It's not clear from the quiz code what a "course" is; but assuming it's just a string, an example of using the new method would be to show that the student "ashley" created in the example is taking an Algorithms course:

ashley.addCourse("Algorithms");

However, for this to work correctly, a small bug in the quiz code must be corrected in one of two ways:

// either the student creation needs a 2nd argument:
const ashley = new Student(3.9, []);

// OR the constructor needs to supply a default:
   constructor(gpa, courses=[]) {
