testing extruder motor

Ok, I've tested out the mother board and the stepper motors and believe I've installed the extruder board software and connected up the extruder board correctly. Is there a way to test to make sure the extruder motor works before I begin tackling the hot end mechanics ?? Slow and easy steps...that gets the job done....I hope!!

The motor doesn't need filament or or hot end to turn run. If you have a host software installed you can jog it through the control panel. It might sound a little rattly though.
