Will it be important to be able to analyze graphs for test questions based on determining reaction order, or are we only plotting them for conceptual understanding to see how the axis will change for zero, first, and second order reactions?

If you can plot the graph then I think you should be able to go backwards and determine the rate of reaction and reaction order from a given graph by looking at the axes and linearity/curve of the line of the graph.

I think understanding the linear graphs also helps us understand why we write integrated rate laws in point slope form of a line.
