Canvas has a built in Test Student - any actions you take in Student View are attributed to Test Student. It gives you a very good picture (but not 100%) of what actual students encounter in your course.

When I work, I often add an actual Test Student to my course for troubleshooting and documentation purposes. To do that I create a free email account using gmail or yahoo or something. Our university has the option to create "Guest Accounts". The free email account allows me to create one of those Guest Accounts to a course with the Student Role. I then use a different browser and login as my Test Student to navigate and work as Test Student.
