      Description

      For instructors located outside the server's time zone, the default entry of the Tests & Quizzes date/time picker is the current server time user's computer operating system time as set by SAK-42812; not the current time as determined by instructor's time zone account preference. The instructor is able to go and correct to desired time and that is saved correctly but the default display could be confusing to users and a hassle for users who are in time zones that differ greatly from server time.

      Ex #1: User's operating system time is EST. Instructor account preference is PST. Current time of server is 11am and instructor is at 8am. Instructor goes to create test/quiz. Date/time picker will enter 11am by default. 

      Ex #2: User's operating system time is EST. Instructor account preference is Asia/Shangahi. Current time of server is 11am and instructor is 11pm. Instructor goes to create test/quiz. Date/time picker will enter 11am by default. Instructor could very easily miss that am/pm difference. This would be exacerbated even more if the instructor did test/quiz creation at 8am local time as this would cross international day line and server would be on different day.
