The results of testing can be qualitative (yes/no), quantitative (a measured value), or categorical and can be derived from personal observation or the output of a precision measuring instrument.
A test method can result in qualitative data about something.

Measuring instrument

The results of testing can be qualitative (yes/no), quantitative (a measured value), or categorical and can be derived from personal observation or the output of a precision measuring instrument.
Measuring instruments, and formal test methods which define the instrument's use, are the means by which these relations of numbers are obtained.

Technical standard

Using a standardized test method, perhaps published by a respected standards organization, is a good place to start.

Experiment

experimentalexperimentationexperiments
A test can be considered an observation or experiment that determines one or more characteristics of a given sample, product, process, or service. As such, fully documenting experiments and measurements while providing needed documentation and descriptions of specifications, contracts, and test methods is vital.
The goal of the experiment is to measure the response to the stimulus by a test method.

Physical test

A test method is a method for a test in science or engineering, such as a physical test, chemical test, or statistical test.

Chemical test

A test method is a method for a test in science or engineering, such as a physical test, chemical test, or statistical test.

Measurement system analysis

A measurement systems analysis evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the entire process of obtaining measurements to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis (usually quality analysis) and to understand the implications of measurement error for decisions made about a product or process.

Calibration

All of the information above is collected in a calibration procedure, which is a specific test method.

Measurement

The evaluation of a measurement system is not limited to gage but to all types of measuring instruments, test methods, and other measurement systems.

Physical property
