[plt-scheme] Is sharing unit tests for problems in HtDP a good way to facilitate learning?

In the case of people who are doing that on their own, where motivations is
something that you can take for granted and there is no interest in
cheating I think
unit tests and stuff like that work great (I for instance always go
for the tests whenever I want
to learn a new piece of software, and most guys from the agile field
do the same I guess).
I think the "problem" with this approach is for college students
looking only for grades
(the grading system sucks IMHO) in their testing, hmm, test? :)
