      6. Verify that the timer is shown and "Hide" is back.
      7. Hide the timer again and wait a few seconds.
      8. Verify that the timer is automatically shown and the "Hide" button is disabled once there is ~ 1 min 40 s left.

      Every now and then, some of my students (mostly ones with special needs, but not only those) tell me that they feel stressed because of the countdown timer, as it constantly reminds them that the time is running out.

      I suggest adding icons to hide/show the timer during a quiz. The timer would be shown by default. Also, it would be automatically shown and impossible to hide during the last 100 seconds, i. e. the period where it changes its colour, because it is soon going to expire.
