It is possible to level your Foundry test character. When you hit test map on say a space map, you can warp out and play regular missions for XP and once you hit 10 or 11 you can do doff missions.

You can also claim any c-store ships you may have bought. My test character is flying an NX class.

Realistically though I do not recommend testing combat balance in map testing mode because of things like BOFF and NPC pathing (which is not calculated until publish) and a bug where sometimes enemy npcs teleport to 0,0,0 coordinates. Best bet right now is to publish a test version and run it on your regular game characters to test combat.
