Review JavaScript Fundamentals by Building a Gradebook App - Step 4

Tell us what’s happening:

The output is correct But I don’t know why there is an error saying that “Your function call of studentMsg([92, 88, 12, 77, 57, 100, 67, 38, 97, 89], 37) should return the following message: “Class average: 71.7. Your grade: F. You failed the course.”.”

Your code so far

function getAverage(scores) {
  let sum = 0;

  for (const score of scores) {
    sum += score;
  }

  return sum / scores.length;
}

function getGrade(score) {
  if (score === 100) {
    return "A++";
  } else if (score >= 90) {
    return "A";
  } else if (score >= 80) {
    return "B";
  } else if (score >= 70) {
    return "C";
  } else if (score >= 60) {
    return "D";
  } else {
    return "F";
  }
}

function hasPassingGrade(score) {
  return getGrade(score) !== "F";
}

function studentMsg(totalScores, studentScore) {
if(hasPassingGrade(studentScore)){
return '"Class average: '+getAverage(totalScores)+'. Your grade: '+getGrade(studentScore)+'. You passed the course."';
}else{

}
}
console.log(studentMsg([92, 88, 12, 77, 57, 100, 67, 38, 97, 89], 37));

The output is correct But I don't know why there is an error saying that "Your function call of studentMsg([92, 88, 12, 77, 57, 100, 67, 38, 97, 89], 37) should return the following message: "Class average: 71.7. Your grade: F. You failed the course."."

Welcome to the forum @jacobjames70007

The top line is the expected output.
The second line is the output of your code.

You are are adding quote marks to the output string.

Class average: 71.7. Your grade: F. You failed the course.
“Class average: 71.7. Your grade: F. You failed the course.”

Class average: 50.8. Your grade: A++. You passed the course.
“Class average: 50.8. Your grade: A++. You passed the course.”

Happy coding

I update my code `function studentMsg(totalScores, studentScore) {
let passFail;
if(hasPassingGrade(studentScore)){
passFail = " You passed the course.“;
}else{
passFail = " You failed the course.”;

}
return ‘Class average: ‘+getAverage(totalScores)+’ .Your grade: ‘+getGrade(studentScore)+’.’+passFail;
}
console.log(studentMsg([92, 88, 12, 77, 57, 100, 67, 38, 97, 89], 37));
console.log(studentMsg([56, 23, 89, 42, 75, 11, 68, 34, 91, 19], 100));`
But still it will not pass the test .

The issue is the spacing around the second period.

Class average: 71.7. Your grade: F. You failed the course.
Class average: 71.7 .Your grade: F. You failed the course.

Class average: 50.8. Your grade: A++. You passed the course.
Class average: 50.8 .Your grade: A++. You passed the course.

Happy coding
