Expert Answer:

Gross errors are mistakes that make the measurement very far off of the known/accepted value. For example, if you were supposed to get the mass of a baseball and you chose a softball from the table to mass, that's a gross error that will skew your results.
 
It signifies that there is something seriously wrong with your measurement system, either you are using wrong instrument to measure or measuring wrong thing.
