Nearly, but earl:subject is a property of the Assertion, not of the 
TestResult. Here is the corrected version according to the latest WD:

Note: the usage of rdf:ID vs rdf:about vs rdf:NodeID is quite tricky as 
there is only a subtle (and application-specific) difference between 
their individual meanings. In ERT WG we default to using rdf:about, 
especially for the description of entities such as humans, software, or 
test cases. Also, please validate the test as I haven't done so.

   Shadi
