correctAnswer not working?

So everything is seems to be working fine except my correctAnswer counter in the print message at the bottom of my funciton

var questions = [
['How many states in the U.S.?', 50],
['What\'s the name of your cat?', 'Caesar'],
['What is your name?', 'Nate']
];

var corectAnswer = 0;
var question;
var answer;
var response;
var html;




function print(message) {
  document.write(message);
}

 function Quiz (list) {
while (true) {

for (var i = 0; i < list.length; i += 1 ) {
response = prompt(list[i][0]);
  answer = list[i][1];
  response = response.toLowerCase();
}

   if (response = 'quit') {
   break;
   }
    else if (response === answer) {
    correctAnswer += 1;
    } 
}
   print('You got ' + corectAnswer + ' questions right');

 }

Quiz(questions);

Looks like you're just missing the 'r' in the function. You have 'corectAnswer' as the variable, but in the IF statement you have 'correctAnswer'

haha! wow. I was going mad for the smallest fix. Thank you.

So I fixed the 'correctAnswer' to be spelled correctly everywhere... but I'm noticing that my 'quit' is no longer working... and the 'correctAnswer' counter still isn't working.

To have 'quit' work, you should have 2 or 3 '=' in order to compare the result 'response' to 'quit'. One '=' is an assignment.

Also, put your logical statement (if, else if) within the for loop. Since it is not within the loop now, it's not counting your responses. To get the counter to work, I removed one of the '=' from the comparison on the else if. The issue you'll run into now is that if you lowercase the response but not the answer, they won't compare to be equal.
