Creating Setter Methods

Is this the correct way to Create Setter Methods?

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();
  set major(student) {
    if (this.level === 'Senior' || this.level 'Junior') {
      this._major = major; 
    } else {
      this._major = none; 
  get major() {
    return this._major;

  var student = new Student(3.9, 61);
student.major = 'Computer Science';

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) {
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) {
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) {
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else {
            return 'Freshman';

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Your basic setter structure is good, but you have several other issues:

  • the value major being assigned is not defined, the parameter name is student
  • the comparison operator is missing between this.level and 'Junior'
  • the alternative value to assign should be 'None' (a string)
  • the instructions don't ask for a getter to be created
  • the instructions don't ask for any code to be created outside of the class
  • there should also not be any extra lines of code added to the class that are not part of the setter
