A study comparing the learning support facilitated by interactive worked examples and scaffolding questions was made using the Assistments.org System. The problems used were chosen from questions from past examinations in the 8th grade Mathematics MCAS. After analyzing the data it was conclusive that learning occurred by using either interactive worked examples or scaffolding questions. It was inconclusive, however, that there is a difference between the two learning methods.
