Trigger Create test class

I've created the trigger below and now i'm having issues creating a test class. Can someone please help? trigger Parent_Name_Trigger on Account (after insert) { List sr = new List(); for (Account newAccount: Trigger.New) if (newAccount.Student_Name__c <> ''){ sr.add (new Student__c( Account__c = newAccount.ID, Name = newAccount.Student_Name__c)) ; } insert sr; }

 public class TestAccountTrigger{

 	static testMethod void checkForStudentName()
 	{

 		Account acc = new Account (Name = 'Default Test Account', Student_Name__c = 'Test Student'); //Here you might need to add few more fields if they are required on account object
 		insert acc;
 		List<Student__c> students = [Select id, Name from Student__c where Account__c = :acc.id];
 		System.assert(students.size() = 1);
 		System.assertEquals(acc.Student_Name__c, students[0].Name);
 	}

 }

First, I suggest you edit your post and copy/paste the code text into the "insert code" popup you can access for the text editing toolbar. Makes it easier for us to read!

 

This is the code text you posted:

 

trigger Parent_Name_Trigger on Account (after insert) { 

List sr = new List(); 

for (Account newAccount: Trigger.New) 
     if (newAccount.Student_Name__c <> ''){ 
sr.add (new Student__c( Account__c = newAccount.ID, Name = newAccount.Student_Name__c)) ;
}

insert sr;
}

  

I notice your for  clause is missing its { }'s.

 

Question: is Student_Name__c a lookup field pointing to a contact record? Or is it just a text field?

 

What exactly would you like help with on your test class? Broad strokes would be to create a test class that creates an account with student_name__c populated, then make a system assertion that the newly inserted student record has that account as it's parent.
