# 5.2.8 Average Test Score CodeHS Answers

The most common answer for the 5.2.8 Average Test Score CodeHS is:

``````Score = 0
for For3Scores in range(1,4):
Average = int(input())
Score += Average
print((Score/3))``````

This code for calculating the average test score is almost correct, but there are a couple of improvements to be made for better clarity and accuracy:

1. The print statement for the average should be placed outside the loop, so it only prints once after all scores are entered and summed.
2. It’s good practice to use descriptive variable names. Instead of `For3Scores` and `Average`, names like `score` and `total_score` might be more appropriate.

Here’s the revised version of the code:

``````total_score = 0

for _ in range(3):  # Loop 3 times for 3 scores
score = int(input("Enter score: "))  # Get the score from the user
total_score += score  # Add the score to the total

average_score = total_score / 3  # Calculate the average
print("Average score:", average_score)  # Print the average
``````

In this revised code:

• The loop iterates three times, each time asking for a score and adding it to `total_score`.
• The average is calculated as `total_score / 3` and is printed after the loop completes. This ensures the average is only displayed once, after all the scores are entered.
• Descriptive variable names are used for better readability.
