Else If Clause 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'.

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

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

Nothing wrong with your approach, it is the question, it asks to alert 'Welcome student'., your one does have CAPS for s, change it to simple s.

You just have a typo.

The challenges are rather picky about exact output strings. As Antonio mentioned, the challenge is expecting "student" (with lower-case "s") but you wrote "Student" (with a capital "S").
