Received some prior help to clean up my code and get this to compile which, it does in fact compile, but it seems to end after the int main(). I have tried several other possibilities with moving code around for the various functions, and I still cannot seem to get it to read beyond the int main().

Any help provided would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

  double quizAvg = (quiz1Percent + quiz2Percent) / 2;
 
  //
  // Compute the weighted average to get the numeric course grade

}

You will need a loop someplace to calculate more than one students grade, probably using everything in main() up to but not including this line:

char letter;

as the body of the loop.

You either need these:

double quiz1;
double quiz2;
double midtermExam;
double finalExam;
double courseAverage;

which, by the way would be better off declared in main() as variables with local scope and not outside of main() as variables with global scope, or, since you've gone to the trouble of declaring your own type called StudentRecord, and indicate you plan to send objects of type StudentRecord to your functions, you coud declare StudentRecord object in main() and input information directly into the objects member variables; but you shouldn't need both the individual variables and a StudentRecord object.

Your functions are all well and good, but you have to call them in order for you to use them. Declaring prototypes and defining the functions isn't enough. (Coming up with a better name for letterGrade() would be nice. Maybe, obtainLetterGrade() or something else more descriptive than letterGrade() which sounds like it should be the name of a variable, but not a function. )

You'll probably want to call the functions within the loop I talked about above, after you've obtained all the scores for a given student.

You'll probably want to call them in the following order:

computeAverage()
obtainLetterGrade()
outputRecord()

It was not necessary to loop this for multiple students. However, thank you for your help.
