config.time.countdown_option - Initialization - Items API

Items API Initialization


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
