I need a essay on the below topic in APA format of atleast 300 words.

As our concepts and theories evolve, we adapt our assessments to fit the new model. Kirk’s (2012) “eight hats of data visualization design” was influenced by Edward de Bono’s six thinking hats. However, last week we discussed “seven hats.” What changed from Kirk’s 2012 book to his 2016 book? This week we will discuss the similarities and differences of Kirk’s (2012, 2016) hats.

Basically you have to compare the Seven hats topic from Kirk’s 2012 and 2016 Book .

I have added the text books for your reference
