Hey, i cant seem to solve this challenge on Objects, any help will be nice

it keeps saying praise is not defined

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"
    grade = 4

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)


    def feedback(self,grade):
        if self.grade > 50:
            praise(self)
        else: 
            reassurance(self)

You've got the right basic idea, but a few implementation issues:

  • "grade" is a parameter and not part of the class, so it doesn't need a "self." prefix
  • on the other hand, the methods are part of the class and do need a "self." prefix
  • in addition to calling the methods, the instructions say to "return" the results
