Correlation Between Assessment and Fashion?

My colleague, Ms. Chabot, put this slide together to introduce our Assessment FOR Learning workshop.  It is simple and to the point and served as a good ‘hook’ to our session.  Do note there were a collection of great pictures that came before comparing fashion trends past and present…. and assessment trends past and present.  Do you remember when the Scantron machine came out in the 70’s?

Fashion Then and Now:

Fashion is cyclical. It responds to the time and culture in which it exists.

Fashion is an ever changing trend that will be different from the year before and will call upon its own past for inspiration in the future.

Current styles obviously differ from the popular wears of the early 20th century, but there are similar concepts that exist between the fashion trends of today and yesterday.
