I have gone through the community forums looking for what I am doing wrong, but when put against others code it looks right, what am I missing?

first_class.py
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 reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)
    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade is > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

You're really close, you just don't need the word "is" here. The ">" symbol by itself is the comparison operator.

The word "is" is another operator entirely, used for identity comparisons instead of values.

Thank you so much! Not sure how I managed to miss that honestly.
