Your code example is incomplete, and I'm not sure I completely understand your question, but a boolean variable will not change state unless it is reassigned in the code.

For the purpose of this challenge, your test is good, but you misspelled the variable name "isAMIN". The actual variable name is "isAdmin", and case is important. Once you fix that, you just need to add the alert message.
