It's the job of the test harness to make that information available. When
these test suites are used, they are often run several hundred tests at a
time, with only a few seconds per test, so it is important that the tests
be short and clear about whether the UA being tested has passed or failed
without distracting the tester.

For more information on what makes a good test case, please refer to this
