Here is the code:

  // them in corresponding data members.
  void computeGrade(); // Compute average and then convert the average to letter grade
  void displayRecord(); // Displays the name; two quiz, midterm, and final scores; letter grade 
  // of a student in a single row, e.g., John 95 85 90 90 90 A
private:
  string name;
  int quiz1; // 0 - 10
  int quiz2; // 0 - 10
  int midterm; // 0 - 100
  int final; // 0 – 100
  float average;
  char grade; // letter grade: A, B, C, D, or F
  int num;
  int i;
};

int main()

  const int SIZE = 10;

  student s[SIZE];

  stats.inputScores();
  stats.computeGrade();
  stats.displayRecord();
  cin >> test;

As you can see, I attempted both ways using s.quiz1 and s[1].quiz1 however both turned up as errors saying I need to declare S in a function first??? I owe you big time to whoever can help me out with this.

First off your s.quiz1 is the way to go, but your function can not see it unless you either pass it via function argument or make it external. Here's how I got your program to work. Try making the highlighted changes.


#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
using namespace std;
class student 
{
public:
   void inputScores(); // Prompts user to enter 2 quiz, a mid term, and a final score; store 
   // them in corresponding data members.
   void computeGrade(); // Compute average and then convert the average to letter grade
   void displayRecord(); // Displays the name; two quiz, midterm, and final scores; letter grade 
   // of a student in a single row, e.g., John 95 85 90 90 90 A
private:
   string name;
   int quiz1; // 0 - 10
   int quiz2; // 0 - 10
   int midterm; // 0 - 100
   int final; // 0 – 100
   float average;
   char grade; // letter grade: A, B, C, D, or F
   int num;
   int i;
};

const int SIZE = 10;
student s[SIZE];

int main()
{
   int test;
   student stats;

   stats.inputScores();
   stats.computeGrade();
   stats.displayRecord();
   cin >> test;
   return 0;
};
void student::displayRecord()
{
   cout <<"\n\n\nQuiz1 Quiz2 Midterm Final Average Grade Name" << endl;
   cout <<"_____ _____ _______ _____ _______ _____ ____" << endl;

   for ( i = 0; i < num; i++)
   {
      cout << s[i].quiz1  << " " << s[i].quiz2  <<" " << s[i].midterm  <<" "; 
      cout << s[i].final << " " << s[i].average << " " << s[i].grade << " ";
      cout << s[i].name << endl;
   }
}


void student::computeGrade()
{
   float quizaverage, midtermaverage, finalaverage;

   for ( i = 0; i < num; i++)
   { 
      quizaverage = ((s[i].quiz1 + s[i].quiz2) / 2) * .25; 
      midtermaverage = s[i].midterm * .25;
      finalaverage = s[i].final * .5;
      s[i].average = quizaverage + midtermaverage + finalaverage; 

      if (s[i].average  >= 90 && s[i].average  <= 100)
         s[i].grade  = 'A';
      else if (s[i].average  >= 80 && s[i].average  <= 89) 
         s[i].grade  = 'B';
      else if (s[i].average  >= 70 && s[i].average  <= 79) 
         s[i].grade = 'C';
      else if (s[i].average  >= 60 && s[i].average  <= 69) 
         s[i].grade  = 'D';
      else
         s[i].grade  = 'F';
}
}
void student::inputScores()
{
   cout << "Enter the number of students whose grades you wish to compute: ";
   cin >> num;
   for (i = 0; i < num; i++)
   {
      cout <<"\nEnter the students name: ";
      cin >> s[i].name;

Awesome, that worked out perfectly. I can't begin to tell you how appreciative I am for that...I'm pretty far behind in my CS240 class and was stuck on that assignment for hours. Thanks again.
