Oops, try again. It looks like Lloyd is not in the students list.


It seems that there is a problem with capital letters names. I've tried multiple combinations (using both Lloyd and lloyd) without success.


loyd = {
    "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]
}

students = ["lloyd", "alice", "tyler"]

you misspelled lloyd. that should fix it.


#3

Thanks for your quick reply! I actually did not copy the first character by mistake so the code breaks also when I fix the lloyd...


#4

I see the problem.
In the students list, you want to put in the dictionaries lloyd, alice... You put in simply a string of the name. .
get rid of the quotation marks around the names
