Requiring Login - Testing Failure - Build Simple Rails App

Getting the following error:

1) Failure:
Expected response to be a redirect to <http://test.host/statuses/980190963> but was a redirect to <http://test.host/statuses>

9 tests, 15 assertions, 1 failures, 0 errors, 0 skips

A look at the code shows that:

test "should create status when logged in" do
    sign_in users(:jason)
    assert_difference('Status.count') do
        post :create, status: { content: @status.content }
    assert_redirected_to status_path(assigns(:status)) **#ERROR IS HERE**

You controller is probably redirecting to the status index page. You can either change the test or the controller code to match up.
