Does Codecademy check for punctuation?
It sure does! If you ever feel you’ve entered what it asks for in the instructions, but it’s marking it wrong, take a second look and be sure you have the same capitalization, spacing, and punctuation if it’s a string. Once you get to the free form projects, though, you’ll have much more room for creativity! Take a look at the code below for a passing and failing example:
# The instructions say “Create a new variable brian and assign it the string "Hello life!".” # Passing: brian = “Hello life!” # Failing Brian = “Hello life!” brian = “hello life” brian = “Hello life.”
