You're nearly there - I would remove the $ sign though and leave the parameter as gpa because the challenge may not pass if there is a $ sign before gpa.

Secondly the challenge is asking you to give the Student class a field called gpa. We can do this using the this keyword.

Here's an example:

class Teacher {
    constructor(name) {
        this.name = name;
    }
}

The above code would assign the name passed to the constructor as the Teacher's name.
