Viewing a quiz as a student (using Preview option)

Using the Role Switch widget will not allow you to take the test as a student does. Instead, we will utilize the Preview option.  It allows you to test the accuracy of content and grading before you release a quiz. In Preview, you can answer the questions, view allowed hints, submit the quiz, auto-grade answers, read feedback, and view report results.
