What makes a good hint
    A hint is an utterance made by the tutor that explicitly attempts to guide the learner in the retrieval of knowledge or in drawing a correct inference. There are three types of commonly used hints that you might want to consider. They are listed below along with generic examples.

Information conveyance hints
Explicit statements to get the learner to retrieve or infer knowledge
Example: How would a change in X impact Y?

Pointing hints
Implicit hints that provide context to try to elicit the response from the user
Example: Think about what else you could add, think about the relationship between X and Y.

Directed reasoning hints
These tend to be a series of questions that guide the learner to think through the process of getting the answer.
Example: So, what happened first? This lead to what? Which caused what to happen? So, can you summarize the process for me?
