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".
