semi-quantitative
Explanation:
See for example https://www.quora.com/What-results-does-a-semi-quantitative-...

"Semi-quantitative tests are ones that yield a result such as "less than 5", "between 5 and 20" or "greater than 20". Semi-quantitative tests are considered insensitive, and as a result, they are very specific and not subject to many false negatives or false positives.

This is opposed to qualitative tests, which are either "positive", "negative", or "indeterminate"; and quantitative tests which yield an actual number."
