Lloyd's, alice's and tyler's name and marks refuse to show



Oops, try again. Did you print out each student's name? It looks like "Lloyd" wasn't printed.

I would like the students name and marks to show

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]
for student in students:
    if student == "lloyd":
        print lloyd["name"]
        print lloyd["homework"]
        print lloyd["quizzes"]
        print lloyd["test"] 
    if student == "alice":
        print alice["name"]
        print alice["homework"]
        print alice["quizzes"]
        print alice["test"] 
    if student == "tyler":
        print tyler["name"]
        print tyler["homework"]
        print tyler["quizzes"]
        print tyler["test"]


take a moment to see what student contains:

for student in students:
    print student

it contains the dictionary's. How can a dictionary be equal to a string? In fact, what you do sort of defeat the purpose of loops, since (thanks to the loop) the variable student will hold each dictionary in turn, you could simple do:

for student in students:
     print student["name"]

to print the name of all the students
