By now you've caught a glimpse of some of the assertions that are available. Assertions are the worker bees of testing. They are the ones that actually perform the checks to ensure that things are going as planned.
There are a bunch of different types of assertions you can use.

NOTE: Creating your own assertions is an advanced topic that we won't cover in this tutorial.
