Quantitative research is easy to remember as being based on quantity (how many?).  Large groups are studied to test hypotheses, look at cause and effect, and make predictions.  It allows for specific variables to be tested, is highly controlled, and deals mainly with numbers and statistics.

   Examples: carefully designed experiments, numerical data

This makes it seem like qualitative research should be based on quality.  However, try to think of it more as a way to qualify (understand and interpret) the value of a particular research problem (what?  why?).  Somebody has identified a statistical relationship between x and y, and now the new qualitative research is looking to identify themes, patterns, etc.  

   Examples: open-ended questionnaires, unstructured observation

If you want to compare the aspects of qualitative and quantitative research, please see this chart from Xavier University.
