Tutoring feedback is an interactive instructional method that involves asking students to solve problems or engage in a some constructive activity while a tutor monitors student actions (steps) and responds to indicate whether or not those actions are correct (i.e., gives feedback). Tutoring feedback provides a level of instructional assistance that lies between worked examples and untutored problem solving (e.g., typical homework). Like untutored problem solving, tutored problem solving provides less assistance than a worked example because the solution is not given (at least not initially). However, if a student makes errors than they get more assistance from tutoring problem solving than untutored problem solving because of the availability of tutoring feedback.
