Allows students to pretest to opt out of a module.

We have all new students take a training to become more familiar with our campus.  One of our 5 modules is a training on how to use Canvas.  Some of our new students have already used Canvas and are very familiar with it and have complained that it is a waste of their time.  And we agree!  We want to give them a "test out" of a module pathway/feature where they can prove that they know enough about Canvas so that do not have to do that one entire module.  We tried the Mastery Pathway but that would not work because have prerequisites for each of the modules.  We also want this pretest to be able to mark the module they would have taken as if it was completed so that they can earn badges and be able to go to the next module.

@bfryman Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward for broader conversation, one of our team members has hypothesized a potential interim solution: Create a page that says something on the order of “Congrats! You know how to use Canvas! Please continue on to the next module," mark it for Mastery Paths only, and assign it as the prerequisite for the top scorers.
