Stool quality: You won't see fiber in human stool per se, it will just be bulky and pass out easily when you have enough fiber in your diet. 25-30 grams/day is the target for adults.

Brown, soft, formed: Basically, brown, soft, but well formed. Anything else on a consistent basis may need evaluation - especially if other symptoms.
