What are qualitiative observations?
observations like the fox's hair is brown. Not numbers just visual.
There are two basic types of observation, quantitative and qualitative. Quantitative defines while qualitative data describes. Observations such as smell, taste, and appearance are all qualitative. As opposed to quantitive which is any observation (such as size, or weight) where a definitive value can be assigned.
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".
