I think I'm doing everything right, however it keeps saying "try again!"

I'm trying to get it to return either praise or reassurance based on the grade, however its not returning either, please help!

first_class.py
import random
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"
    grade = random.randint(0,100)
    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,praise(), reassurance()):

        if grade > 50:
            return praise(self)
        else:
            return reassurance(self)

When you call a method in your if statement it should be return self.method(). For example,

class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    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 grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        else:
            return self.reassurance()
