This is the open-access version of this module and your progress is not tracked or recorded

When learning a new skill, learners may make a lot of mistakes. If a learner does not respond correctly to an instruction, the teacher might provide assistance to help the learner. The assistance a teacher provides is called a prompt. Prompts minimize learner errors to enhance learning.
