That's not the same error message you posted earlier:

      undefined method `sort_direction' for

This ^^ message tells us that sort_direction is not implemented on the example. The new message (above) tells us that fetch_param is not implemented on the helper object, which means one of two things:

1) fetch_param is not implemented as an instance method in the ApplicationHelper module. This would be just a matter of implementing it.

2) ApplicationHelper is not included in the helper object. It should be included if the spec file is in spec/helpers. Is it?
