I am bit confused on a part of code that I am working on. I am grabbing ArrayList data and then putting it into an Array to compute the average value of that Array , I keep on getting the following error message " Operator cannot be applied to double, java.lang.object" during my sum += average[i], Anyway the way I have the loop structured should be correct , I do not know what I am missing to cause the error ? Any ideas ? Thank you.

score is an ArrayList of Double, isn't it. Look at the API for ArrayList#toArray. Why did you declare the average array as an array of Object ?
