I just went into an ICT Suite where they were entering information and then producing a barchart. It was obvious that the teacher needed a hand so I pitched in. They found following simple instructions very difficult and had to been spoon-fed. But, they all knew how to format the graph with pretty colours. Some even managed to colour code individual bars!
So, contrary to popular belief, these kids can do it and remember how to do it, when it is fun.
