what's wrong?

what did 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 feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            self.praise()
        else:
            self.reassurance()

The challenge states: "If grade is above 50, return the result of the praise method. If it's 50 or below, return the reassurance method's result."

Right now you're calling the other functions, but not doing anything with the result.

You just need to add return before the call to the praise and reassurance functions. e.g.:

return self.praise()

Under PRAISE and REASSURANCE, your return statement should be in parenthesis.
