Qualitative observation deals with data that can be observed with our senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. They do not involve measurements or numbers. For instance, colors, shapes, and textures of objects are all qualitative observations.
Quantitative observation involves performing research to find information about entire populations. It involves conducting surveys and administering polls to individuals to understand numerical data, like height, weight and age.
Qualitative observations are made when you use your senses to observe the results. (Sight, smell, touch, taste and hear.) Quantitative observations are made with instruments such as rulers, balances, graduated cylinders, beakers, and thermometers. These results are measurable.
Conduct statistical analysis: Quantitative observation verifies details by conducting statistical analysis of a statement. Numerical results: All the results of quantitative observation are numerical. Use various instruments: Instruments such as rulers, thermometers, balances etc. are used for quantitative observation.
