Error: It looks like Lloyd is not in the students list.


I expected lloyd to be detected in the students list - but it wasn't. I've tested it with caps, without caps, and a whole bunch of different variations.

lloyd = {
    "name": "Lloyd",
    "homework": [90.0,97.0,75.0,92.0],
    "quizzes": [88.0,40.0,94.0],
    "tests": [75.0,90.0]
}
alice = {
    "name": "Alice",
    "homework": [100.0, 92.0, 98.0, 100.0],
    "quizzes": [82.0, 83.0, 91.0],
    "tests": [89.0, 97.0]
}
tyler = {
    "name": "Tyler",
    "homework": [0.0, 87.0, 75.0, 22.0],
    "quizzes": [0.0, 75.0, 78.0],
    "tests": [100.0, 100.0]
}
students = ["lloyd","alice","tyler"]

Thank you!

The students list is a collection of dictionary identifiers. They should not be in quotes.

Oh, I see. It was a bit unspecific :slight_smile:

Thanks!
