Test Pilots?

If you look at the instrument panel of a modern aircraft you will note that the old analog instruments have been replaced with what is essentially a flat screen. The display is one big computer screen. In other words, almost anything can be shown.
For example, we could use part of the display for a short alertness test.

I would feel safer when flying if I knew that the pilot took a short alertness test prior to takeoff.
