The best definition of Assertion I have seen is that given in the 1998 New
Oxford Dictionary of English:

"A confident and forceful statement of fact or belief"

I'm not sure that "forceful" is useful in the TM context, but "confident
statement of fact or belief" seems the thing that needs to be translated.
