Student becomes the teacher


#1

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]
}


def average(numbers):
    total = sum(numbers)
    return float(total) / len(numbers)
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"]) * 0.1
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"]) * 0.3
    tests = average(student["tests"]) * 0.6
    avrg = homework + quizzes + tests
    return avrg
    
    
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"
    elif score <= 59:
        return "F"    
   
def get_class_average(students):
    results = []
    for item in students:
        n = get_average(item)
        results.append(n)
        return n

it seems to work... incorrectly, instead of getting 91.15, it gets 85.85 for alice and lloyd

a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached, if a return keyword is reached in a loop, the loop breaks

so, your loop breaks in its first iteration, it shouldn't

also, you should return the average() if your results list
