Are we expected to know how to calculate these values in order to find electronegativity differences?

I don't think we need to be able to calculate electronegativity values right now

If we did have to calculate electronegativity differences, we would probably be given a table with each element's electronegativity value. We would just find the difference between the values of the two atoms.

I think we just need to know the general trends of electronegativity across the periodic table. For example, electronegativity increases across a period due to the increased number of protons in nucleus.
