I need confirmation about parts of stimulus.

An implicit premise = assumption
An explicit assumption = premise

An assertion = claim

A claim is any premise in the argument that supports the conclusion.

Is this correct?

not sure, but a claim in an argument doesn't necessarily support the conclusion.
