Golf Code - can't find error in code

Tell us what’s happening:
Please what seems to be wrong with my code? Because I can’t see anything wrong with it and conditions from "golfScore(4, 4) should return “Par” " don’t work.

Your code so far

var names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];
function golfScore(par, strokes) {
  // Only change code below this line
  if (strokes == 1){
    return names[0];
  }else if (strokes <= par - 2){
    return names[1];
  }else if (strokes = par - 1){
    return names[2];
  }else if (strokes == par){
    return names[3];
  }else if (strokes = par + 1){
    return names[4];
  }else if (strokes = par + 2){
    return names[5];
  }else if(strokes >= par + 3){
    return names[6];
    return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line

// Change these values to test
golfScore(5, 4);

Link to the challenge:

strokes = par - 1

= means assignment
== means loose equality
=== means strict equality

Thanks! I didn’t think the “=” signs would mean much in an if statement. Doesn’t affect in C++.
