Whats my mistake here?

There is something wrong with my for loop!

class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def __init__(self, name, **kwargs):
        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

    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()
        return self.reassurance()

I copy/pasted your code into the challenge and it passed both tasks

Your code is okay. Sometimes the challenge automated checkers behave weirdly. Try to copy your posted solution and paste it back. I suspect that the mixing of spaces and tabs is the main culprit and unfortunately the challenge console doesn't give feedback to that effect. Didn't face the same problem in languages that don't care about spaces, hence my suspicions.
