It looks to me like that probably should pass. It's checking that you
were able to successfully submit the form. Now, you may want to check
that the page that you received is the form again (and not the
"success" page) and has some kind of error message on it, like "You
forgot to fill out the name field" or some such.

Does that make sense?
