    Have an easy way for Professors to try their own Test

    Description :

         Currently : We always recommend to Professors to test their own test by taking it, before they make it availalable for students.

    Currently : they can't do so in student preview mode, because then they won't see the Test, as it is not available for students. If they take it as a professor, they won't see the grade since the professor is not listed in the grade center.

    So for now what we advise them is one of these two options :

    a) Build and deploy the Test in their personal  sandbox course, make it available there and take it there, then when it's all good export it and import it in the actual course AND deploy it with Test options again. -> it's a lot of playing around ,and they risk loosing proper settings by having to deploy it a second time

    b) Build and deploy the Test in the course, but set feedback dispaly option to see the correct answe,r the number of points, etc for each question. Then take the test as a Professor and make sure it's all fine on the last feedback page. Then disable those extensive feedback options (most of the time they don't want students to have that much details because then it's easy to pass around questions and answers). -> it means they need to deploy with extensive parameters then change it, with risks of mistakes or forgetting to disable it.

        The issue :  It would be great to have something replicating the behavior of option "b" but just with a click "Try the Test" and they get to see each question like a student, to answer it, and to make sure points are calculated the way they intended it.

    For like of an easy option, many professors don't try their test before the actual exam, and then they have sometime the bad surprise to see it doesn't look how they expected, or points don't get calculated the way they had understood it would.
