Qualitative measures can often be translated into quantitative measure of
some sort. Quality is a 'fluffy' notion for something quantifiable. Once you
get some figures accumulated, throw them at one of the many statistical
analysis tools, many of which are free. You should then have something
emprical to back your hypothesis.

Hope it helps,
