Configure auto-save interval in tests

    Currently, the interval at which students' responses are automatically saved while they are taking tests is fixed (at a few seconds) and cannot be changed. Unfortunately, this has a negative effect when students are answering essay questions, as the spell-checker is reset every time a save occurs, and has to scan the text again from scratch. This leads to the entered text flickering, with any spell-check underlining disappearing and re-appearing, every few seconds. This is off-putting for students taking a test, and makes it very hard to use the spell-checker effectively. Giving end-users the ability to adjust the auto-save interval would provide a way of mitigating this issue, and may have other benefits.
