Trouble with: 'Learner Error: Grader timed out'

I am getting the following error while trying to get my week 3 programming assignment submitted:

  • Learner Error: Grader timed out

Please try optimizing the efficiency of your solution and submit again. You can also visit the discussion forum to see if your peers have experienced and found resolutions for similar errors, or if course staff have provided prior guidance for these errors… If the error isn’t resolved in 24 hours, please reach out to Coursera through our Help Center.

I have tried the following:

  • Make sure your ad-blocker is disabled from the browser.
  • Make sure you saved your files in the correct format. To change the format, re-save your files.
  • Check your Internet connection or network restrictions. If learner’s connection is too slow the upload may time out. If learner is using a work network, uploads may be restricted.
  • Reset your programming environment (especially for Jupyter notebooks - Reset Kernel) often will get rid of the bad code.
  • Decrease the size of the files, if possible.
  • Make sure the browser is working correctly by clearing your browser’s cookies and cache.
  • Switching browser
  • Resubmitting multiple times,
    but I am getting the same error each time since the past 2-3 days.
    Is there some way around it?How can I contact support if the error still persists?

Have you tried this?

I’d pick Platform Issues & Access as the reason for contacting.

I contact the Coursera help centre, received the following response:
"I am sorry to know that you are having trouble with your programming assignment, as I understand that you get the error: Grader timed out.
I am afraid our Help Center is devoted to technical issues within our platform, courses, and accounts. We are no content experts on any course and we would be unable to address this situation as an expert would do. "

Last, I just hope that this forum is monitored by the staff so that my assignment can be graded soon!

I don’t have access to your workspace.

Yeah, will post it there then. Let’s see if that works

Please reduce the number of layers in your model. I guess the Grader is timing out because it’s taking too long to process.
