OOP question

Why do I get an NameError on numberCorrect for this class/method:

from questions import GenerateQuestion

class Quiz:
    numberCorrect = 0

    def take_quiz(self):
            GenerateQuestion(self.numberCorrect,"+")

Here is my GenerateQuestion class:

import random
class GenerateQuestion:
     text = None
     answer = None
     num1 = None
     num2 = None
     maxnum = 0
     def __init__(self, scale, symbol):
         self.maxnum = 2 ** scale
         self.num1 = random.randint(1,self.maxnum)
         self.num2 = random.randint(1,self.maxnum)
         self.text = "{} {} {}".format(self.num1,symbol,self.num2)
         if symbol == "+":
             self.answer = self.num1 + self.num2
         if symbol == "-":
             self.answer = self.num1 - self.num2
         if symbol == "*":
             self.answer = self.num1 * self.num2
         if symbol == "/":
             self.answer = self.num1 // self.num2

I've tested your code, it seems to be working fine on both python 2 and 3 on my machine. This is part of some quiz? If you are running this on your computer, what error message you got?
