Initialization Option Items API


The reference of an existing Activity stored in Learnosity's Item bank. The specified Activity acts as a base which contains a default set of Items and properties for the assessment Activity.

You would want to specify this value so that you can initialize an assessment without needing to define the same properties each time the same learner Activity is created. Some of these properties can then be overridden if required, by providing them in the initialization options.

For example, a "base" Activity could have multiple overrides applied so that you can change the title of the assessment, change the selected Items, or even use a custom regions configuration that should be applied to all assessments.

Note Activity references (called activity_template_id when you initialize an assessment) are limited to 150 characters.


// Initialize an assessment based on an existing Activity
var initializationOptions = {
    "activity_template_id": "11111111-2222-3333-4444-aaaaaaaaaaaa"
    // ...


Request object key activity_template_id

Type string

Best practices

  • It is recommended to use a UUID for this value.
