Event Assess API


Fires when the configured reading time period has started.

You would want to be notified about this event firing, because you might want to display a custom message for the learner that the timed reading period has begun, for example.


itemsApp.on('test:reading:start', function () {
    console.log('This code executes when the reading time has started.');
