10th Grade MCAS Mathematics questions taken from past exams available on the MCAS website were created in the Assistments.org System and used in a study involving high school students preparing for the MCAS exam to compare the efficacy of scaffolding and hints on their learning performance. After analyzing the data, it was conclusive that learning occurred in both the hints and the scaffolding questions. However, it was inconclusive as to whether or not scaffolding questions are more conducive to learning.
