can you post the full code that you have because the alert is fine it looks like you are trying to alert a string variable? Once i see the full code i will be able to figure the rest out thanks.

Complete the code below to open an alert that displays the value of the grade property of the student object: alert( student_________________);

so with out going to the quiz it self which not to be a pain but if you could link me to that it would be great but it looks like you need to put a grade variable that seems like it stores a string.

from: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/javascript-loops-arrays-and-objects/tracking-data-using-objects/review-object-basics

the section is on objects. so it's asking for an object format that will pull the info as required

"Complete the code below to open an alert that displays the value of the grade property of the student object: alert( student _________);"

I would guess it's something like student.grade

Yup, the blank part is just ".grade" since student is already in the alert() statement.

Ok thank you for doing that so for the student one its alert( student.grade); What its doing is accessing the variable inside the student object Hopefully this makes sense but this will now pass you for that part of the quiz.

Think of it more as a property of the object

the object is student, the property is grade, and inside the object the grade is set to 'something' (let's say 90%)

by calling for student.grade it will return 90
