Let's say you want 10 checked and 5 unchecked. You could do this:

response.should have_tag("input[type=checkbox]", 15)
response.should have_tag("input[type=checkbox][checked=checked]", 10)

It's not perfectly expressive, but a good example name would help:

it "should have 15 checkboxes, 10 checked, 5 unchecked" do
  render "/path/to/file"
  response.should have_tag("input[type=checkbox]", 15)
  response.should have_tag("input[type=checkbox][checked=checked]", 10)
end

WDYT?
