Initialization Option Items API


Specifies whether to warn the learner that time is running out by showing them a visual cue (red background) in the timer element of the assessment player, when the session has reached a certain amount of seconds left.

You would want to specify this option so that you can give the learners a chance to finalize their assessment before time runs out.


// 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
