This paper is an extract from a study investigating the way students’ reasoning and utilization of feedback relate to success and failure in task solving. Sixteen 16-year old students solved a linear function task. They were instructed to use GeoGebra as a mediator and they had the responsibility to choose solution strategies. The results were analyzed using Lithner ́s (2008) framework of imitative and creative reasoning together with Shute ́s (2008) definitions of formative feedback. Schoenfeld ́s (1985) protocol analysis was used to structure the path through solving the task. The results showed that students who were successful in solving the task reasoned creatively and used feedback elaborately. This paper focuses on frameworks and the method of the study.
