Initialization Option Items API


Setting this option to true causes the assessment player timer to count down from the max_time value. By default, the timer in the assessment player counts up from zero.

You would want to specify this option so that you can reverse the timer.


// Set various assessment timer options:
// 1. Set the maximum time for the assessment to 10 minutes
// 2. Enable the warning indicator when 60 seconds remains
// 3. Force the assessment submission when the time has run out
// 4. Show the timer counting down from the total assessment time
var initializationOptions = {
    "config": {
        "time": {
            "max_time": 600,
            "warning_time": 60,
            "limit_type": "hard",
            "countdown_option": true
    // ...
