Error message clearly doesn't check out


Exercise 1

«Oops, try again. The name key does not have the value "Lloyd" in your lloyd dictionary.»

The value is correctly attributed, contrary to what the message says. I checked with IDLE, and confirmed.

lloyd = {
    "name" : ["Lloyd"],
    "homework" : [],
    "quizzes" : [],
    "tests" : []


Hi @fchd,

This ...

"name" : ["Lloyd"],

... places the value ["Lloyd"] in the dictionary instead of "Lloyd". Remove the square brackets from that value.


Confusing with lists, silly me...
