Quantitative or Qualitative


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)
