Numbers – Multiple choice questions or simple answers that can be categorised and turned into a statistic
Did you jump when the teacher asked you to?
1 – Yes
2 – No
You can then describe the answers as a graph or chart – 70% of people said ‘NO’
Can you guess why the remaining 30% didn’t answer the question?
Words – Open-ended answers that are usually opinions and long winded that you may find boring – help determine more specific knowledge
These can be answers to a question ‘WHY?’
I chose not to because I had a dream that if I die the world would implode (qualitative – can’t be put in to a statistic or quantified)
