Perhaps consider making a little `racket/koan` language for your exercises that 
includes some extra conveniences. For instance, one way to address your unbound 
identifiers is to redefine `#%top` as shown below. But you could move that into 

#lang racket/base

(require rackunit)

(require (for-syntax racket/base))
(define-syntax (#%top stx)
  (syntax-case stx ()
    [(_ . id) (not (identifier-binding #'id)) #'(λ _ (format "unbound 
identifier: ~a" 'id))]
    [(_ . id) #'id]))

;; Produce a single struct that passes all assertions.
(let ([p "?"])
  (check-pred racketeer? p)
  (check-pred programmer? p)
  (check-pred struct? p)
  (check-pred procedure? set-programmer-salary!)
  (check-equal? (programmer-confusion-level p) 10)
  (check-equal? (racketeer-desire-for-racket-jobs p) 9001))
