quatitative observations have to do with QUANTITY and qualitative observations have to do with QUALITY.

qualitative observations don't use numbers and quantitative observations use numbers I remember them by the "N" in quantitative and I'd think that the "N" meant number.


Qualitative and Quantitative.



Basically qualitative observations are about the properties of what is being observed that do not use numerical units. Quantitative observations are those that do use measurements.


Quantitative observations are measurements, giving numerical answers. Qualitative ones produce simple descriptions, e.g. bubbles.


quantitative observations can be expressed in numerical terms while quantitative observations are based on your senses - what you can see, hear, smell, etc.


Quantitative observations are the data collected in an experiment, mostly numbers. Qualitative observations would usually include written answers to analysis questions.


They are dissimilar - not alike. "she was tall" is qualitative. "she was 2.01m tall" is quantitative. It embodies a quantity or measurement.


Qualitative observations have to do with qualities and not numbers, which would be quantitative observations. You can observe the shape, smell, taste, color, etc.

Quantitative observations (as opposed to qualitative observations, which do not include numbers)


Five examples of qualitative observations are texture, color, shape, form, and luminosity. Five examples of quantitative observations are length, width, volume, weight, and temperature.



Qualitative (quantitative are observations that can be expressed numerically)


Observations can be Quantitative and or Qualitative. Quantitative observations are made objectively and are measurements and factual observations. eg "The plank is 3 feet long and rough sawn". Qualitative observations are subjective and may not be factual. eg. "The plank is a pretty colour and feels furry".


Qualitative observations are non-numerical Quantitative observations are numerical Although sometimes it can be a combination of the above


quantitative is observations with numbers and qualitative does not


Listen to the words qualitative and quantitativeand see the part where it is bold.Qualitative is the way of analysis to a substance through its quality, like reaction to a re-agent etc. (normally chemistry). Quantitative observation however is purely on quantity mass, mass/volume ratio etc. (normally physics).Basically, qualitative observations are descriptions that don't involve numbers or measurements, but, on the other hand, quantitative observations do.


Qualitative usually refers to the quality of the work, how good, or bad, the work is. Quantitative refers to the amount, or quantity, of the work.


Qualitative observations are those that cannot be measured mathematically or assigned a value. For example, "the sky is blue," is a qualitative observation, it has no mathematical value associated with it. Quantitative observations are those that have a mathematical value. For example, "this desk is 1 meter long" is a quantitative observation. Therefore, noting that something is bubbling is an example of a qualitative observation.



Recorded observations and measurements from an experiment are referred to as data. The data can either be quantitative or qualitative.


The first will have numerical values associated wit the observations the second will not.


Quantitative observations are observations that can be precisely measured. Qualitative observations, meanwhile, are subjective observations that are based on the characteristics of what is being observed.


Observations can be Quantitative and or Qualitative. Quantitative observations are made objectively and are measurements and factual observations. eg "The plank is 3 feet long and rough sawn".Qualitative observations are subjective and may not be factual. eg.
