Yesterday, ACET held what must be the first ever Halloween evaluator costume contest anywhere. Costumes were judged by a combination of internal staff and staff from neighboring companies. The grand prize was revealed to be $50. Keep reading to discover who won!
Stella’s costume was a comment on the sometimes contentious politics of data visualization. Though she wasn’t actually entered into the judging for the prize, she put a lot of effort into her costume anyway.
Dan’s costume was a traditional representation of an evaluator, complete with degrees, reference materials, and a copy of SPSS! More than one office member was taken aback by his look.
Mary’s costume was a take on how she thinks evaluators should dress and focused on utility, fun colors, and appearing “helpful” and “unthreatening”. She claims she was inspired by Japanese librarians.
Last but not least, Joseph’s costume brought the evaluator firmly into the realm of the superhero. Wearing a suit for his interactions with clients, he reveals the mean/average symbol on his chest when it’s time to crunch numbers. Joseph was the winner of the costume contest and received 100% of the votes!
We had a great time all in all and we hope that you had a fun and safe Halloween. If you were to dress as an evaluator for Halloween, what would you wear?
