Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 83.8666666667 instead of 91.15 as expected

The average to be correct

Hi @coreninja11063,

I think your error comes from this bit:

As you can see here, you have the get_class_average function with the parameter students. Within this function, you decide to iterate through the list that would be called in the function, so, you did for student in class_list.

However, this is a mistake because the list class_list hasn't been passed into the function since the function has yet to be called. Hence, to make your code work, you simply have to replace for student in class_list with for student in students, which is the parameter you are defining the function with before you pass anything else into it.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
