical drawings are examples of document or information displays used in a workplace. We use this skill when we read signs, labels, lists, as well as when we interpret graphs and charts.

For example, in the hospitality industry, line cooks use their document use skills when they read and enter data on the freezer temperature-recording chart or check off items and quantities on delivery checklists.
