Samantha, a project manager at FedCo, has been tasked with conducting training assessments for her team. 

This is a breeze for her to set up but she had a challenge- the challenge? Ensure each team member understands the critical information efficiently without succumbing to the usual training fatigue. 

From her experience at a previous training, she noticed that going the traditional quiz route often fell short, failing to capture engagement, well that was until Samantha discovered our new Timer feature and she added a timer to the training assessment quiz.
