JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Add an Else If Clause

Am I doing something wrong here?

Challenge Question: Add an else if clause that tests to see if the isStudent variable is true. If it is then open an alert dialog with the message 'Welcome student'.

When I couldn't get this to go through I checked the MDN to verify that I was doing it correctly. Still can't get this to go through. The first question was about the admin, and I also tried copying that one, changing admin to student, and adding else.

Any thing you see that is wrong? Or is this a glitch in the matrix?

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
}   else if ( isStudent ) {
  alert('Welcome student');
}
