Part of the Whole - Student becomes Teacher

lloyd = {

def get_average(student):
homework= float(average(student["homework"]))
test_avg= float(average(student["tests"]))
quizzes = float(average(student["quizzes"]))
return (0.1 * homework + 0.60 *test_avg + .30 * quizzes)

def get_letter_grade(score):
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 student in students:
ave = get_average(student)
results.append(ave)
results = average(results)
return results

students = [lloyd,alice,tyler]

print "class grade",get_class_average(students)

I am getting the following error..

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: global name 'average' is not defined

Oddly enough the script works in Python IDLE


#2

on this line

results = average(results)

you are calling a function called average(arg) but i don't see that function defined anywhere in your code. python does not have any bulit in function called average. You would have to implement that function

Thanks Rydan - you are correct..
