Part of the whole, no syntax error but still returning the wrong thing

#1

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: string indices must be integers, not str

A) I don't understand what the error is
B)How do I fix it

``````    "name": "Lloyd",

Make sure you're getting the values out of each student, not just the names of the students.

#3

Here:

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

Don't you mean:

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