Build an object challenge Part 2

I don't know what I am doing wrong, I changed my code to be exactly like Dave's in the video, but still nothing is showing up in the web page. Please help.

var message = ' '; var student;

function print(message) { var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output'); outputDiv.innerHTML= message; }

for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i+=1) { student = student[i]; message +='<h2>Student: ' + students.name + '</h2>; } print(message);

<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>Students</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.css"> </head> <body> <h1>Students</h1> <div id="output">

</div> <script src="js/students.js"></script> <script src="js/student_report.js"></script> </body> </html>

Hey, Nathaniel.

It has been a while since I completed this challenge, but at first glance of your code above, I see a couple of issues with your loop through the students array. First, you want to make sure that you are setting the student variable equal to the object at index [i] within the student array on each loop. Your current code is missing the "s" on "students[i]".

Second, you want the text content of your <h2> element to be the value of the name property on each student object as you loop through the students array. You currently have it set to "students.name". You want it to be set to "student.name".

Finally, it looks like you are missing a closing quote on your closing </h2> tag within the for loop.

Try those changes and let me know if you run into any further problems.

Best of luck!
