create a todo list app: app working as expected, tests not running

I have been following jason along on my linux laptop step by step to make sure that I can understand and replicate what he says in the screecasts, it all went fine till I had to write tests, on writing tests, this is what I got in the terminal

now, the app does behave as expected so far, but I don't know for sure how can I fix the errors displayed in the message to get the tests to run correctly.

any help on that? thanks a lot.

I'm sorry, I tried to format this using the markdown cheatsheet but it didn't work.
