I keep getting this error message "Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: list indices must be integers, not str"

I've gone through the other forum posts and based on those, my code looks good but I keep getting this error message!
Hoping a fresh set of eyes will help.

``````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],

}

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
return float(total) / len(numbers)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student['homework'])
quizzes = average(student['quizzes'])

return .10 * homework + \
.30 * quizzes + \
.60 * tests

if score >= 90:
return 'A'
elif score >= 80:
return 'B'
elif score >= 70:
return 'C'
elif score >= 60:
return 'D'
else:
return 'F'

def get_class_average(students):
results = []
for item in students:
results.append(get_average(student))
return average(results)``````

#2

Your iterator variable is `item` but you are passing `student` to `get_average()`.

#3

so whats the error pls

#5

Examine the opening line of your for statement. Now check the argument.

``item  !== student``
