    I need help making a java program that will allow me to input 10 test grades into an array using a dialog box in one method. Then in a different method it needs to display the grades and calculate the average, highest, and lowest grade. I have no idea where to start and need a lot of help please.

    Try getting this done in a console based Java Program and once you have the logic done, you can always get it in the dialog box.

    Try reading Java How to Program by Dietel. There's a similar code there for computing average tests...

    Hey, try this one using loop :
    Code:
    double total;
    for(int student = 1; student <= 4; student++) {
        System.out.printf("Student %d\n", student);
        double sum = 0, count = 0;
    
        while(true) {
            System.out.printf("Enter your score: ");
            double input = scanner.nextDouble();
            if(input == -1) break;
            sum += input;
            count++;
        }
        total += sum;
    
        System.out.printf("Average: %.2f\n", sum / count);
    }
    
    System.out.printf("Total: %.2f\n", total);

    check this out:
    Code:
    /*
     * java program that will allow me to input 10 test grades into an array using a dialog box in one method.
     * Then in a different method it needs to display the grades and calculate the average, highest, and lowest grade
     */
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    
    public class input10testgrades
    {
    	private final int studentGrades[] = new int[10];
    	private double average;
    	
    	public void inputStudentGrades()
    	{
    		for(int i = 0; i < studentGrades.length; i++)
    		{
    			studentGrades[i] = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null));
    		}
    	}
    	public void displayGrade()
    	{
    		System.out.println("This are all the test grades\n=================================");
    		for(int i = 0; i < studentGrades.length; i++)
    		{
    			System.out.println(studentGrades[i]);
    		}
    		
    		System.out.println("\n\nThe total average of grades\n=================================");
    		
    		double gradesSum = 0;
    		int highestNum = 0;
    		int lowestNum = studentGrades[0]; //here we are getting the first grade test
    		
    		for(int grade : studentGrades)
    		{
    			gradesSum+=(double)grade; //here we are getting the total sum of all the test grade
    			
    			//here am checking for the highest number
    			if(grade > highestNum)
    				highestNum = grade;
    			//here am checking for the lowest number	
    			if(grade < lowestNum)
    				lowestNum = grade;
    		}
    		
    		average = gradesSum/10; //here we are calculate the average of the total grade test
    		System.out.println(average);
    		System.out.println("\nThe Highest Grade Number is :"+highestNum);
    		System.out.println("\nThe Lowest Grade Number is :"+lowestNum);
    		
    		
    	}
    	public static void main(String []grade)
    	{
    		input10testgrades testgrades = new input10testgrades();
    		testgrades.inputStudentGrades();
    		testgrades.displayGrade();
    	}
    }

    If this is your first introduction to Java I would suggest ignoring the fact you want a dialog box and make a simple console application to begin with. Once this is working correctly you can then put this into a GUI.
