Did you describe the error and explain how it affected the data?
"artificially inflated the data (made the values for time too high)"
Describe as in human/random/etc error
The data was collected by a manually operated stopwatch read by eye, so human reaction time may have artificially inflated the time recorded. Due to the limited precision of a human being, this can be best described as a human error.
It's not really on the rules, but it's kind of given (I guess?). Maybe the grader was just tired of grading tests and graded based off word choice/sophisticated-ness/whatever.
