Hi there, I think your issue is here:

for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i+= 1) {
        student = students [i];
      if (search.name === search.toLowerCase()) {
        message = getStudentReport ( student );
      }
}

I believe the if statement should compare student.name to search.toLowerCase()).

The "search" term is a simple string, it has no "name" property. You probably meant to write "student" instead:

//    if (search.name === search.toLowerCase()) {     // original
      if (student.name === search.toLowerCase()) {    // fixed
